SEW MUCH MORE THAN JUST SEWING!
Please allow me to tell you just a little bit about myself before we physically meet. Sew Fabulous Studio & Academy is a direct result of my lifelong love for fashion, interior design, and people. I enjoy designing and creating beautiful, unique things. I developed my passion for fashion as a little girl. My father worked for a furniture company here in Fort Smith, and I learned to reupholster furniture from him when I was only 8 years old. My grandmother, mother and great aunts would also share their talents with me as a little girl and they taught me how to sew and design. These ladies also taught me how to carry myself, and their lessons in etiquette gave me essential, lifelong skills for engaging with people from all ages and walks of life. I took my love of these wonderful skills and gained degrees in Fashion and Interior Design, and Marketing and Business Communications. I have used my learning and degrees in my work for over 25 years. I also love public motivational speaking and have a true passion for encouraging others.
In the course of my career, I have worked in marketing and an executive marketing director for major companies. I’ve had the beautiful privilege of speaking and training for many companies and organizations traveling in and out of the country. After returning to Fort Smith I started my own tailored fashion business, HeLana’s Hats & Fashions by JoAnna, Sew Fabulous Studio & Academy and She Believed She Could SEW She Did Impact Program because I believe it is important to give back and serve your community for we are blessed to be a blessing.
I love my family and my furry babies with my whole heart and if you couldn't tell I am a Glam Girl :)
bring on the makeup, fashion and fun!
I praise God i'm cancer free and I'm sew blessed to live my dream. I've poured my heart into preparing and building my Sew Fabulous Studio & Academy. I can’t wait to meet you and get to know you as we go on this amazing journey of sewing and creating together.
