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. I have a lot of experience 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 welcome to share your lessons with others to divide the cost. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to find out why my students love me.
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of physical media.

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 CSESts 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.
