The teacher, Gabriella Victorio, began sewing as a child with instruction from her grandmother. Gabriella's personal interest has turned sewing into a useful skill, and she continues to practice by redesigning vintage clothing and creating pieces like curtains, pillows, and other useful items. Gabriella received a BA in Art History from the University of Georgia and is currently working towards an MA in Arts Education. She has worked as a counselor and teacher for several years at YMCA, Hillside Elementary School, and most recently at the Georgia Museum of Art.
