"I tried things I never would have tried on my own, and built confidence watching the videos. I would love a class that builds on this one - one with zippers too!"

"The course helped me so much. It “forced” me to try new things. I have ordered a coverstitch machine because the course made me confident in sewing with knits and using my serger."

Sherry

Hey! I am Lindsey

Shopping in stores has always been a disappointing experience for me. Either its impossible to find my size, the pieces shrunk after washing, or the quality was terrible and the seams were coming apart after only a few wears. 

I spent 20 years of my life trying to make my body fit into the clothes I wanted to wear. Only recently I have realized that it's not my job to alter my body to fit in clothes someone else has designed. Those clothes should be designed to fit my uniquely beautiful body. 

In Be The Maker, I simplify the process, break it down step by step, and teach you the simple and easy methods to making your own garments. 

In no time, you will be feeling more confident in yourself. It is incredible what a well fitting piece can do for you! 

Be The Maker!

The course starts April 19th, 2021! We are excited to start this sewing journey with you!
