Tereva K. Adams, owner of Adams Fashion Design Studio and founder and instructor of Woodlawn-Edmondson-Westview Recreation and Parks Council (EDRECO) Fashion Design/Sewing Center, enjoys teaching her students in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Tereva teaches her students clothing construction, draping, and pattern making. Her students are now designing wearable art, which affords the opportunity to be very creative. She also arranges trips for her students that are fashion- and sewing- related. Each year, Tereva has the opportunity to teach different age groups of students with different goals that all relate back to fashion and designing. Their "Sew and Tell" evening events allow Tereva's students to enjoy showing their outfits to family, friends, and co-workers. Tereva has also judged clothing in various competitions.
