Beginning in July Event planning workshops will be conducted once a month on Saturday half day. Sewing is a process which develops a life time skill. It can be very lucrative or self rewarding. Why pay a 100.00 for an item when you can make for three fourths of the cost? In 1998 I had a tragic event to occur and I had to give up my Corporate position. I went from from six figures to no figures. I realized I had too earn income. I started a sewing business a year later designing and making custom drapes and interior decorating. Custom drapes alone brought in 5000.00 per room. I did not develop the skills over night; they were dormant skills that I already had and brought them to life. Every window in my home is custom including the bathroom. I make Prom and specialty dresses for my grand daughter. Upholster my furniture, faux paint my walls and much more. When visitor come over; I am always asked what designer did I use. Sewing is a passion and a money maker for me. I love sharing my skills to assist others in developing their and making their dreams come true
