Hi! Welcome to Aurora Creative Designs Sewing Studio!
I'm Sherry Carrington.
I'm glad you've found your way here to our site. I started sewing in the mid 70's. I did some sewing with my mother growing up (mostly tweaking the tension on her Singer Jeannie, sewing on my blue jeans) and in Jr. High.(back when it was called Jr High, instead of Middle School) I did my first shirt with buttons, cuffs, and a collar. I was learning that I loved sewing.
At age 19 I bought my first sewing machine, It was a Kenmore from Sears. I found I enjoyed every new project and challenge, always willing to tackle new skills and techniques. Perusing through every sewing book and guide I could find. In '83' I got a sewing position with a couple of ladies who owned a sewing shop in Alabama. It took no time at all to realize there was so much for me to learn about the art of sewing.
Over the following years I learned more skills and techniques as I sewed for family, children, friends, friends of friends, and worked on many different kinds sewing projects .
I've owned and operated a sewing business for over 12 years. During that time I've completed Dressmaking and Design Program, , and worked on all kinds of challenging projects. Sewing wedding gowns, bridesmaids, and flower girls dresses to dog booties for the Yukon Quest Mushers. Sewing children s wear and christening gowns to alterations on men suits.
In recent years Ive come to a place where sharing my love of sewing with the younger generation has captured my heart. I have found these students bring with them new energy, passion, and a fresh creative spark.
