Your instructor, Brenda Lovie, the right brain of Lovie Couture, has been designing and making ice skating wear for over 20 years.  She is a member of SDA and a resident of Whidbey Island.

If you’ve been wondering what to do with that beautiful cloth you’ve created in another class or frustrated by using commercial patterns, these two classes will provide the logical next steps in the process of sewing a simple garment from a garment you already own. Register now as these classes will be limited to ten students.

The Pacific Northwest Art School is an Art School located on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington State.  Each year they hold workshops and classes in Fiber Arts, Mixed Media, Painting, and Photography.
