When she was a kid, her mother used to make clothes for her family and all the times she was helping her mother, she started to develop an interest in sewing. Before she took sewing classes, she was already skilled in hand sewing but after a few professional sewing classes, she could make a more complicated end product such as blouses with collars, darts, cuff sleeves and so on. Her passion for sewing still remains till today and she is willing to give her tips and ideas on how to sew professionally to ensure the end product is of high quality.
