“I simply cannot say enough great things of this amazing seamstress / artist / teacher. She is so talented. Her artistry and mastery of her craft is extraordinary. I was lucky enough to take a class from her not knowing a thing about sewing. She is an extraordinary teacher! She was so patient with me and gave me great confidence. I am very much looking forward to learning more from Tracy.”
