Darlene has been helping us here at the sewing studio since last summer and the depth of her knowledge about everything sewing never ceases to amaze. Darlene started her sewing career when she took her first sewing class at the Girls Club at age 10. It was love at first sight and and she has not stopped sewing since! With a degree in Textiles and an extensive background both in garment construction (industrial and home sewing) and window treatment design and production, Darlene is a real asset. Darlene teaches everything from basic sewing techniques to advanced production techniques. Fitting and alterations are another of her strengths.
If it’s about sewing, Darlene wants in! She often has a tip or piece of information that will get sewing students to a higher level. She is innovative and a problem-solver and she has endeared herself to our students with her unique vision, crackerjack sewing skills and delightful personality. Darlene is a wonderful addition to our group of sewing teachers!
