Giving another glowing rating! I highly recommend Mya for sewing and for any craft. Very patient, knowledgeable, encouraging. I wish I had know about her years ago! :-)
Joan S.
Once again, had another fun and educational session with Mya. She is very knowledgeable, patient, offers her expertise and knowledge in a kind and caring manner. I am learning so much and will continue! Thank you!
Joan S.
My first experience was very pleasant! Mya is a very knowledgeable, caring instructor. She showed me parts on my own machine (per my request) that I wasn't aware of and/or I was not using properly.

I had already signed up for 5 classes, however, I already know I would definitely continue if I needed more instruction. Thanks so much for this service!

I am truly enjoying learning how to sew with Rosemary as my teacher. So far, I have seen a blouse and a skirt that I need to add finishing touches on. I am going to sign up for more lessons. I want to perfect the art of sewing.

Private Sewing Teacher

I've been sewing my entire life and while I'm new to teaching in a formal setting I've been helping my friends and classmates with sewing since I was in high school. I can teach you basics like how to sew a button and we can work our way up to sewing an outfit.

I can teach you: building (sewing a item of clothing from scratch), altering, tailoring, repairing, embroidery, beading, prop making, hand stitching, machine stitching, how to use a serger, how to read and use patterns, how to plan a project, how to draft a basic pattern, beginner upholstery, and what I call "make it work" sewing tricks for when you don't have fancy equipment or supplies.

If you have a specific project (I'm looking at you, cosplayers and diy Halloween enthusiasts) or if you want to learn a skill that you will use for the rest of your life. I can help.

About Kathren

I'm a grad student at George Washington University who just moved to the DC area from Chicago, and I'm originally from Texas. I'm a maker who specializes in sewing but I dabble in many other media. I learned everything I know by choosing a project and learning what I needed to to complete that pr

Hi! My name is Avalon. I have my bachelors degree in fashion design and I’ve been making clothes for almost 10 years but I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember. I started teaching kids how to sew one summer and I’ve been in love with it ever since.

Omg I so love the way she teaches. I was in need of learning how to sew from someone else but she did not help me the way she should’ve. So I found out about Avalons Sewing class and I loved it. Highly recommend you all to take a class or two with this wonderful human being

She explained step by step and hands-on at my speed as a new sewing student. I look forward to telling my friends and family my experience i had with beatrice."

"I am so happy that I found Mya! I had a very enjoyable lesson with Mya at her home. Mya is a very good teacher, with sensitivity to the particular needs of the student. Mya taught me pattern-making. She did so in a way that allowed me to first observe, then practice what I had observed. I came away with a usable pattern to make an item no longer available in stores.

Whether you are new to sewing or need help in developing new skills, you will find Mya able to meet you at your sewing level and you will end the lesson with enthusiasm for sewing and looking forward to your next lesson!!"
