Claudia Buchanan Professional Sewing Instructor and Trainer
Sharing my skills with others and helping people create beautiful projects and to gain the confidence to step out and create on their own is the highlight of my day! It doesn’t matter if it is business class or how to sewing classes that helps you reach your goals. We have some students take a class just because it was on their bucket list. How funny is that?
