Melanie redWhen I was in my early 20’s, I took a series of sewing courses in Saskatoon (so this was in the late 70’s). Didn’t realize at the time, but the instructor was a true master – took me all the way from an apron to tailoring women’s blazers. In some of the courses, I was the only person enrolled, but she still went ahead.

What a gift this woman gave me. Her lessons have helped me keep my love of sewing alive, and sew clothing that looks great. I hope to someday give this same gift to others.

In the meantime, I’m on a mission to learn how to make clothing that flatters me, suits my personality and style, and that fits!
