I have been sewing for years and cooking even longer! With my Italian heritage and learning how to do things the "old fashioned" way I thought I would share some of this knowledge with my friends so I started a pattern drafting and sewing course at the local community college called Georgian College in Barrie Ontario. It sputtered a little at the beginning, but now finally seems to have taken off! I have a full class this semester plus my students will be competing at the Creativ Needlework Festival in Toronto in a feature called Project Catwalk! This is the first time ever that part-time students have been invited to compete against the more established full time schools in the province. I am so thrilled to be a part of this and even more thrilled for my students who will be competing!
Something new on the horizon is my latest challenge; cooking classes! I will keep you posted as happenings occur.
ciao for now
