Bgcheck Background Checked


I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

About Kathleen

I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself. Now I have

Anne-Louise explained everything I wanted to learn. Prior to the class I stated what topics I would like to cover and she did just that. she used examples and drawings to make my understanding much vivid. I look forward to having more classes with her.

Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.

Whether you want to understand how to read your own chart or learn to read the charts of others, with 25 + years of experience, I can teach you the language of astrology, providing a set of tools for enriching your life and connecting with Spirit. The more we know ourselves, the freer we become as individuals. Our deepest soul complexes always impede our vision, however, the study of astrology allows insight and understanding of the universe and of ourselves.

About Ainslie

I am an intuitive, Jungian-based astrologer. A life-long yoga practitioner, I presently run a yoga nonprofit. Daily meditation is essential to me. I had my astrology chart done on a whim in the early 90's and immediately became enthralled with the art. I began my daily blog, featuring Street Ar

Ainslie is equally patient and dynamic in her teaching style. Moreover, the breathe of her astrology knowledge is unparalleled, and she effortlessly imparts a thorough knowledge of the subject in terms that are clear and concise. After my own lessons, I would enthusiastically recommend Ainslie to any student interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of astrology.

Antonia
Ainslie has given me two astrology readings.. both of which have given me a deeper understanding of astrology and myself. She is meticulous with her work and very patient while explaining all the information she gives, you can clearly see this in her weekly blogs. What I loved most about Ainslie readings is that you really feel how passionate she is about Astrology and this makes the experience so much more meaningful and fun! Thank you Ainslie!

"So fun and easy! Mya taught me all of the basics and let me practice simple skills to get me started. I brought my own machine but she provided sample fabric to practice on. Lots of hands-on doing. She also has a nice folder with everything you you cover in the lesson so you can remember when you get home. Definitely going back."

"Our teen aged daughter received billiard instructions from her uncle as a Christmas Gift. We decided to make it a family event, and the three of us met George at Status Billiards.

I was curious to see how he would handle billiard instruction with a younger person. Confidence building is important when teaching kids and George did a great job of helping our daughter understand and strategically play the game in a way that was neither patronizing nor demoralizing. He led by example; he was patient, kind, engaged and was having fun. This set the tone for a great experience for our daughter and the whole family. We're going to encourage she practice on weekends and intend to incorporate billiards into our "time with family"."
