Please see the Overview below for general information.

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.

About Kim

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 7 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children. I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience. Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. I charge by the hour, not by the person. You are ...

Kim is a wonderfully patient and great, sweet teacher. I enjoyed my first class very much and look forward to advancing with her.

This instructor surpassed my expectations. She should be teaching an entire class at FIT or Pratt because she is incredibly knowledgeable, skilled, patient and thorough. She is also responsible and clearly very passionate. She is interesting and after having sessions w/ Kim she has definitely sparked my interest in continuing and improving. Kim could probably teach physics to a monkey she is that good!

Beginning Machine Quilting - I have been quilting for about 14 years and can teach all of the basics.

Needle turn Hand Applique and Karen Eckmeier's wall-hanging applique method -- I have been using Needle turn hand applique for about 10 years now and love it! I also use Karen Eckmeier's applique method for making wall hangings.

About Susan

I have been a quilter for 14 years now and have been doing freehand embroidery for over 40 years. My "day job" is working as an E-Learning Specialist and Trainer. I am available usually on the weekends for teaching and imparting my passion of quilting and embroidery. My quilting is all done on a home machine and is not fancy, but always looks nice!

I have over 5 years of experience as a fully credentialed 8th grade science teacher and over 10 years as a substitute teacher (in all grades and subjects, including special education classes). I hold a valid teaching credential with CSETs passed in math, biological/life science, and geo/Earth science. I resigned from my tenured job to be a stay-at-home mom. Kids (of all ages) are important, and I would like the opportunity to continue teaching others.

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.

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 have been teaching 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 ...

Quilting is a fun hobby that allows you to create beautiful works of art. Don't let the size of the quilt intimidate you, anyone can learn to quilt!

About Elizabeth

Hi, there! My name is Elizabeth and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2013 and have loved helping my students learn a new skill and gain confidence in their abilities. I went to UNCGreensboror and earned a degree in fashion design in 2003. I'm a patient and fun person and my teaching style is something I try to tailor to each student's goals and needs on an individual basis. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Jordanna P. Vail, AZ

I've been teaching for 5 years. I use quilting as a teaching tool and to get kids excited about sewing. Quilting is a great way to introduce kids to the boundless opportunities of color, as well as developing fine motor coordination.

About Jordanna

Hi! I'm Jordanna and I've been sewing since I was 8. I started teaching 5 years ago. I've had student's quilts in the local quilt show for 3 consecutive years. My students have created historically accurate costumes, their favorite outfits, doll clothes, and formal gowns. My goal is to equip and enable my students to take on any projects they want to.
