I have been a professional costume designer since 2003 and have sewn everything from everyday apparel to sci-fi outfits to full-body monster costumes. I can teach you basic skills in a step-by-step curriculum fashion or I can help you create a specific project that you have in mind. Do you want something special for an event or do you want to make something out of some fun fabric you found? I am very flexible and enjoy being creative, so bring me your challenge and I will help you give it life!

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!

From learning to cast on and work a knit stitch to understanding techniques like brioche, cables or mosaic, I believe knitting should be fun and enjoyable - not stressful - and is attainable by all!

About Jen

I started sewing when I was in middle school and still have a few of my first projects. I enjoy teaching new skills to everyone and love when my students "figure it out."

Learn crochet basics including chain stitch, single and double crochet. I can teach you to make a hat, scarf, shawl, simple sweater, etc.

About Diane

***Online lessons only until the pandemic is over*** My journey in music began when I was around 5 years old and first heard the children's choir sing in church. My mother used to tell me that I would beg her to let me sing in the choir but she would always have to tell me I wasn't old enough.

Diane was an excellent instructor and I enjoyed her professionalism and patience with my daughter. unfortunately my daughter became dis- interested due to a need for " a personal touch" that only in home or studio practices could provide.

"Lily is a great instructor. She knows her craft well. She is patient, friendly and has a great smile and laugh that helps makes her student comfortable and at ease thus making learning fun. Lily has the knowledge to help anyone with sewing, embroidery, machine embroidery and more. I highly recommend Lily as an instructor for whatever area you are trying to learn from her huge arsenal of expert techniques.

Lily is helping me to become proficient using my embroidery machine. She immediately taught me a few tricks to getting my machine to do what it is suppose to do without much effort. She has in one lesson given me tons of information and help to get my embroidery hobby started properly. It's awesome to have one on one assistance right in my home so I don't have to take my heavy machine anywhere.

I'm disabled and having a service like this one available is invaluable. I have to keep my mind working and busy, and this helps me tremendously. Thank you LILY and TakeLessons for helping me to fulfill my goals!"

"Lily is an exceptional teacher. She is very passionate detailed, organized, and caring. I am a person that needs a lot of detail and ask a lot of questions and Lily was so paitent with me. Before meeting Lily I felt unsure of my abilities to sew, but with Lily's guidance on how she structures her lesson I was able to grasp what I was learning. I definitely will be registering with Lily for more courses she's Awesome!"

"Matthew is very knowledgeable of the game. He is easily approachable and has the ability to connect with students of all skill levels as well as multiple generations. My teenage son was comfortable with him immediately and he is not always receptive to learning if the setting feels awkward to him. As for my own experience I received valuable insight into my own games after reviewing score sheets from tournament games and isolating those ever present blunders that seem to lurking on every chess board just waiting to be discovered. Anyway I give a hearty two thumbs up to my millennial friend."

"I've had the pleasure to take quite a few lessons with Dan & I do not regret any of them. From the first time we've met at the pool hall he gave me a few simple tips & I saw a dramatic increase in my game. He has worked together amongst the pros & also has many years involved in the world of billiards. Everytime I meet with him I learn something new and bring back home some new techniques to practice which are vital to the game. He has taught me the basic fundamentals & stroke mechanics in which I had struggled with. He provides great feedback & is overall one of the best around with tons of experience. Any time I have questions or concerns I can reach out to him with no problem. Dan always delievers! It is always a pleasure working with Dan, he is very flexible, great on communication, reasonable & has the patience to teach to anyone! If you want to improve your game or have a general interest in pocket billiards / pool Daniel is your guy to reach out to. I am one of his current student's & he has not failed me. Dan always has a great demeanour & is full of knowledge on & off the table. Call or email him now you won't regret it."
