About Dawn
High school librarian by day, crafter for life. I'm an award winning embroider, quilter and knitter. I advise a high school sewing club as well as volunteer with Days for Girls and church prayer shawl ministry. Please note, during the summers my schedule is more flexible when school is not in session.

Students will find I'm passionate about all needle arts and want to pass that along to all generations and skill levels.

Learning to sew, knit or hand embroider can be intimidating, but with the right support can become a lifelong hobby that provides joy to your life. Let me show you how to get started.

I look forward to helping you exercise your creative side.

We've had Dawn teach a variety of classes at the Simsbury Public Library (CT). Our most popular is the arm knitting class we open to Teens & Adults. Everyone gets to take home an infinity scarf and they all leave learning a new skill. Dawn works well with all ages, is patient, and really enthusiastic about teaching what she loves. We can't wait to have Dawn back to teach more classes this Fall!

Dawn is an amazing sewing instructor. She taught my 8 year old daughter to sew her first quilt, which later won first prize at the Terryville Fair. Dawn is punctual, energetic, and patient. My daughter enjoyed every lesson and learned the fundamentals of sewing, cutting, and following patterns. Lessons were effective and fun.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. A couple years ago I began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people. I've recently moved to the Harrisbug, PA area, and am now teaching lessons here!

Thanks!
Josh

About Lily
I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For 9years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

I am now offering group lessons for an extremely low price compared to the private lessons cost.

The price is $20 per 1 hour of group lessons
(private lessons are $60 per 1 hour).
So that's $20 vs. $60 (66% discount)

I learned exactly what I needed to know within our planned lesson time; Jean Marc made this possible by planning with me in advance specific learning objectives. And he was available when I needed him (a big plus). I will definitely book another lesson, and highly recommend him!

About Linda
I started sewing because I was too tall for clothing offered for my age. As soon as I started sewing, my Mother wanted me to make her fancy dress for the local dances. And that was the beginning. By high school, I was the student teacher in the sewing class.

Since them I have made bridal gowns, fancy dress gowns, dresses and other garments as well as home decor (pillows, slip covers, duvet covers and more.)

I can help you with learning your machine, fixing a pattern, basic and advanced sewing and alterations.

To me sewing is a journey - i know that sounds dumb - but everything we make teaches us a new technique. From learning to sew a straight line to making bound button holes. Hand finishing is also something I can teach you so the inside is as beautiful as the outside and you will have a garment that will last you until it is Thr
