MEET SANDY

Sandy began her career by studying with a well known Calgary designer Mithe de Fontenay, learning pattern drafting and couture sewing classes with Susan Khalje a respected author and bridal couture in Portland. Sandy has completed Sit & Sew classes in New York with Kenneth King (author and instructor at the Fashion Institute in New York). Sandy is passionate about sewing, teaching people how to sew, design and fashion and continues to develop her expertise.

A recent trip to Paris visiting Vermont (an embroidery house); Tassinari et Chatel (a textile firm that has woven fabrics for every King, Queen andEmperor since the 1600’s) and Legeron (where hand made flowers are made for every famous fashion designer) was an inspiring and educational experience.

Over the years, her sewing students have gone from learning to operate a sewing machine, to developing designs of their own and ultimately realizing their fashion vision.

FROM TAEA, PAULA & LEANNE ~

Taea has enjoyed her time sewing with you so much over the past five years! Thank you for being such a great teacher — she has become very skilled with your guidance and expertise, and is so excited to be sewing her own Grad dress this year! 

We’ll always remember your kindness, and also your fun fashion shows! With Taea heading to university next year, this is our farewell message to you too — we will miss you very much. 

Love Taea, Paula, and Leanne

FROM MOLLY ~

“My name is Molly and I have been in sewing classes with Sandy for 3 years.  My experience has been always fun and entertaining.  When I first arrived at sewing, I was terrified of the thought of using a pattern; now I can follow any pattern easily!  I first heard about it from my sister’s friend and I joined a year after my sister.  Probably one of the most exciting parts of the entire year is the annual fashion show where we get to model all the thingswe made throughout the year.  We also make crafts on holidays.  One of the best feelings is when you are almost done a project and you can finally see how much it will look like the picture in front of the pattern.  I am so happy I decided to try sewing, it is so much fun and Sandy is an awesome teacher.”
