Now that I've been sewing for 6 years, I constantly wish someone would have taught me as a child. There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you have from making your own clothes or altering a garment that didn't fit or giving a gift to someone you know no one else has. To be able to give that to someone else is what I dream about. Whatever your motivation for learning how to sew, I'd love to be instrumental in teaching you! All ages and skill levels welcome!

About Amber

Hi! I'd love to be able to help you on your journey of sewing. It's such a magnificent skill to have and there's nothing like the joy of making something yourself. Even if the end result isn't what you imagined or "good", the process from start to finish is one of the most life-giving and rewarding

Amber is very sweet and polite. She also listens and makes sure she understands what my expectation is. Besides my background of sewing, I also have limited English efficiency that I worry a little. Thank you so much for being kind and patient to me Amber. ❤️

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

I have been coaching chess for many years. What makes chess lessons unique with me is that I make the chess lessons exciting, fun to learn, I point out mistakes/weaknesses in a very kind way, I give good examples of moves/positions relate to real life, I teach people the psychology of playing chess, and I improve people's game through love and repetition. I teach several opening variations as well as middle-game and end-game tactics. But I focus on what people's weaknesses are and I make those weaknesses their greatest strength.

Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair?
