Barb's Sewing School
Barabarah Tiews, owner and  Licensed kids Can Sew Instructor says, "It's a great feeling to make something with your own hands – that's what I discovered when I began sewing at age 7. The  satisfaction of making something; of taking fabric, cutting it into shapes, and assembling then so that something new is created has caused me to  pursue sewing with a passion. My great delight is to share that passion and to see the satisfaction it brings others to learn or enhance their sewing skills."
