Beginning in 2006, Saunders Sewing was brought to reality out of necessity. She lost her admin position just two days before the end of her probation period. The reason her supervisor gave her was "you don't fit in". This confused Joan. She was taught that if you worked hard, then you should keep your job. She learned that was a lie. Her father and her Aunt encouraged her to sew for a living. Her first client hired her to design a suit to accomodate her disability. With 20 years of sewing under her belt, Joan Saunders and her band of sewing fanatics put together a team that assists others with their sewing, textile, and costume needs.
Our mission is to make one self sufficient based on their particular need. We teach sewing, work with clothing and costume designers everyday people to fulfill their goal(s) of completing a task .
We want to people to be "sewingly self-sufficient". We plan to have videos, and travel to other cities to teach classes. Joan Saunders likes to "troubleshoot" sewing problems. Stay tuned for videos.
