Sandra Marshall is our in shop classroom teacher. We are very blessed to have her with us. She has a very impressive background in teaching and sewing. She taught junior high students in Morgan City, La so she loves and knows how to share her knowledge.
She has honed her talents not only with many years of experience but by taking classes from master teachers. She first learned heirloom sewing by hand forty years ago from a student of Sarah Howard Stone. She took other heirloom classes from Masters such as Jeannie Baumeister of “Old Fashion Baby”, Wendy Schoen of “Petite Poche”, and Martha Pullen schools. Needless to say she is now a pro at heirloom sewing by machine!
She also spent a week end with Australian Pat Holden of “Australian Smocking Magazine” who taught the unique and amazing bishop method that Sandra teaches in our bishop class. She also teaches the beginner smocking and picture smocking classes with knowledge gleaned from these amazing Australians and from years of practice.
You will be blessed if you take one of her classes. She has so many tips to share that will make your sewing so much more enjoyable.
