During the class, instructor Robilee McIntyre helps students develop their own individual project, all while teaching them the ins-and-outs of their sewing machine and how to use it for basic stitching. If students already have a basic knowledge of the craft, McIntyre educates them on more advanced techniques for creating touches such as hems, ruffles, pockets, and sleeves. If possible, students should bring their own sewing machine.

The FuzzyLightbulb Studio

Robilee McIntyre's sculptures, masks, and crafts have been stylistically compared to Tim Burton and Dr. Seuss. The slanted roofs and oblong proportions of her miniature houses recall the domiciles of Whoville, while her playfully macabre faces would fit in alongside the colorful characters of Beetlejuice and Corpse Bride. Dark, yet whimsical designs such as these have garnered two studio spaces and the accolades of clients who call McIntyre "a fantastic artist and a wonderful communicator." Her miscellany of life experiences both bitter and sweet, including losing both of her parents, have shaped her artistic outlook. She named one of her studios after her father's two college nicknames and surrounds her porcelain houses with flowers in honor of her flora-adoring mother. "I seem to think in 3-D," she muses, "and these sculptures are a rewarding way for me to conquer the limitations that illustrating on a flat page holds for me." Not content to just create her own magnum opuses, Robilee educates burgeoning artists with loving instruction that invites them to answer the insistent beeper pages of their own creativity.

Robilee is a true creative spirit. Not only did she show me how to use my machine, but she showed me how to be fearless and creative in my sewing!
