About Lauren
Hi there, I'm Lauren! I am a recent Berkeley graduate who completed a BA with honors in Classics and Art History. My greatest passions are sewing, English, and history. I first started sewing when I was thirteen and never stopped to look back! Since then I have sewn many types and styles of modern clothes. Additionally, I have extensive experience in historical fashions and historical sewing techniques! I've worked with all fabric types as well as drafting and flat patterning. My projects range from simple pillow cases to complicated Victorian corsets from scratch. With past projects featuring
embroidery, cross stitching, cording, and other decorative elements, I believe I can help you to better understand and explore the world of sewing!

I studied Classics and Art History in college and feel passionate about these topics, as well as English and literature. I worked on the editing board of several publications and would love to help you improve your writing, vocabulary, and grammar.

Please send me a quick message if you're interested in taking lessons to see if we can schedule the perfect lesson for you!!

Learning how to sew, and also some embroidery, I feel that Lauren makes it easy to learn, she is very knowledgable and patient. She is flexible on what you want to make and helps you to create it. It is fun to learn a practical and creative skill like sewing. I am so glad I am finally able to sew!

I was so impressed with Lauren! I am at a very beginning level and she made me feel very comfortable as we focused on the machine mechanics and threading the needle. I misplaced the power card so we went over my user guide and her reference sheet and she answered all my,questions. I am very excited for the next lesson.

I have taken one on one lessons from Milad for almost a year and I have mastered so many techniques that I never dreamed I would be able to do. Milad is very patient, has amazing skills, is a wonderful teacher, and has given me so much confidence in my jewelry making abilities. He has elevated my skills exponentially. Nothing compares to the experience of learning privately from a master metalsmith and jewelry designer. Milad's lessons are a bargain when you realize that you are learning how to make jewelry from a professional jeweler who will devote his full attention to you and make sure that what you make is exceptional. I can't recommend Milad enough.

About KIM
I am a fashion samplemaker, and a devoted sewing teacher! My greatest joy is seeing my students master new skills, empower themselves through crafting their own style, and applying their learning throughout their lives. I maintain a blog on Tumblr where you can see some current and past fashion samplemaking work (as released by the designer themselves) as well as video tutorials that I've made.

While I am patient, my enthusiasm is palpable during each lesson. Each lesson is designed for maximum student engagement using a show-not-tell approach. Sewing is a hands-on enterprise! So, I do my b
est to empower each student with each lesson.
