As summer winds down, we are getting ready for our first fall season of sewing classes at The Costume Room, and we're so excited to begin! After our first semester, we have made a few schedule changes to accommodate kids' busy school year activities. We will be holding mixed age group sessions on Monday through Thursday after school, and we have added Saturday mornings. Having worked as a classroom teacher for 15 years, with kids from Pre-K through teen years, I find it a pleasure to work with kids of any age. Read more, and sign up here.
Working on Shrek, Jr. this summer in Burlington was so much fun! The kids in the show were in grades 4-8, and most of them follow up with the high school drama department as they get older. I love working with the same kids and seeing how much they grow in personality and talent from year to year. And, as their costume designer, I of course see how much they've grown in size! You can see some pictures from that show in our gallery, here.
Fall has always been my favorite season... the beauty, the crisper air, the excitement of my favorite holidays! I have always loved school, as a student, a teacher, and now as sewing instructor. It's a time for new beginnings, fresh starts, meeting new friends and making new projects. Fun, fun, fun!!!
Enjoy the last days of summer, and those long days of sunlight!
