I came in a lizard. Yea, I had some experience, but I needed brushing up. Not only did she make strong eye contact, but with an intense 10 minute stare, she transmuted all her knowledge to me. I left her home, a Dragon.

Excellent job. I was able to knock out two small items in the two hours, after having not spent a single moment prior ever using a sewing machine.

I have taught in small groups and with individuals. I have even taught over the phone...before FaceTime. I can teach beginners that will help them with their confidence in learning this new skill. What sets me apart is my personality. I learned in an unusual way and I share that with my students. I have found sharing my path will show my students they can learn too.

About Carrie

I look forward to teaching you how to crochet. I love the art and have been sharing it with my family and friends for years. It’s a relaxing skill that makes up for a hard day sometimes. It’s also fun to. You will learn that there are patterns and then there’s inspiration. I can’t wait to meet you

This is perhaps my favorite subject to teach. There are such a variety of things you can do with the most basic of stitches, which students can then build upon depending on their interests. My goal for my students to walk away with a confidence in creating their own designs, with techniques tailored to their specific aesthetic goals.

*No machine embroidery.

Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!
Danielle
I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

"Anne is a great sewing instructor. I was able to understand how to use a sewing machine and am more comfortable using one. The pillow case project I worked on was a fun project to do. The easiest way to learn how to sew is by doing it and practicing. It's definitely easier learning how to sew with the teacher next to you and answering your questions. I highly recommend Anne as a sewing instructor."

"I Look forward to taking more lessons with Mya.

I took my sewing project —a tunic— with me and she explained clearly how to adjust the fit, which I’d been struggling with for a couple of weeks (and 3 muslins!). I left our one-hour session ready to conquer my tunic!

She is warm and friendly and is clearly not only an excellent sewist but also really good at teaching.

Thank you, Mya!"
