For over 10 years I’ve been teaching an almost lost art to young (and not-so-young) people: I teach them to sew. In fact, JoLene’s Sewing School just celebrated its 10-year Anniversary!
Being a sewing teacher has been such an amazing adventure, and I’m so fortunate to have so many wonderful kids and adults along for the ride.
One of my favorite things about having my own sewing school is helping my students gain the confidence to do anything they set their minds to. So often I’ll watch a new student begin a class with fear in their eyes…then find a spark of confidence…and finally leave at the end of the day with an internal fire that roars, “Yes, I can do this!”
It is my greatest joy to own my sewing school and to make lifelong friends through this work. I’m not sure who learns the most – me or my students (but I’m pretty sure it’s me!).
Are you in the Happy Valley or Portland area and want to learn to sew? Give me a call at (503) 804-7259 or send me an email at Jolene@JoleneSews.com. I’d love for you to join the adventure as JoLene’s Sewing School continues into the next 10 years…and beyond!
