"Christine’s skills reflect that of a master of fashion design, pattern making, and garment construction.  Each of her garments shows excellent craftsmanship and creativity."

"Christine is a wonderful and amazing teacher. She is patient, thorough, and has the easiest and most straight-forward approach to patterns while still being able to perfect the details. She has clarified complex designs and I love how she explains pattern making step-by-step, making the process easy to follow along. She is also fun and inspiring to be around with! I truly enjoy the time we spend together. I have learned so much from her and cannot recommend her enough!

"I’ve known Christine Groom for a number of years; and in those years she’s always shown an authentic form of integrity, strength, kindness and support. She is someone I trust, someone who I know puts 110% into every commitment she makes.  She is a friend and a business woman who follows through with authentic interest and professionalism. I’ve worked with her on a few different levels and this is standard in every area of her life. I’ve witnessed her work, her art, first hand and know she will always take care of her clients by giving them the best care possible with the utmost amazing talent in her craft. Any client of hers is in the best of hands. She’s above and beyond in all areas of her life."

"I’ve often admired Christine’s fashion sense and on many occasions complimented her on her stylish office attire. She simply has a sheer, raw imaginative talent, much like that of an artist with a blank canvas. Not only does she have a flair for fashion, but, she possesses an artful ability to combine garments, reimagining them, creating new and trendy, haute couture looks. She sees textiles in a different light, seamlessly blending styles together composing trendy and original one of a kind fashions. Recently I sought her services on a few refashion items I wasn’t particularly thrilled with, one of which was a dress I was planning on wearing to a wedding. She cut the top off of my dress, turning into a beautiful and very wearable skirt that I have used time and again since then.  Aside from being undeniably talented, she is also sweet and kind. She truly cares about what she creates and how you will look wearing them."

"I found a sweater dress that I had to have while searching the internet for current Fall fashion. I was unable to find the manufacturer so I contacted Christine to ask if she would design a similar dress for me. After sharing the image with her and discussing fabrications and notions, she took a set of measurements and then my dream dress was in the works. Christine was able to replicate the dress perfectly. Her knowledge of fabric and clothing construction is evident in the finished product, not to mention her keen eye for attention to detail.  I love my ZigZag dress, it is my "go to" outfit for those work days that are immediately followed by social events. I'm looking forward to keeping up with what she is working on."
