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.

Tina gives very clear, precise instruction with modeling and practice. She lets you know what your goals are and how you are going to work toward them, and follows up the lesson with a written recap of everything you went over. The only thing that I am sorry about is that I did not record everything we practiced. She was more than happy to let me record whatever I needed, but I only recorded one thing and I already forgot the other two things! Anyway, I am happy with the instruction. :)

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!

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.

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!

Mya is very patient with novice learners. Both my 12 year old daughter and I have attended class and we both walk away learning new things each time!

Mya has also been very accommodating with my schedule, allowing me the flexibility to adjust my lesson time on several occasions. She has a dedicated space to give lessons that is open and welcoming!

I definitely recommend Mya. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

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!
