Hi, I am Mardie and I’ve been sewing since I was 15 years old. When I first started out I mainly sewed small things and costumes for my friends to attend Renaissance Fairs. During college I was approached to teach 1 evening class at Handwerkstudio Leiden. I ended up taking on the entire studio with 2 colleagues and I’ve been teaching how to sew ever since!

I am definitely not an old-fashioned seamstress and I work with modern techniques and natural lines. Sewing class is about gaining confidence in your work and learning to tackle problems in creative ways. Together we will work on your techniques and habits to be able to sew better.

See you in sewing class!
