She is continuing where my previous instructor left off. I would think it is difficult to
step in and continue another instructors work but she is doing that so far. I received some tips to improve my singing.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more. We are going to have SEW MUCH FUN!

Felicia is absolutely amazing. My daughter has learned so much in the short time that she has been taking classes. She loves every minute of it and makes sure she is at every class.

If you are looking to take sewing classes you definitely want her as your instructor.

I can teach a brand new beginner to thread and take care of his /her machine. I am proficient in using patterns, pinning and cutting out any and all types of clothing. For my intermediate students I can teach them to create their own patterns and make clothing from a picture they love. I can teach them to install any kind of zippers. Advance students I can teach major alterations and also how to make difficult clothing like wedding dresses and suits!

Patricia is a wonderful instructor and an amazing seamstress. I had a great experience today. I learned how to cut patterns as well as placed them unto the fabric. Patricia even went out her way to give me one of her sewing machines so I can practice at home. I will recommend her to any and everyone.

I will help you learn how to sew clothing or make quilts. Pretty much anything you want to learn to make, I will help you get there. Let me know what you would like to accomplish and we will work together to get you well on your way.

I prefer to teach sewing at your house on your machine.

I took university classes in advanced sewing techniques. I spent two years working professionally for an opera company as a wardrobe technician, and several years as a seamstress/custom clothing maker. Due to this experience, I have several techniques and tricks to share with you to help you become successful.

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!
