Candace is one of our great sewing teachers. She has helped many a budding crafter learn to sew or to expand their skills. Read on below to learn a little more about her and the classes she runs here at Knit & Bolt.
Hello! I'm Candace, and I love to sew, knit, embroider and bake. I have 2 little boys and they think it's great that I can make toys and clothes for them. I have my own sewing business and try to split up my crafting time between making for work and home.
How long have you been sewing?
I started sewing when I was 12. I wanted to make a shirt for myself and decided try it out one night. I've been sewing and creating in some sense, either by hand or with machine, for 20+ years now.
What is your background in teaching?
I started teaching sewing at Crafty Planet in 2009 and taught there until they closed in 2017. Before that I was teaching friends to sew on my own. Now I'm teaching some of the old Crafty classes at Knit & Bolt and new classes like the Cleo Skirt class.
If you can't make any of the prescheduled classes Candace also teaches one-on-one. Just shoot us an email with what you would like to learn and dates that work for you.
