Instructor Bio: My name is Laurie-Ann Martin and I can,t think of a better way to spend time but to sew! I,ve been an enthusiastic sewer for most of my life. I love it! I am recently retired from a 31-year career as a teacher and principal. About 2 years ago, I decided to give my bags a proper name which was how "Purple Martin Handbags" came to be. Now I have all the time in the world to be sewing and selling custom handbags! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my passion with you. I look forward to getting to know other people who love to sew and am excited to be a sewing instructor at Cindy-rella's!
