Shannon Gifford loved to sew. She also loved to teach others how to sew!
Shannon's sewing experiences were wide and varied. She taught classes in basic sewing construction, embellishment, and fit. She created costumes for stage and film production. Her custom clothing business (which closed in 1996), provided wardrobe construction as well as bridal and formalwear.
After she closed her custom clothing business, Shannon concentrated on teaching others to sew. Her students have ranged from the rank beginner to the advanced. She taught students privately, in classroom settings, as a lecturer, and as an online sewing instructor.
Shannon also contributed to several national sewing publications, including Threads magazine. She had a regular column in the Atlanta ASG publication, Sew It Goes.
