Winnie’s Custom Fashion Design

Eponymous owner Winnie Williams uses Winnie’s Custom Fashion Design as a stage from which she illuminates the mesmerizing world of fashion. Winnie lovingly curates a rotating selection of handmade clothing alongside a collection of exhibits, publications, and programs that educate her patrons about fashion. The shop’s staff alters clothing for clients and instructs the design curious in introductory and advanced clothing- and accessory-making classes. During classes, attendees learn basics, such as how to thread a needle, operate a sewing machine, and how to perform sutures on accident-prone dolls. They might also complete advanced projects, such as constructing a handbag from scratch. During its periodic fashion shows, Winnie’s Custom Fashion Design shows off the modest, classy designs that characterize the company.

Great time and Winnie was very pleasant and professional!

Awesome class but I liked it more because of Winnie. She's super nice and friendly. Although I took the beginners class she went according to how fast we were learning. I'm not sure but we ended up making a tote bag which is suppose to be intermediate.
