Private Sewing Teacher

I started sewing at age 8 (thanks mom!)

I have a degree in technical theatre with an emphasis in costume design and technology. I design costumes for community theatres, opera companies and drag queens.

I helped teach sewing and costuming during my degrees. I believe in starting beginners with familiarizing themselves with their machines and how to read patterns.

I would love to share my years of experience designing, sewing and crafting with you!

Jessica helped me with tailoring & alteration challenges, answered all my questions and provided excellent tips for improving my techniques. Now I know how to achieve the looks I’m going for, and I’m excited to continue sewing. Thank you Jessica!

My lessons were based on altering a tunic top for a custom fit. Jessica, is a pro! I learned so much from her instruction that I will continue to take classes for other sewing projects.

This beginning sewing course starts with working and setting up your machine. Learning basic functions, stitches and how to sew straight. We will start sewing a pillow and I'll instruct you how to use an invisible stitch to close.

Private Sewing Teacher

I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

About Kathleen

I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself. Now I have

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 and alterations 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 ...

"Mya was an awesome teacher! I am/was a complete novice prior to this lesson and, after an hour, she had me confident enough to go out and buy my own machine and start practicing with easy projects. After I get all set up at home and get some practice in, I will most definitely be returning for more lessons! I also love that she sent me home with notes and the practice samples we did so I can remember them later. Great experience - will definitely be back!"
