She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

As an older person who never had ballet lesson, this could have been a very intimidating experience but Teresa was very patient and thoughtful about her instruction. She really wanted to be certain I understood the terms, technique and overall format of ballet. A great experience! I look forward to my next lesson!

I've been sewing my clothes since 13. I was supporting myself during my years in Art Institute by sewing for clients. After graduating I partnered with SBA Concern and my designs were produced commercially. In 1994 I got award for pachwork design from French magazine "Modes & Travauch". I can teach how to sew from table runner to coat and beyond.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I focus on Machine sewing. I don't like hand sewing so i avoid it; however, i do know several stitches and when they are preferable. I really enjoy creating the projects that we will make together step by step; however, if you find a pattern you like, i can walk you through how to do it!

I learned to sew as a child and have made many items; from skirts and pajama pants, and stuffed animals to quilted Christmas stalkings!

I tend to work in cotton materials, but have some tips and pointers for other fabrics as well!

I am not a fashion designer! I can follow a pattern, alter patterns, and even create simple patterns, and i can show you how to do the same. anything beyond that is beyond me!!

About Kat
Hi there!

My name is Kat and I'm really looking forward to learning something fun with you! I consider myself a wannabe Glass Artist. I am currently working on a dinosaur quilt- completely done out of fused glass screen printed with glass powders.

I did not study Education at school, but for nearly two years i taught glass fusing and basic sewing (ages 5-93) at a great art facility (no longer in business). I have been providing private lessons since September 2014.

I have a BA in Art History from CU Boulder and a Masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies from Newcastle University. I grew up sewing, learned to knit just over 10 years ago, and got into quilting about 4 years ago (when I got my own machine and could stop borrowing my moms.) My first experience with glass was 6 years ago and I've been hooked ever since!

I c
onsider myself a patient, fun, and encouraging instructor. I like to cater each lesson to your individual desires and ability while being fun and challenging. Sometimes you gotta go back to basics but i try to do so in a way that encourages and exemplifies growth.

I'm located in the South Denver Metro area. I will meet at several different libraries, your home, or online!!

I hope to work with you and help you reach your artistic goals, the grander the better!!

I went to Kari to get help with hidden stitches to make upholstery Seam repairs. She really helped me fix a lot of bad habits. I'll continue to work with her on leather seams as well. She is very professional as a teacher. She has a very good eye and can catch mistakes quickly. I was quite impressed with her artistic abilities. Kari has a really unique set of skills.

Kari taught my 12 year-old autistic son how to sew a pillow. It was a 6-week process but she was very calm and excited to share her skills. She did such a good job that I asked her to babysit him after the lessons were over. She taught classes after school at his Elementary school and the children always had a wonderful experience with beautiful projects to show.

Students can expect a Systematic Approach to Sewing, what I fondly call the SASsy way. We will start with foundational topics like the Anatomy of the Sewing Machine, building on that foundation one skill at a time. I've learned that remaining motivated to sew often holds people back so I will also teach you how to plan out projects and how to build a sewing habit that helps you see consistent results and keeps you motivated to sew!

About Timpla
Hello! You want to learn to sew? I'm Timpla and I can help you!

FEEDBACK FROM MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

"It was great! I learned so much about my sewing machine."

"Had a great time Timpla! I was able to hem my daughter's skirt and repair a shirt sleeve. Looking forward to next time."

"I definitely benefited from the class! Thanks so much!!!"

I LOVE helping my students conquer their "fear" of the sewing machine, which unleashes excitement about their potential to sew unique items for themselves and others.

I've been sewing since I was a young girl, learning from my grandmother.

My experience includes sewing women's and girl's apparel, home decor, and quilts. I decided to start teaching private and group lessons after receiving many requests from friends and acquaintances.

I look forward to helping you develop the
skills you need to tackle any sewing project.

Broomfield, CO

I have been sewing for 25 years (Since I was 7). I can teach you anything you want to know from basic beginner sewing to the most advanced techniques. I can also show you how to draft your own patterns (including children's and menswear).

How to use speciality machine feet to make sewing straight much easier.

I have both regular machines and sergers in my studio and can teach you how to sew both non-stretch and stretch fabrics.

About Anne
I am available to teach Sewing, Pattern Making and Fashion Design lessons from my home studio in Broomfield. I also teach French lessons.

I have been sewing since I was 7 years old and while I do know how to use a sewing pattern I prefer to make my own, I always have.

I just recently finished an associates degree in Pattern Making, Fashion Design, adding a lot of standard technique to my own methods. I can teach you anything from the simplest basics to how to sew stretch fabrics.

In Fashion Design I can teach you the basics of fashion drawing and show you how to translate those designs into patterns that you can sew together.

My goal as a teacher is to help you achieve your goals. I know that we all learn at a different pace.

Anne is a great sewing instructor. I was able to understand how to use a sewing machine and am more comfortable using one. The pillow case project I worked on was a fun project to do. The easiest way to learn how to sew is by doing it and practicing. It's definitely easier learning how to sew with the teacher next to you and answering your questions. I highly recommend Anne as a sewing instructor.

I've been teaching sewing and patternmaking for less than a year. However I found it very rewarding to see my students grow and eventually finish a project on their own without my help. After years working in fashion industry in NYC, I feel the desire to share and pass on my skills to the people who have great passion either in design or sewing but lack of the skills. I have verity of teaching material. It all depends on what you need and what you want to achieve.

About Vena
My name is Vena. I'm a fashion designer, tailor, sewer, enthusiastic craft lover. I had worked at major fashion brands in NYC for more than 7 years with a fashion design degree from Parsons. My specialty is in sewing, patternmaking, draping, tailoring and fitting. I have a great passion in teaching and extremely patient. I provide the best quality and hands on sewing skills that we use in the industry. If you would like to learn how to draft a pattern from scratch to make your own clothes or alter your clothes that fit you, I will show you how to achieve that. The courses will design and cater to your needs. I look forward to having a great sewing time with you.

Vena is a phenomenal teacher. She really ensures that you understand the concepts fully when teaching and doesn't rush through anything to fit it within a certain time frame. In our first day, she helped me learn the semantics of patternmaking and sewing and apply it visually to a dress form! For any beginner or someone who needs to solidify their foundation, Vena is a great instructor!

Had my first lesson today and Vena showed me many tips on how to lay out the pattern properly on the fabric and reviewed what the pattern symbols mean. I learned things I never knew and, as we went along, she gave me the reasons why things are done a certain way which is good so it'll make sense and I won't be as likely to forget them. I'm very happy and can't wait for Lesson 2.
