I have been sewing for over 30 years and teaching for over 13 years. I am a Fashion Design graduate (FIDM) and can teach sewing, sewing machine care and basics, fabric cutting, using a pattern, pattern alterations, or pattern drafting, and draping.

I can also teach how to choose the proper fabric for your projects, and the different finishing techniques for hems.

I can customize the class to your needs and interests. I can teach you the making of garments, costumes, or home decoration items, or garment alterations.

It's up to you! I can't wait to teach you how to be proficient with your machine, and hand sewing.

About Marie
I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator.

My other passion is Fashion Design. I am a Fashion Design graduate from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I studied Fashion so I could make my own patterns. I have been sewing for over 30 years and just love creating clothing or costumes for my children and I, with commercial patterns or my own patterns. I am pretty crafty, really good at modifying patterns, and I have a grea
t knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.

I really enjoy teaching, and after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more hands-on, and I have been enjoying teaching sewing and fashion design. It is rewarding to pass on a skill that used to be taught from generation to generation, but that less and less people are learning nowadays.

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

I went to Kari to get help with hidden stitches to make upholstery Seam repairs. She really helped me fix a lot of bad habits. I'll continue to work with her on leather seams as well. She is very professional as a teacher. She has a very good eye and can catch mistakes quickly. I was quite impressed with her artistic abilities. Kari has a really unique set of skills.

Kari taught my 12 year-old autistic son how to sew a pillow. It was a 6-week process but she was very calm and excited to share her skills. She did such a good job that I asked her to babysit him after the lessons were over. She taught classes after school at his Elementary school and the children always had a wonderful experience with beautiful projects to show.

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.

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.

About Renee
I grew up in Los Angeles surrounded by a family of artists and designers. Following my career in fashion and costume design, I began making one of a kind silver jewelry. I have been working with fine silver for 8 years, selling my design pieces in art galleries and online.
I have always tried to share my passion for all things artistic with my two children. By volunteering to run art projects at their school, I discovered the joy of teaching. I decided to combine that with my sewing expertise to help children and adults realize their creative vision. I like helping students explore their ideas while making a project come to life on the sewing machine.

Sewing Machine, check! Material, check! I can help you bring the two together with knowledge and care as your sewing instructor. Whether you have a specific project in mind that you'd like help with, or maybe you just need some help getting back into sewing, each class is tailored to make the skills you have shine, while you absorb new ones.

About KIM
I am a fashion samplemaker, and a devoted sewing teacher! My greatest joy is seeing my students master new skills, empower themselves through crafting their own style, and applying their learning throughout their lives. I maintain a blog on Tumblr where you can see some current and past fashion samplemaking work (as released by the designer themselves) as well as video tutorials that I've made.

While I am patient, my enthusiasm is palpable during each lesson. Each lesson is designed for maximum student engagement using a show-not-tell approach. Sewing is a hands-on enterprise! So, I do my best to empower each student with each lesson.

Kim is super knowledgeable and great at connecting tools, skills and goals. I have learned a lot more already in one lesson than I would have expected, all of it relevant to what I want to be able to sew for myself on my machine. Thank you, Kim! Looking forward to my next lesson :)

I found Kim after looking for someone to make me some custom athletic tank tops for the gym. After meeting her, I chose to learn how to sew instead, because she did a good job of making sewing make sense to me. To say I felt awkward my first time in a sewing store as a 6'6" bodybuilder the understatement of my life.

She took me from knowing nothing at all about sewing to being able to make my own work-out tops. Then she taught me how to make work shirts, and soon together we will start making my first pair of pants. (If you're as tall as I am, you know this is a very big deal.)

Friends and coworkers, for the first time, they're seeing me in clothes that fit my arms and shoulders properly and they ask where I got them. I feel really good about that, and I don't have rashes under my armpits from too-tight "XL" shirts.

If she can get my burly dopey butt to learn to sew, she can teach anyone.

She also has a stocked sewing studio. Most lessons I go there to learn, but I've also had her visit my place. I prefer to go there, if you need a button or fabric, she probably has it, and will let you buy muslin from her instead of taking a special trip to the Garment District to get it.

I met Tuesday at the fabric store. I gave her a photo and we picked out fabric. After my dress and vest was made... We were "the couple" of the night. I changed my design 3 times and she was patient and caring and I stopped the whole show because of her. My dress was much prettier than the original photo I had given her.
