Registration for Creativation University is open! Over the next several weeks, we’ll introduce you to some of our workshop teachers and seminar speakers so you can learn what to expect from taking their live classes in Phoenix this January.
This week, meet Kim Bell.
If your goal is to learn more about sewing and sewing techniques, then Kim’s workshop, Sewing Notions 101 is for you. Kim will teach you useful and unique sewing tools and hardware, explain how to use them, and let you give them a try! Plus, you’ll take some of the tools home with you.
Read our interview with Kim to get to know her and more about her Creativation workshop.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My mother is a sewer and I became interested at a very young age. I started to make my own clothes at age nine and went on to receive a degree in Home Economics Education. I have been in the creative industry for over 20 years. Currently, I am a Product Specialist for Prym Consumer USA. My goal is to teach others about sewing and hopefully transfer that love of creating to them.
In a few words, tell us about the education session you’re teaching at Creativation.
Have you ever stared at the sewing notions wall in your local store and asked – What are all these tools used for? Why are there so many different pins and needles? We’ll answer those questions and more during Sewing Notions 101. It will be a great introduction to our wide range of sewing products. We’ll be making some simple projects while we learn about the many uses of sewing tools.
Who and why should someone attend your session?
Beginning sewers and those who want to learn more about sewing should register.
What are you looking forward to the most at Creativation in Phoenix?
I am looking forward to meeting lots of creative people, and hearing and seeing their great ideas.
What do you love most about your job?
I get to express myself creatively and share my knowledge with others.
What do you love most about the creative industry?
Innovation; just when you think it has all been thought of or there’s no better way to do something, someone has another great idea!
