LOCATION

The Stitch School Studio is conveniently located off Houston Levee Rd in Cordova, Tennessee.  My studio is at my home location, in a cute little red brick house adjacent to my home. It's the perfect little place.  It's my happy place.  I've got 4 complete sewing stations and 2 large cutting tables; more than enough to  keep my students busy learning and creating.
