About your Instructor

Cat Candow, raised in Germany under her grandmother’s sewing table, took her first stitches around age 3, attempting to make pants for her Teddy. She learned to crochet and cross stitch around the same time she learned to read and write but with much more enthusiasm. She moved to Canada as an exchange student and stayed to complete her diploma in Fashion Design from the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design (NBCCD). After spending 3 years in England making theater costumes, Cat returned to Canada and has been sewing, teaching, and making art ever since.
