Miss Lee Ann

Miss Lee Ann

Sewing Instructor


Miss Lee Ann is our newest sewing instructor, taking over for Dot Bridges who has recently retired, She is quite an interesting lady who loves anything fabric and loves to makes garments and teaching sewing. She recently retired from teaching sewing as Springfield High School and Middle School, but loves the student interaction, so we hired her!  She has been teaching sewing for many years and just loves to see the students' faces as they "get it" when she describes a new technique that she wants them to try in class. Miss Lee Ann teaches our beginning and advanced sewing classes on Thursday evenings, and we are honored to have her teaching in our shop since she is one of the sewing judges for the TN State Fair.  When you sign up for a class with Miss Lee Ann, you will really learn how to sew! 

Miss Carolyn

Alterations Specialist and Quilt Instructor


Miss Carolyn has lived in the Robertson County area for 26 years. Originally from Indiana, she has been sewing and quilting since she was 10 years old and has had a long career as an alterations expert. She brings her unique sense of humor and friendliness to the shop and all her students constantly sign up for whatever class she is teaching, she is that much fun and patient! You will find her in the shop on Wednesdays and sometimes Saturdays, as she works one-on-one with each customer whether choosing fabrics or finishing that special achieving the perfect finishing touches on that special dress.
