A Chat with Kelly's Sewing
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I offer very "tailored" classes based around what you want to learn. I won't teach from a set syllabus. Instead I will coach you through steps based on your interests and aptitude. You design the course and I provide the structure.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
For basic classes I provide all materials. That's the machine, notions, fabric, everything you may need! Learn with my equipment or bring your machine and I will teach you the ins and outs. For more advanced classes students will bring their own fabric.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I graduated with a degree in technical theatre and worked in wardrobe for several touring shows. After some time I realized that I loved teaching and seeing people take pride in making things for themselves.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing people get excited about what they do! I love it when a student comes to me with a project they have been working on to show me how much they achieved on their own.
