Meet your instructor:
My name is Anna-Marie. I am originally from the Canadian West Coast but have lived in Winnipeg for ten years. I live in the West End with my partner and work out of our home.
I have been sewing since I was three years old. I learned at my grandmother’s knee and to this day I still have some of her sewing supplies.
