I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring and alterations too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed techniques.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

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.

I spent time as a professional dressmaker and continue to make my clothing in my leisure. I love the craft and you will too!

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!

I've had a few lessons with Sonya under my belt now and I could not be happier with her as my instructor. I came into this with very specific things I wanted to learn or touch on and she has been very knowledgeable. I'm not an absolute beginner, more of an advanced beginner and she adapts her lesson plans accordingly. She knows her stuff, she's great at teaching, flexible and just an all around cool chick. Money and time well spent.

I have been sewing since the age of five years old. My first project was a shirt and skirt. I fell in love! I have now been sewing for 45 years. the last 30 years I have been sewing specialty items for historic use. I am a master Craftsman in hand sewing and machine sewing. I specialize in costuming. I am offering classes in hand sewing. Historically correct stitching. Machine sewing everything from supportive garments to outerwear and historic accessories. I also offer classes in pattern making. I have been involved in a non-profit 501 c 3 Historical Society for 50 years. I have taught within that Society for 20 years. I have sold my hand-sewn and machine sewn items within that Society for 30 years. I do have a teaching degree from Weber State University in Utah. I have taught in public classes for 15 years.

About Laura
I am a bit of an unconventional teacher. I like to hear my lessons around my students best ability to learn. My courses are set at a very comfortable pace and are laid back. I have been contracted to sew costuming that had to pass as historically correct.

Hand sewing a costume for an actress playing Queen Elizabeth the first. Everything had to be hand-sewn from the undergarments to the seven layers that consists of a historically correct tutor costume. I have some pieces for reenactors. I have also been contracted to so for an exhibit in several museums. I have customers all over the world. I also have experience in creating patterns from photos alone or someone's drawing.

I like to share my love of history and sewing. I do this through teaching and sharing. I love to see the excitement in someone's eyes when they put they're very firs
t project on. The fit and comfort of a homemade, handmade item surpasses anything that you can get, unless you go to a Couture shop. Couture sewing is a dying art. One I hope to at least bring more interest in. You're wanting to learn how to make anything from Kilts to Jerkins or corsets to a smart 40s dress suit and everything in between this is the place.

With pattern-making we will learn how to take patterns off of clothes that we love. You know that shirt that fits beautifully but they don't make it anymore. I will also go over some ways to find inexpensive material that still gives you the wow factor.

I customize my classes to what you want to learn to sew, always making sure to cover basic techniques that will help you learn to sew new items.

I can teach you starting from the basics -- how to thread your machine, how to sew a simple item such as a pillow -- and up through more difficult things like sewing a garment.

I can teach you how to select your fabric and pattern and what tools you will need.

If you have specific things you want to learn (e.g. sew a zipper, make a specific item). I can teach you that.

About Kristene
I have been sewing for 40 years -- since I was 11 years old -- first learned to sew on my Grandmother's treadle sewing machine and haven't stopped yet. My aunt was a professional seamstress and I spent summers with her learning how to sew. I've enjoyed sewing clothes for my children and grandchildren, american Girl doll clothes, quilting, and time spent in my sewing room with fabric creating something new. I do machine embroidery and love embroidering items for my home as well as t-shirts and other clothing items. I've taught my daughter and several friends to sew. You will learn in a casual and fun atmosphere focused on making the items you are most interested in creating.
