About Me

Hi! I'm Donna Vanden-Heuvel ~ Owner/Instructor at Sew by Heart studio!

My love of sewing began at about the age of 12 and has been a constant source of JOY throughout my life!!  I started out making my Mom's maternity clothes at age 15, and my own unique 'designer' outfits in high school, then later moving on to sew for my children and my home.  Eventually, I had my own workroom sewing for designers in the Charlotte area, which then led to using a graphic arts program to design and sew custom window treatments for clients.

I am passionate about sharing my love of sewing with the next generation and helping them to discover for themselves the endless JOY, and amazing POSSIBILITIES that await them as they learn to SEW!!!
