Phyllis Clark began sewing as a young girl with her mother’s Singer sewing machine. She continued sewing in high school and college. Sewing became not only a necessity but an extremely enjoyable venture after college when she would sew for herself, for work and for her daughter. Later, as assistant manager for a major fabric store, she sewed sample displays, and during this time she also taught clothing construction at Chico State University. When she was placed in Scottsdale, AZ, she began working as manager for a Husqvarna Viking dealer in several stores, which led to a job as a Freelance Educator for Husqvarna Viking for 11 years. In 2013, Phyllis moved to Placerville. Phyllis is a Palmer-Plesch Certified Instructor and a Martha Pullen Licensed Serger Heirloom.
