I have had experience in using and altering most brands of pattern, handling most types of fabrics and solving a multitude of sewing difficulties. In these classes I have worked with women and men (yes, there are a few) from young to mature with many learning styles. I have completed my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
Further, I have been working from home doing clothing alterations, sewing for a plus size boutique and soft furnishings including cushion recovering.
I am familiar with the functioning of many, but not all, brands of sewing machines and overlockers. Part of my job is selling and demonstrating a variety of brands and styles of sewing machines and overlockers, both new and second hand.
I love sewing and creating garments. I also love sharing what I know in a fun and creative way. I started Rita's Sewing Room so others can share what I have learned, so you can benefit from my experiences. So join me on this sewing journey!
