Sewing With Sandi

About Me

About me – I am a sewist, instructor, speaker, and freelance writer who loves fashion and sewing. I love teaching sewing techniques for a fabulous high end look garment.

My special gifts are helping people get the fit they desire from their sewing experience and teaching newbie sewists how to make garments that have a high-end retail look. You can be stylish and fashion forward at any age, it’s just a matter of fit and proportion.

I recently placed 5th in the PBS Create TV 2020 Craft Challenge out of nearly 100 entries across the country.


Group and private (even Zoom) classes on sewing, fit, pattern design, and wardrobe planning.

Group and private fabric shopping trips in New York City’s Garment District. A group shopping trip to London is planned for 2022.

Content creation based on sewing and fashion for blogs, social media, and webpages.

Work with designers and inventors facilitating prototype samples.

Transform Wedding Dresses into heirloom Baptismal Gowns.

Test patterns reporting critical errors prior to printing.

A Conference speaker with a focus on Women Owned Small Business, Fast and Slow Fashion and Ecological Consequences, Starting a Thriving Craft Business, and Starting a Successful Blogging Career.
