Meet Our Alumni

An alum of the Eliot School children’s sewing class, Takeiya Perry is a practicing fashion designer, showing her collections in Boston Fashion Week and local galleries.

Her children now take sewing classes at the Eliot School with Carol Price.

Over 20 years ago Takeiya was able to receive the same basic sewing instruction that allowed her to discover who she is—to become the emerging fashion designer she is today. Her early connection with craftsmanship empowered her to dream, to take a chance; today her children have the same opportunity.
