We are "All About Sewing"...
Sue Kondis, Owner
From my earliest years, sewing and hand crafts have been a part of my life. My grandmother and mother both considered “the sewing machine” to be an essential piece of furniture in their homes. I cherish my grandmother’s machine - still in my home today. But I have definitely moved into the 21st century in my personal sewing room.
Hand crafting, like cross stitch and embroidery, filled many enjoyable hours for me as a young child. Home Economics classes in high school began my love for garment sewing and pattern fitting. I received a B.S. in Clothing & Textiles/Home Economics from West Virginia Wesleyan College. After raising my family, I became a Master Fashion Maker through the Mobile County Extension Service.
For the next 18 years, I was a freelance instructor for a Mobile, AL Sewing Store. During those years, I also ran West Mobile Sewing Studio out of my home where I taught a wide variety of sewing classes. It was during those years, I developed a of love of teaching children to sew. What an honor it is to be able to pass on the love of a craft that I am so passionate about! In 2002, I co-founded All About Sewing in West Mobile where I now oversee a state-of-the-art Sewing Classroom and teach machine mastery, basic sewing and many specialty classes. In 2012, I became the sole owner of All About Sewing and now, mostly sew vicariously through my students and customers.
