Private Sewing Teacher

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 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!
Amy
Maria is a talented designer whose products show quality craftsmanship and thoughtful attention to detail. She is a calm and patient presence when teaching, even amidst a group of chaotic pre-teen girls as my daughters can attest! Maria makes quality choices with her fabrics and materials, making sure they are both beautiful and non-harmful to nature. You will love working with her!

"Donna is a great sewing teacher! She worked with my 11-year-old and was patient, clear, and engaging. Being 11, my daughter was underprepared, but Donna had a project lined up for her. Donna taught skills she hadn’t learned or mastered like zippers, buttons, ironing, and fabric choice.

I highly recommend Donna. And will be taking lessons from her myself!"

"I contacted Mya in the beginning of January because I was in the process of applying to fashion school and needed help and guidance constructing my design ideas. After I showed her my patterns, fabrics, and sketches, she confidently reassured me that everything would be okay. I came to Mya's home studio three-to-four days a week for three weeks. And during each lesson, she was incredibly patient in explaining sewing terminology, demonstrating techniques, and making suggestions on how to improve my designs. She was so knowledgeable that, at times, I felt like I was taking a college level sewing class. Seriously, I LEARNED SO MUCH! Moreover, Mya was sweet, funny, and incredibly hospitable. One evening, when I arrived to her house with pants wet from snow (because I had spent 1.5 hours digging my car out of my parking space), she gave me temporary clothes to wear while mine dried in front of her heater! No matter when I showed up, she always greeted with a big smile. I truly felt welcomed and accepted in her presence. And, even better, I finished my sewing projects nearly a week before my application deadline!!! THANK YOU, MYA :-D"
