Introducing Laura R, National Education Co-Ordinator For Floriani Embroidery Company.

Laura began sewing when she was in Jr. High School and fell in love with the art of sewing with her first project!

Laura said, “I feel very blessed to have been introduced to sewing for the first time by a talented seamstress.  Because of her willingness to share her love and knowledge of sewing skills it is still my love today.  Whether working with quilting, clothing or embroidery it is incredibly fun and rewarding.  Fast forward and I married the love of my life who is a Living History re-enactor and who knows what he may ask me to create for him next.

Having experienced working and teaching at a local sewing dealership for over 20 years has made me realize my passion is education and meeting new people.  It is just so much fun!  I have been told by students I make the classes fun and informative.  I don't just teach the how's but the why's as well.   One of my favorite memories is the store owner asking what color sky was in my world - my answer Whatever I want it to be today of course!

I am proud to represent the best product in the industry.  I have personally experienced their product showcasing my craft in its best light.  I look forward to working with you and share my "first-hand knowledge" and experience in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.  Bring your smile, your questions and even your "whoops" samples and leave feeling empowered and ready to sew and embroidery.

Remember there are no mistakes - only creative opportunities (and occasionally an un- sewing tool).”

You are going to love Laura’s approach to teaching, and her love of all aspects of sewing.
