Classes: Patternmaking.

After years of sewing as a hobby, Anne discovered patternmaking and fell in love. She won a garment design contest while completing her Apparel Design certificate at Portland Fashion Institute. This led to a patternmaking internship with StudioSKB. She has been teaching patternmaking at PFI and has done freelance patternmaking since 2017.

What students say about Anne:

— She is such a good teacher, clearly one of my favorites at the school
— She takes the time to explain things clearly and was very informative.
— Anne took the time to use my pronouns. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
— Quick moving, very informative, tons of info, no repetition, a great quality class.
