Baltimore has a fashionable heart, and Ella Pritsker's Maryland Academy of Couture Arts is at the center of it. MACA is the premier couture school in Maryland. An aspiring designer (or just someone who loves to sew) can start with the very basics of proper sewing techniques, while using proper tools. Never underestimate tools. They can propel you upward, making your work flow easier, or they can hold you back, making you break into fits of swearing, and buying into the false belief that the task is simply too hard.
At MACA, you work on industrial machines, at proper worktables, with good lighting and sharp scissors. Sewing is what it should be when you work like this: Simply a means to produce your art. Not a source of frustration.
Courses run the gamut from youth classes all the way up to advanced couturier. Take a class, and then show your work at the Annual Haute Couture Event. Sign up at http://marylandacademyofcouturearts.com/
