Sewing Instructor Jen teaches sewing and is our “craft innovator” at Create!® . “My mother taught me to sew. Since then, my love of sewing and all things creative has grown immensely. Thinking outside the box, working in unconventional ways with limitless types of fabric allow for endless possibilities, which I find very exciting! Learning to sew develops self-confidence, which I’ve seen in every student I’ve worked with at the sewing studio. What a rewarding place to be for students and teachers alike!
