Event description

Description

Learning to sew takes time and patience. A good teacher/instructor will guide and teach you the basic essentials needed to either get you interested in continuing to learn the skill ,and/or you may find out it's not a skill that is right for you.

Full-time, Fashion Designer and shop owner, Charla Ruschelle, has been sewing for 30 years, received her bachelor's degree in Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising and has worked in the apparel and fashion industry for 15+ years. Charla is a mentor to many young and matured who seek interest in the field of fashion and/or who are interested in learning to sew. Charla is a firm believer of the basics. Without the basics, you can not perfect and master the skill. Every class taught is a step by step learning tool and must go step by step, in order to get through the next one that follows.
