Excellent, she is fantastic. She works very well with my 8 yo son.
I was very impressed when I came home and saw the bag my son had made under her guidance. She also helped to figure out what was wrong with our sewing machine and got it working right away.

I have been sewing for over 30 years and teaching for over 12 years. I am a Fashion Design graduate (FIDM).

I can help you understand what is Fashion Design, from concept to production. The lessons will cover how the fashion industry works, how to understand the market, your target customer, and the price point you want to design for.

We will look at the design process, from gathering inspirations, sketching, and editing the line, to the choice of fabrics, trims, and notions.

We will also cover how to find a manufacturer for your line, using contractors, and finding a sales representative, or a showroom to sell your line.

The lessons can also include:

-Sewing (hand sewing and machine sewing, overlock)
-Pattern making/altering
-Draping
-Fashion Illustration (drawing the figure)
-Illustration on the computer with Illustrator and Photoshop
-Building a Portfolio
-Illustrator for screen printing

The lessons are customized to your needs. I will only cover the ...

Marie is great explaining any sewing questions that one may have. She takes her time to ensure that the student understands and will answer any questions. I selected her because of her background and I knew she would be a great instructor for me. She understands my idea and is willing to see that I accomplish my goal.

Experienced fashion designer of 6 years available to teach eager students of all experience, levels and ages! I adjust and build my lesson structure so students learn what they are interested in and want to learn, while building strong foundations of basic sketching concepts to sourcing materials, technical specs, and realization. I specialize in women's clothes but can easily teach you men's wear, children's wear and accessory design.

I have been designing my own clothes for almost as long as I can remember. My personal preference is classic/retro/avant garde. I can help you find your own voice as a designer.

If you need to work on one area such as use of color, fashion drawing (not as hard as it sounds), pattern making etc. Or if you are just beginning. I start where you need me to.

Anne is an excellent instructor. She gave my daughter beginner sewing lessons and gave instructions that a 12 year old can understand. My daughter enjoyed the lessons and is excited to take more lessons and learn new techniques.
