I cannot tell you how many individuals have come to me and told me, "I have this sewing machine but I don't know how to use it." This is your opportunity to learn how to perform basic tasks with that sewing machine that might be collecting dust.
Being able to sew means being able to save money and make something that is unlike anything you could buy in any store.
I will demonstrate how to use your machine, how to care for your machine, how to read a pattern, how to preserve those special patterns that you use most often and how to be creative and make something that is yours and yours alone.
I have been sewing for over 30 years and was making my own clothes by the time I was in second grade.
I teach the foundation skills of handwork, using a sewing machine, finishing, hemming, ironing, measuring, pinning, cutting,and following a pattern or instructions.
I can help you make curtains, pillows, bags, aprons and other household items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern or basic garment.
My lessons are not like reality TV. Projects take longer than you may think they will. I will teach you how to properly create a quality finished project.
Please note, I do not teach pattern making, draping and advanced tailoring. My experience with serger/marrow machines is limited.
Please see the Overview below for general information.
I specialize in teaching the novice learn how to sew. From basics of repairing a seam, hemming pants to replacing a zipper or tailoring a shirt. You will learn basic apparel construction (ie: skirts, pajamas, etc.) as desired. If you have a specialized garment, I can assist you to make a pattern from that piece. Give it a whirl, you'll save lots of money on seamstress fees and make custom items all by yourself.
As I am still learning about the art of sewing myself, I only teach beginning sewing lessons to those wanting help with new machines or basic techniques. If you need assistance with specific areas, you are welcome to ask, but I very likely will not be the best candidate. However, I am always willing to work through issues with you and help find solutions as efficiently as possible based on my own experiences.
