Louise's love affair with sewing began at the age of 7 when her mother helped her cut out and sew a "Chanel" suit for her doll. From there she quickly progressed to sewing garments for herself and developed a life-long passion for needlework in all its many forms.
After high school, Louise completed a Diploma of Adult Education and then entered the workforce, holding various training and management roles in the corporate world. She also completed a two-year certificate, by correspondence, at the Ecole Haute Couture - School of Sewing ad Design in Canada.
After retiring from the workforce, Louise has enjoyed combining her two loves, sewing and teaching. She considers it a real joy to pass on her knowledge to people who share a passion for fabric, thread and needle.
