Learn basic hand and machine sewing skills and the nuts and bolts technical stuff of assembling your quilt top, tying your comforter and other hand finishing techniques.

Please note, I do not teach machine quilting or hand quilting involving stitching through many layers of fabric and padding.

I can recommend teachers who are better at color work and design.

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.

Just had my first crocheting lesson with the fabulous Kim Kotary! She is an awesome instructor. I was very relaxed , and enjoyed what I was doing. She has a gift of knowledge. And I can't wait to have my next lesson with her. Thank you for having such a great instructor and a perfect match for my crocheting lessons 😊~Maggie

Kim was terrific! It was great to go through the basics and actually have someone watch what I was doing. Now I'm not HOPING I'm doing it correctly, i KNOW I'm doing it correctly She's very good with the step-by-step verbals and visuals, and moves at a comfortable pace. Also, I learned a bunch of cool little tips from her. Added bonus: she's a super nice and interesting person; turns out we share many of the same interests, and what I'm looking to develop - sort of a little niche project thing - she's been doing for years. I'll definitely be taking additional lessons from her. Thanks, Kim!

For many years I have wanted to sew and was too scared. After 1 lesson, Kim buit up my confidence enough so that I can sew seams forwards and backwards!! Threading the machine was challenging, I look forward to learning that and more next time, She is kind, ha a lot of patience and is very knowledgeable.

i focus on machine quilting. i will do just about anything to avoid hand sewing, but i do know several stitches and when to use them.

I understand patterns, how to change them, when not to change them, and how to make something easier!

Together, we can start at the beginning (how to use a sewing machine, what materials you need, etc) and work up to something amazing (queen sized bed cover perhaps!)

Personally, I am notorious for making my own projects more complicated than necessary but that's because i find a pattern I like and choose to alter it to my own specifications.

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!
