I've been sewing my clothes since 13. I was supporting myself during my years in Art Institute by sewing for clients. After graduating I partnered with SBA Concern and my designs were produced commercially. In 1994 I got award for pachwork design from French magazine "Modes & Travauch". I can teach how to sew from table runner to coat and beyond.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Students can expect a Systematic Approach to Sewing, what I fondly call the SASsy way. We will start with foundational topics like the Anatomy of the Sewing Machine, building on that foundation one skill at a time. I've learned that remaining motivated to sew often holds people back so I will also teach you how to plan out projects and how to build a sewing habit that helps you see consistent results and keeps you motivated to sew!

About Timpla
Hello! You want to learn to sew? I'm Timpla and I can help you!

FEEDBACK FROM MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

"It was great! I learned so much about my sewing machine."

"Had a great time Timpla! I was able to hem my daughter's skirt and repair a shirt sleeve. Looking forward to next time."

"I definitely benefited from the class! Thanks so much!!!"

I LOVE helping my students conquer their "fear" of the sewing machine, which unleashes excitement about their potential to sew unique items for themselves and others.

I've been sewing since I was a young girl, learning from my grandmother.

My experience includes sewing women's and girl's apparel, home decor, and quilts. I decided to start teaching private and group lessons after receiving many requests from friends and acquaintances.

I look forward to helping you develop the
skills you need to tackle any sewing project.

Sewing Machine, check! Material, check! I can help you bring the two together with knowledge and care as your sewing instructor. Whether you have a specific project in mind that you'd like help with, or maybe you just need some help getting back into sewing, each class is tailored to make the skills you have shine, while you absorb new ones.

About KIM
I am a fashion samplemaker, and a devoted sewing teacher! My greatest joy is seeing my students master new skills, empower themselves through crafting their own style, and applying their learning throughout their lives. I maintain a blog on Tumblr where you can see some current and past fashion samplemaking work (as released by the designer themselves) as well as video tutorials that I've made.

While I am patient, my enthusiasm is palpable during each lesson. Each lesson is designed for maximum student engagement using a show-not-tell approach. Sewing is a hands-on enterprise! So, I do my best to empower each student with each lesson.

Kim is super knowledgeable and great at connecting tools, skills and goals. I have learned a lot more already in one lesson than I would have expected, all of it relevant to what I want to be able to sew for myself on my machine. Thank you, Kim! Looking forward to my next lesson :)

I found Kim after looking for someone to make me some custom athletic tank tops for the gym. After meeting her, I chose to learn how to sew instead, because she did a good job of making sewing make sense to me. To say I felt awkward my first time in a sewing store as a 6'6" bodybuilder the understatement of my life.

She took me from knowing nothing at all about sewing to being able to make my own work-out tops. Then she taught me how to make work shirts, and soon together we will start making my first pair of pants. (If you're as tall as I am, you know this is a very big deal.)

Friends and coworkers, for the first time, they're seeing me in clothes that fit my arms and shoulders properly and they ask where I got them. I feel really good about that, and I don't have rashes under my armpits from too-tight "XL" shirts.

If she can get my burly dopey butt to learn to sew, she can teach anyone.

She also has a stocked sewing studio. Most lessons I go there to learn, but I've also had her visit my place. I prefer to go there, if you need a button or fabric, she probably has it, and will let you buy muslin from her instead of taking a special trip to the Garment District to get it.

I've been teaching sewing for 30 years and my students have gone on to creating their own clothing by use of patterns. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain knowledge of how to thread a sewing machine, tension, bobbin, stitches available according to your specific machine or ones I have available in my studio. As time goes on you'll be able to cut and sew a specific project's desired from patterns. I love working with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!

About Cindy
I'm multi-media artist who offers various pottery, painting, fiber art (fiber processing, various types of felting, natural dyeing, yarn making, rug making, sewing, crocheting, knitting) jewelry, candles, and soap making and canning workshops in my art studio. We also have an onsite mini farm with llamas, alpacas, sheep and peacocks. We shear our animals annually and use our processed fiber in our workshops. Students learn the ancient traditions of naturally dyeing fiber with local plants and how to spin into art yarn with spindles.

I've been teaching sewing and patternmaking for less than a year. However I found it very rewarding to see my students grow and eventually finish a project on their own without my help. After years working in fashion industry in NYC, I feel the desire to share and pass on my skills to the people who have great passion either in design or sewing but lack of the skills. I have verity of teaching material. It all depends on what you need and what you want to achieve.

About Vena
My name is Vena. I'm a fashion designer, tailor, sewer, enthusiastic craft lover. I had worked at major fashion brands in NYC for more than 7 years with a fashion design degree from Parsons. My specialty is in sewing, patternmaking, draping, tailoring and fitting. I have a great passion in teaching and extremely patient. I provide the best quality and hands on sewing skills that we use in the industry. If you would like to learn how to draft a pattern from scratch to make your own clothes or alter your clothes that fit you, I will show you how to achieve that. The courses will design and cater to your needs. I look forward to having a great sewing time with you.

Vena is a phenomenal teacher. She really ensures that you understand the concepts fully when teaching and doesn't rush through anything to fit it within a certain time frame. In our first day, she helped me learn the semantics of patternmaking and sewing and apply it visually to a dress form! For any beginner or someone who needs to solidify their foundation, Vena is a great instructor!

Had my first lesson today and Vena showed me many tips on how to lay out the pattern properly on the fabric and reviewed what the pattern symbols mean. I learned things I never knew and, as we went along, she gave me the reasons why things are done a certain way which is good so it'll make sense and I won't be as likely to forget them. I'm very happy and can't wait for Lesson 2.
