“Sew, a Needle Pulling Tread”

Class Spotlight: Sewing, Design and Fashion Arts

Sewing Classes with Sandra Poirier can take you from threading your first needle to pattern making and garment construction. Préville Online! will provide you with the materials that you’ll need to get started–delivered right to your door!

What You Can Expect From Sandra’s Classes

Beginners will be guided through all necessary basic skills, building confidence in hand stitching, as well as in their understanding of how patterns and projects come to life.

Intermediate and advanced participants who have already acquired basic skills will be able to tackle more complicated projects knowing that help is at hand to work through any little snags that come along. Sandra is ready to share her years of expertise, and can teach you how to measure and design for different body types, cut patterns and troubleshoot issues that may arise at any stage of your project.

All classes are taught LIVE on our easy-to-use platform. Since class sizes are small, Sandra can take the time to address each participant’s individual needs and progress.

About Préville’s Resident Couturière, Sandra Poirier!

Sandra Poirier’s career in Fashion Arts  began in Montreal, but took her all over the world where she designed and worked for many name brand labels. After graduating from Chambly County high school (now Saint-Lambert International), Sandra went on to study at the Montreal Fashion Arts Academy, which launched her into a long and rewarding career in the garment and fashion industry of Montreal. Her talent eventually won her a place at the renowned École Cotnoir-Capponi where she studied marketing and the art of haute couture. 

Sandra discovered her love of teaching at Préville Fine Arts Centre over 20 years ago, through her friendship with its founder, Belva Thomas. Sandra delights in teaching her popular sewing classes to all ages and levels of students. 

No project is too small and no idea too daunting!
