I am a fashion and accessories designer living in Oakland, CA. My company has been in business for 8 years.

I am a trained patternmaker; I graduated from the Louise Salinger Academy of Fashion with an associate degree in pattern making in 1997.

I have worked in the fashion industry since then. Vintage clothing is my obsession and I love to be able to design and sew clothing.
I have taught intensive sewing camps to girls and found it so rewarding.

I would love to share my skills and knowledge to budding fashion designers, crafters, and to those who want to learn how to sew!

Maria was so helpful! She was able to teach me the basics of my sewing machine even though she had not used that type before. I could tell just by talking to her how knowledgeable and passionate she is about her craft. I plan to definitely have more lessons with her in the future. Thanks again! :)
Courtney
Maria is a fantastic pattern maker and sewing teacher! She was able to make a pattern out of my existing garment without taking it apart and walked me through all the steps of re-creating the item. Not only is she very knowledgable, she is also a great teacher and was able to explain things to me so I could retain them and practice on my own. I was completely new to sewing and she patiently answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable with the different stitches. She also taught me how to setup and use my new sewing machine! Maria is a very down to earth and easy going person; it was really fun chatting during our lessons. I will definitely be back for more lessons!
Julia
Maria was a very thoughtful and thorough instructor. I would definitely take another class with her!

You know there's a jewelry artist inside of you. As a kid, you made daisy chain necklaces using handpicked flowers. In middle school, you made friendship bracelets -- neon, of course -- for all of your friends. Jewelry making was super easy back then! A little imagination, a couple of knots, and …voila! As an adult, you still find yourself longing to create your own wearable gems, but you need help navigating the world of tools, supplies and techniques.

In this class, I'll take you from amateur to artist. You'll learn the basics, build and organize the perfect starter kit, experiment with common repair techniques, and, by the end of the class, leave sporting your very own statement necklace. Bye bye expensive boutique jewelry, hello DIY! 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.

I have always had a passion for Fashion. Born in Miami and raised in Texas, this Fashionista began her sewing journey at the age of twelve receiving lessons and sewing tips from my mother. From there I started making my own clothing and began wearing my fashions to school which led t me sewing and designing clothing for my fellow school mates as well. Word began to travel that there was a young new designer in the community, so my clientele and skill level began to grow. In 2004 I officially incorporated Random Star Couture a custom clothing brand which caters to Men, Women, Children, and Home Decor. As years progressed I became a professional Sewing Instructor for JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts along with teaching private clients. I also branched out into wardrobe styling and costuming. Which gave me even more access in the Fashion industry allowing me the opportunities to have worked with such clients/ companies as Roca Wear (Clothing Brand), Aeropostle, Lil' Wayne (Six Foot Seven Foot- ...

Lia was an AMAZING meditation teacher! She was calm, patient and very 'Zen' for our entire lesson, which really helped me to relax and calm down myself. Her instructions were easy to follow and I was able to achieve a deep level of relaxation normally absent from my meditations! Using the skills and techniques I learned from Lia, I now have a much easier time getting into 'the zone' every time I sit down to meditate :) thanks Lia!

Really enjoyed my meditation lessons! I highly recommend.
