Please see the Overview below for general information.

Learn basic hand and machine sewing skills and the nuts and bolts technical stuff of assembling your quilt top, tying your comforter and other hand finishing techniques.

Please note, I do not teach machine quilting or hand quilting involving stitching through many layers of fabric and padding.

I can recommend teachers who are better at color work and design.

About Kim

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 6 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. I charge by the hour, not by the person. You are ...

Kim is very patient and a great teacher. I didn't know how this online learning experience would work but it does work well. With my iPad I can see what she is doing and she can see me while I do it and gives constructive criticism while I work. Mistakes can be corrected promptly before bad habits set in. This has been a great learning experience for me. So glad I found me a good teacher!

Beginning Machine Quilting - I have been quilting for about 14 years and can teach all of the basics.

Needle turn Hand Applique and Karen Eckmeier's wall-hanging applique method -- I have been using Needle turn hand applique for about 10 years now and love it! I also use Karen Eckmeier's applique method for making wall hangings.

About Susan

I have been a quilter for 14 years now and have been doing freehand embroidery for over 40 years. My "day job" is working as an E-Learning Specialist and Trainer. I am available usually on the weekends for teaching and imparting my passion of quilting and embroidery. My quilting is all done on a home machine and is not fancy, but always looks nice!

I have over 5 years of experience as a fully credentialed 8th grade science teacher and over 10 years as a substitute teacher (in all grades and subjects, including special education classes). I hold a valid teaching credential with CSETs passed in math, biological/life science, and geo/Earth science. I resigned from my tenured job to be a stay-at-home mom. Kids (of all ages) are important, and I would like the opportunity to continue teaching others.

I love sewing. It is my greatest passions in life.

I sewed my first quilt without a pattern or a machine. I began making more and more quilts. Eventually, I graduated to mending items, and sewing dresses, skirts, and tops for my niece. I now am really enjoying paper piecing.

I would love to teach you how to sew! :)

Hi, I was wondering how old I have to be to take Aerial Tissue Skills or Aerial Hoop Lessons . I am 13 and in the 8th grade. If you do not teach people who are my age, could you please direct me to someone / some place who will. Thank You very much. :)

i focus on machine quilting. i will do just about anything to avoid hand sewing, but i do know several stitches and when to use them.

I understand patterns, how to change them, when not to change them, and how to make something easier!

Together, we can start at the beginning (how to use a sewing machine, what materials you need, etc) and work up to something amazing (queen sized bed cover perhaps!)

Personally, am notorious for making my own projects more complicated than necessary but that's because i find a pattern I like but want to alter it to my own specifications.

About Kat

Hi there!

My name is Kat and I'm really looking forward to learning something fun with you! I consider myself a wannabe Glass Artist. I am currently working on a dinosaur quilt- completely done out of fused glass screen printed with glass powders.

I did not study Education at school, but for nearly two years i have been teaching glass fusing and basic sewing (ages 5-93) at a great art facility (no longer in business). I have been providing private lessons since September 2014.

I have a BA in Art History from CU Boulder and a Masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies from Newcastle University. I grew up sewing, learned to knit just over 10 years ago, and got into quilting about 4 years ago (when I got my own machine and could stop borrowing my moms.) My first ...
