Perfect! Christina has been an excellent sewing teacher for my daughter and already in 3 sessions, she has covered an ugly office chair and made it look amazing. My daughter feels proud of what she has made and is eager to learn more with Christina.

Christina's response

Lilli is a quick learner. She mastered pinning straight lines and sewing straight and curved lines.
Lilli needs to stay on track and not tend to think too far ahead with complicated sewing structures. She needs to master basic sewing skills to proceed with more complicated tasks. Great ambition she has.

Christina is a bubbling joy of talent, creativity, encouragement & gorgeous personality, so personable & genuine. Chrissy always dresses in the most gorgeous designs, often her own inspired creations! She may be tiny but she has a creative & magnetic presence that always stands out. I couldn't think of a more inspiring, knowledgeable & encouraging teacher for anything regarding fashion, garment making & creative textiles. She would also make learning a lot of fun.

I was very lucky to have met Christina many years ago and she taught me how to sew in a small intimate group of 6 people. It was a lot of fun and I found her to be very patient and informative. I also found her to be very creative, knowledgeable and most of all encouraging. Christina made us all feel very comfortable and it was a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. I thoroughly recommend Christina as a teacher , she has a lot to offer and is very passionate about her craft .

I first met Christina at Fashion College. She was always a standout with her funky style and designs.
She has travelled the world collecting amazing fabrics and creating superb designs.
Christina is very knowledgeable and very personable which makes her a fabulous teacher.
I would recommend Christina if you want to learn from one of the best in Perth.
