Sewing Instructor Ruth has been sewing for many years. She is a talented quilting and garment sewing instructor. Ruth’s former work was as a special needs teacher in the public system and she has carried that sensitivity to children into her teaching at Create! Sewing Studio.


Sewing Instructor Christina, a graduate of Bard College, got hooked on sewing when she started working in the college costume department! After graduating, Christina designed costumes and sewed for productions first in Chicago, Illinois, then in Indiana  and later in St Louis, MO. Now back in New England, Christina’s creativity combined with a meticulous eye for detail and a pleasant and friendly temperament has made her a popular choice with sewing students of all ages!

Assistant Sewing Instructor Stephanie started sewing with us as a student several years ago. She sewed her way through every project in our 14 level curriculum and then started sewing dresses for her mom! She was so dedicated and talented that she became one of our Interns in 2019 and now she has become an Assistant Sewing Instructor at Create! Sewing Studio. We are so excited to have her join our team!
