ABOUT YOUR TUTOR  Christine's mum taught her to sew when she was six, which means she has been sewing for over 39 years! She has over 25 years experience in fashion and textiles. With a career spanning 8 years employment in the Fashion and Textiles Industry she now celebrates 10 years of self employment working in costume for film, theatre, television (Game of Thrones) and large scale productions. Christine tutored at Belfast Metropolitan College for 6 years before deciding to run her own brand of classes from home.  Our N.I Sewing Bee Angeline Murphy was once one of her dressmaking students. Since 2008 she has taught more than 2000 students. She has taught from age 5 to 95 years young!  She teaches with patience, enthusiasm and encouragement at every step. Click here to read testimonials from her past students.

The Venue: Classes are held in Christine's quirky up-cycled home studio which has been featured both on television and in magazines.  This gives Christine access to her wardrobe where she can show students examples of how and where overlocking and coverstitching is used.
