It is with great pleasure and excitement, that we welcome Costa to our Janome Educator Team!
Costa’s passion for sewing began many years ago, at his grandmother’s knee and it never left him! After 40 years of teaching Elementary School Music, both in the States, and abroad, he retired and began devoting all his time to sewing. He began quilting, but quickly realized that his first love was embroidery. He began digitizing and progressed to making difficult and intricate projects. His enthusiasm knows no bounds and is contagious! The only thing he likes more than working on projects, is sharing his knowledge with others! He currently teaches classes near his home in Durham, NC. He is a favorite of both novice sewers and experienced embroiderers. They all appreciate his knowledge and expertise, but most of all his contagious enthusiasm for his craft! He makes learning fun! He is known as an edutainer”.
With degrees in Music, Education, Musical Theatre, and Costume Design, Costa is a perfect fit for our Team!
