Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

Ready to move beyond the basic cross stitch? Let me coach you on specialty stitches such as satin, queen, eyelets, Rhodes, French knits and more. This will not be a machine embroidery class, every stitch will be by hand.
I've been cross stitching since 1983 and teaching it for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll learn how to organize your material for easier sewing, master basic stitches, and as time goes on you'll be able to tackle complicated stitches and designs. I specialize in counted cross stitch, but also have experience with redwork, drawnwork, Bargello, pulled thread, hardanger, and canvaswork. Typically, I use The Cross Stitcher's Bible by Jane Greenoff but can recommend other helpful resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Dawn was giving embroidery lessons to my 10 yr old daughter over summer. Every week, over the course of 8 weeks my daughter worked on a new project or new stitch. Dawn was very patient with her and my daughter enjoyed the lessons a lot. Dawn got her so much interested that she diligently finished her homework and was always looking forward to her next class.

If you have felt like youtube videos don't give you enough guidance in folding Origami, I would be delighted to take you step by step taking things at your pace and level as we explore the craft of Origami together.

I was born in Japan and origami was something that came naturally to me as a child. The love of Origami was passed down to me from my Japanese Grandmother who decorated her room with all of her paper creations.

It's been in my blood and comes as second nature to me however I know how complex some of these folds can be and my goal as a teacher is to help anyone be able to fold anything, while throwing in stories from Japan and Origami trivia!
