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.

I went to Kari to get help with hidden stitches to make upholstery Seam repairs. She really helped me fix a lot of bad habits. I'll continue to work with her on leather seams as well. She is very professional as a teacher. She has a very good eye and can catch mistakes quickly. I was quite impressed with her artistic abilities. Kari has a really unique set of skills.

Kari taught my 12 year-old autistic son how to sew a pillow. It was a 6-week process but she was very calm and excited to share her skills. She did such a good job that I asked her to babysit him after the lessons were over. She taught classes after school at his Elementary school and the children always had a wonderful experience with beautiful projects to show.

New York, NY

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.

I've been sewing since I was 12 and I will share everything my Grandmother taught me. Basic sewing, your sewing machine, sewing with patterns, shopping for fabric and notions. 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!

About Carla
Learn to Sew! My Grandmother taught me how to sew one summer when I was 12 years old. I was hooked. From then, I began altering old clothes to make new pieces all during school, taking garments apart and putting them back together for a fresh look. I spent many years as a professional dressmaker and retail merchandising of designer sportswear. Learn to sew with me and have the looks you really want. Beginners, intermediate or an expert that wants to sharpen your skills.
