I have been embroidering since I was six years old. It is my favorite needle craft and I love teaching it to others.

Some people refer to what I do as the "dying art." That makes me sad, I don't want to see this art fade away. We will begin with some basic stitches and learn how to transfer designs onto fabric. We will go over different tools that can be used to assist you in becoming an accomplished artist.

For the more advanced student, I will teach different types of embroidery and applique work. Applique work is solid embroidery that can be three dimensional.

Love Tina! Took some lessons to improve my ability to project my voice. Only thing I would add is maybe an air purifier in the lesson room for ventilation. Thank you very much!

Tina is amazing. So skilled, knowledgeable and patient. My daughter was nervous about the lessons and she had her call her personally so she could speak with her. I am so happy to have her teaching my daughter.

Do you have trouble getting your French knots to come out perfect? Do you want to know what a French knot is? Do you want to jazz up your clothing or home decorating with some embellishments? Are you looking for a project to work on during your commute? Do you have a vintage piece you would like to repair or restore? Have you see cool and inspiring projects on Pinterest? I can help you make anything you set your mind to.

I am familiar with almost every type of embroidery and the tools and materials to will help you create the effect you desire.

Please note, I have little experience with computerized embroidery machines.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

Kim was recommended by a friend and I can see why. She was punctual, easy to communicate with even via email during the class with my many questions and very friendly. She gave my 8y old a sewing lessons and gave her (and me) many tips. She was very knowledgeable, clear, easy to follow and was even entertaining! My daughter learned a great deal andorrnimportantly acquired a lot of ease and confidence. We will use her again and I recommend her to anyone.

Dovile was great! She arrived on time. I wanted to brush up on my skills on how to make a pattern from an old dress. She is an excellent instructor. She explained things very well. By the end of the 2 hours I had a made a pattern and cut it out. I felt we accomplished a lot without rushing. It was definitely a 5-star experience.

This is perhaps my favorite subject to teach. There are such a variety of things you can do with the most basic of stitches, which students can then build upon depending on their interests. My goal for my students to walk away with a confidence in creating their own designs, with techniques tailored to their specific aesthetic goals.

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

I loved my class with Rhiannon. I was a little unsure about how an embroidery class would truly work online. However, my class was clear, enjoyable and I particularly liked how Rhiannon showed me how each stitch I learned today, can be used to create specific effects. She used her own embroidery projects to illustrate this for me.
I can't wait for my next class!

Stella as my first tutor on takelessons. She is not only an incredibly accomplished crafter and artist, she is a patient and knowledgeable teacher too. She really went the extra mile and I feel much more confident using my serger now. I will definitely be booking her again!

Stacy was amazing and extremely knowledgeable in our lesson! She asked for my machine type before our lesson and came in with notes as she hadn't worked specifically on the serger machine that I owned. She showed up with notes and took charge with NO issues at all - she is definitely a professional! I highly recommend her if you're looking for someone to help you learn your way around the sewing machine or serger, from beginner to advance, I gathered she really knows her stuff! She doesn't try to rush you through and she allows and wants you to be very hands on. Very patient. I would definitely recommend her!
