My day job is Academic Adviser at College for Creative Studies, which is a college of art and design in Detroit. I work with MFA students and international students in the BFA programs.
I’ve been sewing since I had Home Ec in 7th grade, but really started trying to learn more and improve my skills in the last 3 years. Taking a few online classes, attending sewing expos, accumulating books and magazines and, of course, reading sewing blogs has been rewarding and therapeutic.
It’s really encouraging to see so many sewers devoted to learning and sharing.
