Hello Sassy!!!! (and how for you to become sassy too)
The pictures kind of say it all about the title of this post, don't you think? The aforementioned sassiness is from Anna Toth, creator of Bow and Arrow Apparel. She sells on Etsy, hopefully she will sell in the shop, but she is definitely teaching some classes in October!
For the last several years, Anna has worked as a cutter, pattern maker, and instructor of sewing classes. Most notable was her time as an instructor for Turning Heads, a non-profit after school program in San Francisco, CA, which offers skills development and entrepreneurship training for at-risk high school aged young women. Through Turning Heads, Anna instructed former gang members, young and expecting mothers, and other generally rambunctious teens, keeping them out of trouble and empowering them through creative problem solving. Anna loves to teach, and loves to foster excitement in her students by equipping them with the tools they need to explore their medium with confidence.
So...Excited yet? Anna is heading in here with her incredible skills to teach some great classes for us. On the 21st will be Beginner's Basics, which is everything you need to get sewing. It will cover all kinds of good stuff, and I highly recommend it if you have never sewn a stitch. For the slightly more advanced, show up on the 28th for the Closures class - three types of zippers, buttons and snaps, oh my!
