About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

About Yaelle
Bonjour !

I was born and raised in a small town in West of France where the speciality is... a handkerchief!

I have since lived in Belgium, Norway, Israel, Romania and now Texas following my husband who is a scientist. In every country, I taught French to several students and developped great tutoring skills from it.

Beside teaching and science, my passion in life is cooking! I will be more than happy to share French recipes with you so you can feel and taste some of the French culture.

I love working with Yaelle! She makes class fun and really pushes you to have confidence in speaking the language. You get full immersion with her, so you truly feel ready to join the French culture. I've learned to better read French, as well as understand the language. I highly recommend class with Yaelle.

About Ashe r
Hello! My name is Asher HaVon! I am 27 years old and I absolutely love cooking and singing! You can call me the singing Chef! Lol. Over the years I have been very blessed to stand on many stages here in the US such as broadway in New York to singing for our former President Barack Obama. Using the skills I was taught as a child from my mother has pushed me vocally into a land of many opportunities, from breathing, to land on perfect notes, to finding your sounds. I have mastered the lanes of Vocal Knowledge, and also in the kitchen! I’ve learned that to be a good vocalist you have to feed your body amazing things! Eating healthy, cooking healthy, preparing dishes that makes my heart and taste buds happy are always a win win! Let’s work together! It will be great!

About Lian
I am a food lover, always searching for great things to taste even when not working. I enjoy learning about new ingredients; how to eat them, how to cook them and the history behind them.

Over the years I have realized how food can tell so much about a place and its people which is why I decided to pursue a career in the food industry. I can give you tips and tricks which will help you realize cooking is not too hard as long as you have the passion and determination to make beautifully tasting dishes.
My experience is solid with Mexican cuisine especially tacos. In my hometown Chicago, I have been working with a restaurant concept of new and exciting tacos. We use the humble tortilla as a vessel to transport some of the most delicious fillings from all over the world, while leaving the traditional staples of Mexican Cuisine shine on th
e menu.

I can organize to fulfill the needs of each individual student. The food world is very large, but depending on the interest of the student we can head on a path and part from there.

My curriculum will be based on the basics and according to experience/ability of each:
Safety
Knife handling/Skills
Cooking Techniques

I can't wait to show you a taste of what it's like to be chef! I have plenty of stories about kitchen life and my travels. The most important thing to remember is to have fun, enjoy the moment and never stop learning, because everyday has something new to offer!
