Beth Huntington is a kindergarten teacher by day and popular blogger by night, known as the "Renegade Seamstress." At first, necessity made her shop at thrift stores. Over time, that necessity grew into genuine excitement -- a frequent treasure hunt! Her passion for shopping at thrift stores and turning discarded items into new and useful gifts and home decor, and then taking before and after photos of her creations, led her to start her blog, Her blog lets her share glimpses of her own world while connecting with creative types around the globe.

The success of her blog led her to author the book, The Refashion Handbook: Refit, Redesign, Remake for Every Body. Beth says, "I get such a rush when I walk through the doors of a thrift shop. It's exhilarating just thinking about all the possibilities, the treasures and the deals!"

Wonderful upcycle class. This class takes the fear out of cutting and sewing sweaters and gives you confidence to create so many items. Very surprised how easy the projects are to complete. Thank you!

Fun class which provides inspiration for useful and pretty projects. The tote, to me, stands out as a very good and lovely idea. Instructions are easy and complete. Cheers

Very much enjoyed the class. I will watch it again. A lot of very useful information, also gave me a few ideas to try on my own. The teacher was very pleasant and went through each step carefully.

I love the concept of reinventing old clothing and items into something new and unique. The possibilities are endless. I reviewed the lesson list prior to purchasing the class and knew what to expect. I've watched the lessons and will re-watch while creating the items. The instructor, Beth, gave clear detailed easy to understand instructions which is much appreciated.
Thank you Beth and Annie's for this inspiring class.
