The History of Sewing by Amber

"It's Not Learning Unless it's Fun!"

I can't remember a time I haven't been sewing. My Grandma O'Connor, just Gram to all those who knew her, was a seamstress. As far back as I can remember she had me removing stitches and hand sewing scraps.

After years of training with her to perform everything from mending to pattern making, and at her encouragement, I took my first in-person sewing student on establishing Sewing by Amber in 2017.

Since then, I've had so much FUN with you guys! Helping you learn to sew ... Making you feel like a princess with a perfect wedding dress fit... And bringing your dreams to reality with customized backpacks, quilts, and cosplays.

While Gram now watches over us from heaven, her gently guidance, patient instruction, and hands-on learning approach stays with us here at Sewing by Amber. 

Thank you for joining us on this adventure and we hope you'll stop by again real soon!
