The Teacher, Amy Waters

Amy learned her sewing skills from her mother, her aunts and grandmothers. She is passionate about passing on the artistry of sewing to others. She knows that we all can sew and wants to arm students with these basic life skills. Amy homeschooled her daughter through graduation. Through the years of homeschooling she taught sewing classes from her sunny kitchen and nature classes to students in her homeschool group. Her kitchen often looks like a wedding boutique! In the past, her kitchen was regularly overtaken with costumes for homeschool drama troupe productions and today, this creative spot continues to be a center for growing talent and blessing others. She finds joy in Jesus’ incredible mercy, the great outdoors and her church. Read more about Amy’s background in A Stitch in Time.
