Garment construction, alterations and what ever you'd like to learn to create beautiful clothing for yourself or your children. I spent time as a professional dressmaker and continue to make my clothing in my leisure. I love the craft and you will too!

Haven't taken sewing classes since high school. This is a personalized option for adults that considers the "basics". Best for someone who wants to replicate favorite looks and learn how fabric and notions work together.

Not your mother's home ec class! Sewing is a great foundation for any child who likes to work with their hands. Problem-solving and math skills will reinforced, and your child will be introduced to fractions, measuring, making patterns, and the engineering of textiles. We start with the fundamentals of hand-sewing and work at your child's pace toward machine sewing skills. Your child will make practical and whimsical projects--scaled to their ability--and will feel a sense of accomplishment after each lesson. Your child will be make the design decisions that lead to confident maker skills. I'm a homeschooling mom, afterschool art and animation instructor, costuming hobbyist, and always have a craft I'm working on. I love helping kids gain confidence and build their knowledge and skills at a comfortable pace.

About MarKay
Kids love to learn to Sew with Mrs. Appel, with fun, confidence-building projects!

Sewing Lessons (hand and machine) for kids and Tee Shirt Quilt Lessons.

Sewing--its art and technology--thrill me! I like making traditional art--drawing and painting--but I especially love to work with fabric and paper. I enjoy hand-sewing and machine sewing, papier mache and paper crafts. I spot the art potential in everyday items-- from disposables to items in the hardware store.I love the maker movement, and want to help children see the benefits of making things for themselves and exploring their creativity. I have years of experience working with children in after school programs, churches, plus experience doing production machine and hand sewing. I'm a new grandmother, and I can't wait to be the "crafty grandma"-- meanwhile, let me help you
r child discover a love of sewing!

Hi all, I'm an experienced sewer with a degree in Textiles and Design! I've been sewing and teaching for over 20 years and love what I do.
Because I've worked with children and created lesson plans I know exactly how to teach with clarity and work according to the needs of my students.

About Adenike
Hello,

My name is Adenike, you can call me Adé. I'm a trained fashion stylist and designer with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Rhode Island.

I have taught sewing and design, to people of all ages, genders, and abilities throughout my professional career. It began in 2002 when I decided to work with the Americorps, Teach America program. There I created and executed a lesson plan that taught students how to sketch, render, sew, read patterns and adjusts garments for personal to suit their personal needs. The program incorporated science, math, and history so that they had a practical and anthropological approach to fashion design. It was great, and I discovered that one of my other joys in life is teaching.

Most recently, I've worked with Hobby Quest, where I teach children in an after schoo
l setting. Hobby Quest requires an extensive background check because of that fact that work is done with students on school grounds. I can supply references that will attest to my professionalism and easy going nature.

It's recommended that you schedule for a minimum of 60 minutes to get the most out of your lesson.

*IMPORTANT* Potential students interested in working on projects will be asked for project details and current sewing ability.
If a student is a beginner sewer, then he or she will be required to have a complete command of fundamental sewing as well as basic machine knowledge before introduction of project. There will be no exception to that rule.

Sonya has a great knowledge of sewing and is very patient in her teaching method. She focuses on my creative style and helps me to apply my style in any project that I am making. I have come to her many times with questions on sewing and quilt making and each time she answer my questions and makes sure that I understand the next steps to move forward to complete my projects. I love giving baby blankets and quilts for gifts and she has taught me how to make gifts that I love and the people I am giving them to love also. I will continue to use her to help me advance in learning to quilt and sew.
