Cindy has a love of sewing that began as a child.  She studied at  Pratt Institute in New York City earning a BFA in Fashion Design.  Years of work as a designer in the garment industry enhanced her knowledge of professional construction techniques, patternmaking and  fitting, and sewing shortcuts.  She has designed and produced clothing, theater costumes, large banner installations, commercial retail displays, décor items, as well as 3-D stuffed toys and dolls.  She sees learning to sew as both a handy life skill and as a technique for creative expression.
