Sewing Classes

We have a darling new sewing instructor here at Harmony and we’re so excited to introduce her to you! Ashley Asay will teach Friday afternoon Beginning Sewing classes beginning September 5th.

We asked her to introduce herself…

Hi!  My name is Ashley Asay and I am so excited to be teaching sewing lessons this year at Harmony!

I grew up in Sandy, Utah.  During high school, my summer job was to teach sewing lessons in my parents basement.  I moved down to Provo to attend school at BYU.  I graduated in Family and Consumer Sciences Education (the new name for Home Ec) and since then have been teaching at a local middle school.  Teaching sewing has always been my dream job!  I’m so lucky!

I began sewing at the age of 8.  One of my friend’s moms taught sewing lessons each Friday after school.  We walked to their house and sewed the afternoon away.  I have very fond memories of those days!  Except for the time I wore the pajama pants I made to school for “Pajama Day” and they split right down the middle.  I’ve learned a few sewing skills since then!

From a young age, I knew I wanted to teach.  I would gather all my stuffed animals and teach them “school”.  I love working with children and teens (Adults too!).   It is so fun to see the excitement of a finished project.  Some of my favorite projects include quilts, skirts with pockets, and swimsuits.  I can’t wait to inspire each other with our creativity and love for sewing!
