I started teaching sewing in my home by accident. One Sunday morning someone noticed a small purse/bag I was using they asked if I would also make one for them. Another young woman also asked if I would also make her one, but I knew she had received a sewing machine for Christmas, so I told her I would show her how to make it.

My “studio” at the time was an empty bedroom turned sewing space, that while crowded was heaven to me. To have a space to call my own after years of dining room or corner space sewing was wonderful.
Space was tight and adding an extra person made it even more so, but I found it to be fun and rewarding. My one student encouraged me to consider teaching others. Only problem was space.
Discussions started regarding moving my space to the basement:
More on the process of trading spaces in future posts.
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
