ucted a Black History choir and several Christmas Plays. She has successfully taught students in the past who have become music teachers and music directors in a church or school setting. She has taught students from various backgrounds. Music is my passion because it is international communication. It ministers to my soul and spirit.

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.

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.

The perfect lesson for the ultimate beginner sewer! In these lessons we will go over the following:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- The sewing tools you'll need
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow pattern instructions
- How to sew different stitches and using the correct length
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Sew a zipper or an elastic waistband

We will also be working towards sewing a basic pattern, either a tote bag or PJ bottoms or whichever project the student brings in that is a beginner's level

A lesson plan will be sent to the student before their first lesson outlining the guidelines and key skills you will be learning each session. This is more of a guideline for lessons, as I will be assessing your learning speed and adjusting the lessons as I see fit for your best learning experience.

About Karla
Hello! My name is Karla and I love all things artsy and crafty. I learned to sew when I was 9 and have been improving my skills since then by taking classes or just trying things out on my own. I'm currently taking classes to get certified as a Pattern Maker, which is another passion of mine linked to the fashion industry. I've also spent the last year and a half building my Etsy shop for custom designed clothing for women and children. Since I also have my degree in Theater and Dance I enjoy being a freelance costume designer for dance or theater companies; creating custom designs for their shows.

I signed up for this lesson because I had gotten stuck in my sewing project. I liked that we were able to jump right in to addressing the issue (as opposed to me spending a lot of time digging through tutorials online which never seem to answer my questions). Karla was able to get me unstuck quickly, which allowed time for us to discuss additional tips on the construction of my garment.

Karla was extremely helpful. I liked that we didn’t have to use a set plan, but that she had lesson plans if I was interested. She could cater her teaching to specific questions I had or skills I wanted to learn. We used the camera to display what we meant and to assess my progress. Highly recommend!

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.

Hello . . . I have been sewing as a hobby for most of my life, and lately I've started teaching both children and adults, and I love it! It is awesome to see students' ideas come to life as they complete a project. If you've always wanted to learn to sew, now is your chance to learn in a relaxing and fun environment. The most important part is that you will learn to sew what you want -- whether it's clothing, household items, quilts, Girl Scout badge requirements, blankets for hospitals, or costumes for school plays! Have any questions? Send me a message and let's get started!

About Jean
I am a sewing teacher with many years of sewing experience. I have sewn my own clothing and for others, including babies, children and adults. I have created and sewn numerous quilts and household items which I have given out as gifts. My students have told me that I inspire them and most have bought sewing machines by the time we're done with the lessons! They continue on with projects of their own.

I like to keep learning and growing by taking advanced sewing lessons whenever there is something new I want to learn. This style of learning has inspired me to teach my students to be creative and to make exactly what interests them, to help them bring their ideas to life,

I teach in the Oxnard and Santa Clarita areas, but am mobile to many other areas of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. If you don't have a sewing machine, it
is not a problem as I have machines available. I teach students from age 8 years old to 80 years old, at whatever speed is comfortable for you. It's exciting at any age to learn a craft which has been around throughout history. I look forward to meeting with you and being the one to inspire you to sew!

During these lessons here are just some of the things you will learn:
* How to use a sewing machine
* How to select fabrics and patterns
* How to cut fabrics and prepare them for sewing
* How to assemble and sew your project!
* Use of various sewing tools and the importance of an iron
* Hemming and finishing techniques

Welcome to the world of sewing. Sewing is my passion and I have been teaching absolute beginners from zero to sewing a tunic of their very own size or any size they like in just 4 classes. My classes are structured to guide you through setting up your sewing machines to completely sewing. No need to follow any pattern, let's make you your boss and you can sew any size.
You can choose from the courses available or request me a custom course tailored just for your needs. I love to give private lessons too. Idea of sewing is joyful when you are sewing what you actually want to.
So what are you waiting for , let me know what you want to learn and I will compose a course just for you. Let's get sewing..

I'm a tailor and instructor. I started tailoring and people liked the details in my work. They showed their interest in sewing and I love to teach. I composed courses and help them understand each thing the way I wanted my self to be taught in detail. I have taught absolute beginners in just 3 weeks to sew their own tunics.
I graduated Bachelors in bausiness Administration and worked as an Accountant prior to teaching. Later I realized sewing is as important to me as breathing.
