Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

About LILY
I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For six years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

Hi all, I'm an experienced sewer with a degree in Textiles and Design! I've been sewing and teaching for over 20 years and love what I do.
Because I've worked with children and created lesson plans I know exactly how to teach with clarity and work according to the needs of my students.

About Adenike
Hello,

My name is Adenike, you can call me Adé. I'm a trained fashion stylist and designer with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Rhode Island.

I have taught sewing and design, to people of all ages, genders, and abilities throughout my professional career. It began in 2002 when I decided to work with the Americorps, Teach America program. There I created and executed a lesson plan that taught students how to sketch, render, sew, read patterns and adjusts garments for personal to suit their personal needs. The program incorporated science, math, and history so that they had a practical and anthropological approach to fashion design. It was great, and I discovered that one of my other joys in life is teaching.

Most recently, I've worked with Hobby Quest, where I teach children in an after schoo
l setting. Hobby Quest requires an extensive background check because of that fact that work is done with students on school grounds. I can supply references that will attest to my professionalism and easy going nature.

It's recommended that you schedule for a minimum of 60 minutes to get the most out of your lesson.

*IMPORTANT* Potential students interested in working on projects will be asked for project details and current sewing ability.
If a student is a beginner sewer, then he or she will be required to have a complete command of fundamental sewing as well as basic machine knowledge before introduction of project. There will be no exception to that rule.

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

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..

About Faiza
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 with a Bachelors in Business Administration and worked as an Accountant prior to teaching. Later I realized sewing is as important to me as breathing. I help students build confidence in sewing. I love the feeling when students are able to complete their courses and practically apply their knowledge.
