Carrie simply loves to sew! She started designing and making her entire wardrobe at 14 years old. This passion has extended into an International journey that has embraced every aspect of the textile and garment industry. Carrie worked on the development of Hi-tech Fibers such as Spandex and microfibers. She also was involved in the training of sewing operatives at several high end British garment factories. Recently, Carrie created a series of Digitized embroideries that she marketed through in-person presentations and internet outlets.
From 1998-2004, Carrie owned and managed Main Street Sewing and Vacuum in Vancouver, WA. This expanded her love of sewing in the Embroidery, Digitizing, Crafting, Heirloom and Quilting arenas. She has received certification and training from Sue Hausman, Martha Pullen, Alex Anderson and Connie Crawford.
An event led by Carrie will infuse you with inspiration and motivation to expand your sewing, quilting, embroidering love and skills. She now brings all of this knowledge, experience and skills to SVP as an Elite Educator.
