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.

Students can expect a Systematic Approach to Sewing, what I fondly call the SASsy way. We will start with foundational topics like the Anatomy of the Sewing Machine, building on that foundation one skill at a time. I've learned that remaining motivated to sew often holds people back so I will also teach you how to plan out projects and how to build a sewing habit that helps you see consistent results and keeps you motivated to sew!

About Timpla
Hello! You want to learn to sew? I'm Timpla and I can help you!

FEEDBACK FROM MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

"It was great! I learned so much about my sewing machine."

"Had a great time Timpla! I was able to hem my daughter's skirt and repair a shirt sleeve. Looking forward to next time."

"I definitely benefited from the class! Thanks so much!!!"

I LOVE helping my students conquer their "fear" of the sewing machine, which unleashes excitement about their potential to sew unique items for themselves and others.

I've been sewing since I was a young girl, learning from my grandmother.

My experience includes sewing women's and girl's apparel, home decor, and quilts. I decided to start teaching private and group lessons after receiving many requests from friends and acquaintances.

I look forward to helping you develop the
skills you need to tackle any sewing project.

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.

I am re-learning after many years. Renee is very patient and very informative. She really understands my needs and lets me work at my own pace. She arrived on time and brought materials for me to practice on. I highly recommend Renee for beginners or people wanting to get back into sewing.

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.

WOW! All I can say is can you also babysit?? I have never seen my daughter so interested in a craft! You really brought a passion out in her and I am very appreciative. Brandi came to our house in Los Angeles to teach my daughter some of the basics for sewing (trying to find a hobby!) and she is already excited for the next class. Brandi really helped bring out a passion within her for this craft. While listening in (and trying a few things myself - haha) I saw how great of a teacher Brandi is and all I can say is THANK YOU and we’ll be scheduling again!
