Meet the Instructors


Jackie Gentner, Instructor/Owner


I've been sewing all my life and genuinely love helping others learn. 29 years ago I started developing a unique method of teaching sewing. Over that time, my program has proven very successful in teaching thousands of students in the Michiana area.

Everyone sews for different reasons, whether it's a hobby, a career, or for a personal fashion statement! But whatever your reason, age, or skill level, my program will ensure you the opportunity to reach your sewing goals while having fun in a friendly class setting.


Jean Mellinger, Assistant


I have been sewing for many years and enjoy all facets of sewing and quilting.
