Learn with Virginia

As someone who's dedicated three decades to the craft of clothing design and creation,
organization, and entrepreneurship-
I've witnessed the transformative power these skills hold.


I incorporate everything I love about fabric, fiber, color, and texture
into my art, my designs, and my business. 
I spent years in school learning the art. Let me save you years of learning on your own!
