Denise Zipp educator at Corvallis Sewing and Vacuum

Denise came to us as the ScanNCut Expert and began teaching our SNC classes but we have found that her talents go far beyond that!  She also teaches our FTC-U Software classes as well as being our Dream Machine/Dream Club expert.  Denise has sewn all of her life and can answer any sewing question you may have.  Denise is always on a quest to learn and has become very familiar with all of our machines as well as the software that goes with them.  She has an incredible talent for listening, bakes the best cookies (attend her class & you will get to eat one) and is a true gem to work with. Denise currently owns a ScanNCut, The Dream Machine and a Miele vacuum.  These qualify her to help you with your machine questions and ultimate purchase.


A surprising fact about that Denise you may not know....she is an advocate for Senior Dog Rescue and owns 2-Senior Doxies.


Sign up for one of Denise's classes and you, too, can witness her fun, bubbly charm and personality!



Deanna Carpenter educator at Corvallis Sewing and Vacuum

Deanna learned to sew garments from her mom and had a knack for picking a new pattern and fabric on a Saturday morning and REALLY wanting to wear it for school on Monday.  Thanks to Mom, that wish came true often.  She learned to quilt from her mother in law and has created dozens of quilts since.  She’s the newest member of our team.  She sews on a Brother Dream Creator and is looking forward to sharing skills with and learning from the fantastic folks at Corvallis Sew and Vac.

An interesting fact you may not know about Deanna - she’s traveled to 18 countries while serving in the Navy for 22 years.  Thank you for your service, Deanna!
