Happy Easter 


Happy Easter! I hope you and your family the many blessings of the Easter holiday!

With Easter, the spring season is here. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring is a wonderful time for new beginnings and a fresh start.  I'm looking forward to warmer days, longer nights and fresh flowers.

A special thanks to all my fans for your continued support of my music and creative endeavors!

Enjoy the day,

Fun in Harlem: Harlem Fashion Week Sewing Class! 

Benita Charles and Yvonne Jewnell of Harlem Fashion Week

I had the pleasure of attending the Harlem Fashion Week Sewing Class with the lovely Yvonne Jewnell for the month of January. She is the Co-founder of Harlem Fashion Week. This month's theme was "Warm Clothes."

Ms. Yvonne is such a great teacher and an excellent seamstress.  Her demonstrations were always spot on. She also had an incredible amount of patience for those who needed extra care. Not to mention she was a beautiful person and so much fun. I love how she pours into the youth with her HFW Youth Fashion After School Program!

One of the main things that I loved about the class was that we walked away from the class with greater technique and a finished garment. Pictured is the "Infinity Scarf" that I made in class.  The t-shirt I'm wearing I made in the Heat Press Workshop presented by Harlem Fashion Week last Thursday.  It was so much fun and I loved how the shirt turned out.

The class thought me how to be more patient with myself and allow myself to make mistakes when trying something new. Those who know me know that's not easy for me but this experience has been a great life lesson. The only way you're going to grow is by making mistakes. The great thing is you can always rip the seems out and try again, just as long as you don't give up!

I would highly recommend this class if sewing interests you. The classes are held at Save-a-thon Fabrics Store in East Harlem.
