About the Instructor:

Stephanie grew up fascinated while she watched her mother and grandmother sew. One day while 'underfoot' Stephanie's grandmother handed her some fabric scraps, needle and thread with a 5-minute hand sewing instruction lesson on how to sew Suffolk puffs (also known as yo-yo's). Stephanie hasn't put the needle down ever since that day.

Stephanie's passion lead her to become a sole owner and operator of her own sewing business. She has participated in several events with her talent including church events and events with the performing arts center in her native town of New Philadelphia, Ohio. Today Stephanie offers beginners sewing lessons and sells her folk art and primitive creations online while offering memory bear sewing services to bereaved individuals.
