The perfect lesson for the ultimate beginner sewer! In these lessons we will go over the following:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- The sewing tools you'll need
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow pattern instructions
- How to sew different stitches and using the correct length
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Sew a zipper or an elastic waistband

We will also be working towards sewing a basic pattern, either a tote bag or PJ bottoms or whichever project the student brings in that is a beginner's level

A lesson plan will be sent to the student before their first lesson outlining the guidelines and key skills you will be learning each session. This is more of a guideline for lessons, as I will be assessing your learning speed and adjusting the lessons as I see fit for your best learning experience.

About Karla
Hello! My name is Karla and I love all things artsy and crafty. I learned to sew when I was 9 and have been improving my skills since then by taking classes or just trying things out on my own. Since I also have my degree in Theater and Dance I enjoy being a freelance costume designer for dance or theater companies; creating custom designs for their shows. I currently spend my free time creating products for my children's clothing line Karli Q Designs.

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 love to sew! and have great joy in teaching the craft. I have been sewing since I was 7 years old, taught by my Grandmother.  A FIDM alumni, I worked in the garment industry designing jr. dresses and as a pattern maker, as well as a costume stylist for 14 years in film‚ television, and commercials.
Discovering the joy of sharing my love of sewing and years of experience, I started teaching children and adults. I enjoy the process of teaching and helping students explore their creative 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.

Note: Although students learn at different rates, the above results are expected, if taking lessons 2hours a week, for 5weeks for all levels.

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.
