About Kim K.

Read my REVIEWS!! I specialize in working with beginners and teach foundation skills for using a sewing machine, following a pattern, handwork, and finishing.

I can help you make curtains, pillows, bags, aprons and other household items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern.

I have been sewing for over 30 years and was making my own clothes by the time I was in second grade. My lessons are not like reality TV. Projects take longer than you may think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project.

Please note, I do not teach pattern making, draping, and advanced tailoring. My experience with serger/marrow machines is limited.

Students are expected to provide all tools and materials but I will help you find what you need for your project.

Recommend duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes.

About Kim
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 textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. 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 fi
nd out why my students love me.

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 8 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.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

Kim has such an extensive background and is such a patient teacher! she is great at explaining the basics and getting you comfortable working thru patterns. I am so excited to see my progress as I continue lessons with her! She has reinvigorated my desire to knit/crochet and advance my skills! the only downside is having to do the lessons online from Florida! I wish I could take them in person with her!

About Kodjo A.

Close
Riverside, CA
View Full Profile

My expertise in sewing always inspires creativity and passion within students, and the ease with which i guide them to explore their own creativity bring fun to the lessons. Having over 25 years of custom couture tailoring and teaching has given me a vast experience in order for me to equip any student with the requisite knowledge needed to tackle any sewing project.

About Kodjo
Most people simply call me Joe. I have a bachelors in Fine Art, an MBA and been making clothes for my clients for over 25 years. I taught many people sewing and they've gone ahead to tackle various projects on their own to their own disbelief. Creativity comes to me naturally and with a background in figure drawing and painting, my knowledge of anatomy of the human figure helps a lot in translating it into designs for all figure types and sizes. I have handled many interior design projects also, so all these experiences equip me with immense knowledge to transfer to those who want to learn all about sewing, whether as a beginner, an intermediary or advanced student.

Experienced teacher of 20 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate/advanced sewing student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be sewing in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of stitches, techniques and understanding patterns for individual garments...and you may also choose to learn how to repurpose the clothes you already have to make them fresh again. Let's get started!

About Taryn
Taryn studied fashion design and art therapy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She worked for Anna Sui and milliner Tracy Watts.

Taryn first started teaching sewing to displaced youth at Hollywood Arts 10+ years ago. She taught "R'ashion" (recycle fashion/sewing) at Environmental Charter High School for 5 years. She headlines EcoFashion workshops all around the world including Zambia, South Africa, and recently at the Green School in Bali. Jack Johnson has donated leftover Tour T-shirts so she could do upcycling workshops at schools. And she's had the opportunity to teach celebrities how to sew at the EcoDivas Upcycling Lab at Sundance. (DJ Aoki was the most fun.)

She taught “Sustainability and the Fashion Industry” at FIDM for 7 years. She is the founder of Beyond the Label, a charitable organization that gets people

She encourages people to think of fabric like ingredients and does whatever she can to relate food to fashion including making nutrition label T-shirts to show what's actually in the tee. Due to multiple allergies, you can learn healthy alternatives of what to put in and on your body.

She is on the Advisory Board for Fashion Revolution USA, and the Fashion Department at Santa Monica College AND LOVES TO NERD OUT ABOUT SUSTAINABLE FASHION AND HEALTHY FABRICS.
