Now that I've been sewing for 6 years, I constantly wish someone would have taught me as a child. There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you have from making your own clothes or altering a garment that didn't fit or giving a gift to someone you know no one else has. To be able to give that to someone else is what I dream about. Whatever your motivation for learning how to sew, I'd love to be instrumental in teaching you! All ages and skill levels welcome!

About Amber

Hi! I'd love to be able to help you on your journey of sewing. It's such a magnificent skill to have and there's nothing like the joy of making something yourself. Even if the end result isn't what you imagined or "good", the process from start to finish is one of the most life-giving and rewarding

Amber is very sweet and polite. She also listens and makes sure she understands what my expectation is. Besides my background of sewing, I also have limited English efficiency that I worry a little. Thank you so much for being kind and patient to me Amber. ❤️

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

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!

"Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player."

"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!"

Best of all, my chess has improved dramatically since taking just a few lessons from him. Friends that used to destroy me in chess are now on the receiving end!! Thanks so much Aaron. I'm looking forward to him working with my son, who is turning 6, as well."
