Hi, I'm Cherice, Founder and Principal Instructor at Making It SewFun. My sewing journey began as a little girl hand-making clothes for my Barbies. I would use scraps of fabric, paper towels, newspaper or whatever else I could find; much to my mom's frustration (lol).
While in high school, my best friend convinced me to sign-up for home economics so we could be in class together. She elected to take sewing versus cooking so I did as well. I LOVED sewing class and discovered a new passion that set me on a career path in fashion. Ironically my best friend hated sewing and didn't pass. Once my mom saw that I was committed to learning how to sew, she gave me my first sewing machine on my 15 birthday. I've been sewing and creating beautiful things ever since. (Thanks, Mom!)
Today, I enjoy sharing my love for fabric and sewing by teaching others how to sew. It's my hope to inspire the next generation to love working with their hands while gaining an appreciation for the process. Under my direction, students become confident sewist, build self-confidence and practice discipline with each project.
