I has been sewing since I was 7 years old. I’ve learned lots by trial and error! When my parents saw how passionate about sewing I had become, they enrolled me in the Singer Sewing School. I went on to college to get degrees in Consumer and Family Studies (Home Economics), Education and Interior design.

I have taught thousands of classes to pre-teens, teens and adults. I have no idea how many garments I’ve constructed or how many miles of stitches I’ve sewn! I do know that I have literally worn out several sewing machines!

It is my desire to pass on skills to future generations to keep the “art” of sewing alive!

  1. I was delighted to read your post that were mentioned in a Threads email today. Not only was it well done, but I too am a sewing teacher (retired) named Kathleen!

    Happy Sewing,
    Kathleen Worthington

  2. Kathleen, I cam across my grandmother old Necchi sewing machine while cleaning out a storage room. I have been trying to determine which model it is. I searched the internet images and it brought me to the image on your site. Can you tell me which model you have posted? Thank you.

  3. I’ve just discovered your web site and am enjoying it very much! Nicely done! Is there a way to sign up to be notified when you publish something new?

    For other readers, Kathleen was my “home ec” teacher in hi school in the early 70’s and inspired me to pursue it at the college level as well. She is still an inspiration!

  4. I don’t have the update option. I should look into getting that. I’m so glad you visited my page. I am always so proud of you when I see your posting 🙂
