This is great for someone who isn't fairly new to sewing, but it is a bit complicated. I liked it a lot.
Ruth has a very straightforward and easy-to-understand approach to pattern drafting. She explains not just HOW to do something, but WHY a step is being taken, which is definitely useful to me. I look forward to spending many more hours with her, learning to sew for myself and for my family.





As long as I can remember, I’ve had a healthy addiction to the arts; from fashion to photography to food, and everything in between.  I love it all! After working as a Dental Professional for 10 years, I decided to pursue a more creative career in the arts. In 2011 I completed my Bachelors of Fine Arts at Columbia College Chicago.My focus was apparel design and production. But, I also focused my studies on graphic, as well as jewelry design.

I currently work full-time as a professional apparel designer. I specialize in athletic apparel and dye sublimation. I work for a small, family owned business based in New Zealand and I do everything from product development, pattern making, custom design, marketing, website development, to production.
