I've been sewing my clothes since 13. I was supporting myself during my years in Art Institute by sewing for clients. After graduating I partnered with SBA Concern and my designs were produced commercially. In 1994 I got award for pachwork design from French magazine "Modes & Travauch". I can teach how to sew from table runner to coat and beyond.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

About Jannette
Hello! I am Jannette from Los Angeles, CA. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design from The Art Institute. I've been a Freelance Designer for about 5 years now and sewing for 10 years.

I love to sew and greatly enjoy teaching the craft. I have been sewing since I was 7 years old, when I was taught by my Grandmother. A FIDM Fashion Design graduate, I worked in the garment industry as a pattern maker and junior dress designer. I then went on to work for 14 years in the Motion Picture industry in costume design and stylist work.

I enjoy working with children, guiding them to use their creativity in the process of sewing. Lessons can be tailored to the students needs, from learning how to use the sewing machine to the best way to approach sewing different fabrics and patterns. From fashion to interior design, I am happy to guide you to a finished product.

Hi! So just a little background. My mother was my teacher at a young age with the basics of sewing by hand with a needle and thread. And then went on to teach me the sewing machine and I haven’t looked back since. I love making zipper pouches, little stuffed dinosaur tails for children and pretty much anything I see around that I like. My latest project was a robe for Halloween which was a wizard robe.

I would love to teach you the basics first like how to use your sewing machine and patch work by hand. Then we can work on a pillow and maybe even some rice heating packs. After that you can choose a pattern to make. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Lydia
Hey everyone! I am a creator of many things, mostly fiber arts. I can knit, sew, embroidery, felt. I have been knitting for close to 20 years. I started when I was a child and never really stopped.

I started a fiber arts business with my dad that became very successful and has keep steady customers. The bulk of the business was knitted products, felting, and dyed products.

I would love to help my students build their skills and be able to make that project they have always wanted to try. We will start from the basics and build from there. I hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day!
