About Me and CYOJ Founder

HELLO everyone!!! ~Waves~ I am the new owner(Yes the "buck stops here") of Create Your Own Joy Studios!  I am so excited to meet and work with all the students, young and young at heart.  I have had many jobs, but the job I have been the most passionate about over the last seven years is teaching.  Education is so important and I just love that sewing can be a skill that you can use for the rest of your life.

I look forward to helping each of you develop your skills and my personal goal is to get academic/occupational credits from the Dept. of Education for the students.  I hope that more adults, both men and wom…
