have fun, not frustration!
Martha Burns is a designer (architectural, interior and textile), artist, knitter, gardener, cook, and teacher. One of the skills she loves to teach is sewing. She has learned how gratifying teaching sewing is while working with five to thirteen year olds at the Eli Whitney Museum in Hamden, CT. (Please visit www.eliwhitney.org for summer classes).
Sewing has brought me so much pleasure and challenged me creatively that I want to share it with others. I want to demystify sewing and make it fun!
