About the Instructor

Having learned to sew on a machine at a very young age, Cris knows well the empowerment that comes from being able to use "grown up"  tools to bring creative ideas to life. Cris has turned her childhood hobby into a decades-long creative career.  She has done alterations, denim and vintage clothing repair and run her own independent handmade clothing line. She is an avid proponent of reuse and the handmade wardrobe fashion movement and believes that sewing is a valuable life skill for children and adults alike. She approaches sewing for children as a creative way to teach basic concepts of modeling, such as aligning lines and shapes and turning 2D drawings (pattern pieces) into 3D objects. Cris Wood currently teaches machine sewing to grade school age children in after school classes in the Seattle Public School District.
