Jannette is a true professional! She's very hands on and patient. In every sitting I learned something new. Her effortless skill and thorough knowledge of her craft assured me that I'd chosen the perfect person to tutor me. If I ever need any pointers in the future I would use Jannette without hesitation. I highly recommend.

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.

Sylvia was an excellent teacher. She was forthcoming and shared any resources that she had and explained the topics spoken about very well. She has experience with producing garments and can teach the steps beautifully.

I loved this lesson with Silvia. As an experienced fashion designer she could introduce me into certain steps that are required to produce my own clothes. This was very interesting and helpful. Thx a lot!

I met Tuesday at the fabric store. I gave her a photo and we picked out fabric. After my dress and vest was made... We were "the couple" of the night. I changed my design 3 times and she was patient and caring and I stopped the whole show because of her. My dress was much prettier than the original photo I had given her.

WOW! All I can say is can you also babysit?? I have never seen my daughter so interested in a craft! You really brought a passion out in her and I am very appreciative. Brandi came to our house in Los Angeles to teach my daughter some of the basics for sewing (trying to find a hobby!) and she is already excited for the next class. Brandi really helped bring out a passion within her for this craft. While listening in (and trying a few things myself - haha) I saw how great of a teacher Brandi is and all I can say is THANK YOU and we’ll be scheduling again!
