I teach beginner and intermediate sewing on and off the machine. I teach how to use your machine, pattern making, pattern creating, repair, alterations, and upcycling clothing.
Beginners have learned how to:
-Thread sewing machine properly
-Wind thread on a bobbin
-Sew a straight, curved and pivot corners for squares or zigzags
-Sew a French seam
-Attach a zipper and button on the machine
-Read a store bought pattern
-Create a simple basic pillow or article of clothing
Each student must be prepared for lessons with the following:
-Sewing machine with a zipper and button foot
-Sewing machine bobbins
-Thread (all purpose)
-Needles (Universal 90/14, 80/12, 70/10, 65/11)
-Fabric pins and pin cushion or magnet
I have been actively teaching sewing for the past 3 years. I am able to teach students anything from constructing a simple skirt all the way to draping and designing their own personal design. I believe that every student is different and has different methods that work better for them. I strive to take this into consideration with every student I teach.
I have been sewing since 2003. I can teach you how to load the bobbin, thread the needle, change the needle, how to change stitch width length and style. And much more
