With Khouria Krista West

Khouria Krista West is an ecclesiastical tailor whose greatest passion is to bring more beauty into the world, and so she reads, writes and sews in the basement studio of her 1923 house. She occasionally leaves the studio to deliver lectures throughout the United States and loves inspiring others toward bringing more beauty into their lives. You can find her work online at kwvestments.com and avlea.life, and follow her on YouTube (search for “Krista West”) and Instagram (kristamwest).
