Hi, I'm Katrina Marie and I'll be your sewing instructor here at Kids Sewing.
When I was just five years old, I began sketching and creating paper dolls. From there, I began working on doll cutouts, each with a collection of paper clothing that attached to the dolls magnetically.
At 10, I created my first line of doll clothing and marketed it at a local craft show. It was so fun to buy the fabrics, create this line of doll clothing and package them I was hooked!
As a teenager, I began making clothes for myself, my friends and even got paid to sew for others.
By the age of 18, I was sewing professionally for alteration shops, a costume shop, a theater, and a dance wear studio.
Then, when I was 19, I started my own dress collection, designing historically inspired pieces.
For the next 10 the years designed and made thousands of dresses, selling to customers all over the world.

In 2009, I started working on Kids Sewing DVDs which grew out of my love for sewing and my desire to share and teach children this incredibly valuable art.
As both a mother and sewing teacher, it is such a wonderful feeling to share the experience of discovery with a child.
I love watching as a project comes to life in their hands, and seeing their faces light up when they finish a project they have worked hard to create.
I'd love to have you join me on your sewing journey!
