KATIE BERTRAND – Louisville, KY
My passion for sewing started in middle school after my sister came home with a stuffed octopus she made in her Home Economics class and I was dying to make one to. I took a few classes at Stretch N Sew but mostly have been self taught. I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising from the University of Kentucky. During college I worked for a costume shop and alterations shop and fell in love with altering clothes which I know is crazy as most sewist don’t like to do alterations but I love taking apart garments and making them fit great. I opened my own Alterations and Embroidery gift shop in 2009 called Sew Cute by Katie in Louisville, KY. I am available to teach classes for individuals, groups or virtually.
