Meet your instructor! Welcome Sue Long!
“My passion for sewing started when I took my first sewing class at the girls club of South Boston when I was eight years old. I haven’t stopped loving it. Always had an interest in fashion design and altering clothing to my liking. I enhanced my skills when I worked at a men’s clothing store Anderson Little as a Tailor in the 1980s. Soon after I started working out of my home while raising 3 children. In 1990 I opened a store front in Wilmington, MA Custom Stitch adding dry cleaning, embroidery and screen printing to the existing alteration business. Sold the business in 2011 while working in the hotel business, which I have since retired. Now I am back doing what I love. I have started teaching sewing, to new and advanced sewers, specializing in alterations! “
