Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

About Kim
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to fi
nd out why my students love me.

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 8 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

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

My husband and sons may like to think I'm a craft hoarder, but I've never encountered a material I couldn't turn into a fun craft project. I love seeing the potential in everyday items-- from disposables to items in the hardware store. I love making traditional art--drawing, painting-- but I especially like to work with fabric and paper. I enjoy hand-sewing and machine sewing, papier mache and paper crafts. 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 and at my church, plus experience doing production machine and hand sewing. I'm a new grandmother, and I can't wait to be the "crafty grandma"-- meanwhil
e, let me help your child discover a love of sewing!

About Larry
Hi All

I've been in the IT industry for 20 years and love learning and teaching/training others. I graduated with a B.S. degree in Management Information Systems at the University of Central Florida and was 3 credits short of a math minor.

I've worked for small to large organizations and helped with their database and report development. I've also had great success with performance optimizations and can teach techniques on how you can be great as well.

I like going to conferences and watching webinars to learn the most I can and apply it to my work/career.

I hope to work with you soon.

Thanks for your consideration,

Larry Tuch
