MEET YOUR SEWING INSTRUCTOR
Hi, I'm Katrina Marie and I'll be your sewing instructor here at Kids Sewing. When
I was just five years old, I began sketching and creating paper dolls.
From there, I began working on doll cutouts, each with a collection of
paper clothing that attached to the dolls magnetically. At 10, I created
my first line of doll clothing and marketed it at a local craft show.
It was so fun to buy the fabrics, create this line of doll clothing and package them I was hooked!
As a teenager, I began making clothes for myself
and for my friends, and by the age of 18, I was sewing professionally
for alteration shops, a costume shop, a theater, and a dance wear
studio. Then, when I was 19, I started my own dress collection,
designing historically inspired pieces.
For the next 10 the years designed and made thousands of dresses, selling to customers all over the world. You can see my dress website at katrinamariedesigns.com
In 2009, I started working on Kids Sewing DVDs which grew out of my love for sewing and my desire to share and teach children this incredibly valuable art. As both a mother and sewing teacher, it is such a wonderful feeling to share the experience of discovery with a child, watching as something comes to life in their hands, and seeing their faces light up when they finish a project they have worked hard to create. I'd love to have you join me on your sewing journey!
