I have been teaching sewing for the last 10 years. Sewing is fun and when you learn the proper techniques, the possibilities are limitless. My teaching style is relaxed and I encourage creativity. We will start with a simple one hour pattern like a skirt, apron, or other simple line craft. Although personally I do not like using patterns to much, as a teaching agent it is the best way to learn and learn how to move away from the structure and get creative with your designs.

Broomfield, CO

I have been sewing for 25 years (Since I was 7). I can teach you anything you want to know from basic beginner sewing to the most advanced techniques. I can also show you how to draft your own patterns (including children's and menswear).

How to use speciality machine feet to make sewing straight much easier.

I have both regular machines and sergers in my studio and can teach you how to sew both non-stretch and stretch fabrics.

About Anne
I am a mom of two littles and work from home making pattern and technical specification packages for fashion designers.

I teach sewing, pattern making and fashion design lessons from my home studio in Broomfield.

I have been sewing since I was 7 years old and while I sometimes use commercial sewing patterns I prefer to make my own, I always have.

I have a degree in Pattern Making, Fashion Design, and Product Development. Adding a lot of standard technique to my own methods.

In sewing, I can teach you anything from the simplest basics to how to sew stretch fabrics, and much more. There is no need to be afraid of any particular fabrics or machines, book a lesson and we'll go over whatever you need.

In Fashion Design I can teach you the basics of fashion drawing and show you how to translate those designs into patterns and
sewn garments.

Want to learn how to alter clothes to make them fit better? Or how to upcycle pretty much anything.

Need just one lesson? OK :)

My goal as a teacher is to help you achieve your goals. I know that we all learn at a different pace.

Juki and Brother Sergers
4x8ft drafting and cutting table

Anne is a great sewing instructor. I was able to understand how to use a sewing machine and am more comfortable using one. The pillow case project I worked on was a fun project to do. The easiest way to learn how to sew is by doing it and practicing. It's definitely easier learning how to sew with the teacher next to you and answering your questions. I highly recommend Anne as a sewing instructor.

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. We start with the fundamentals of hand-sewing and make our way up, all this with a mixture of fun, listenting and patience.

About Alexandra
I love learning and teaching languages and although I studied law I really prefer teaching languages (I speak 5 languages) and sewing (another of my favourite hobbies) love travelling and photography.

I will be happy to answer the questions which arise in between your one-on-one lessons. In short, I will do everything I can to increase your rate of language acquisition.

It goes without saying that I love to teach! I have an easy-going personality and a positive attitude. Learning such a beautiful and multifaceted language as Spanish or Romanian will be fun with me. I love travelling, I have hosted many exchange students, so I have developed good communication and creativity skills.

I will encourage your interest and curiosity into the different cultures by using amusing topics during the session, which will automatically imp
rove your experience.

I am able to communicate with students at a very personal level . I am very passionate and enthusiastic to get them to learn. I will also promote study habits.

I have a lot of nice material and is interested in what people have to say and their needs. I am friendly and kind; I try to correct students making sure they don't feel embarrassed. I makes people feel comfortable, and encourages them to participate and learn, -even the shy ones. I enjoy the class as much as you.

Sewing for me started off as a hopeless dream. I thought I couldn’t and wouldn’t be successful in creating what my heart desired. Sewing is one of the many forms of self expression. Allow me to help you express yourself through sewing weither it be fashion and textiles or making a baby blanket.

I've been sewing since I was a child. It was something I learned from my grandmother and also self-taught. I'll teach you how to set up your machine, install zippers, create darts and follow patterns along with many other techniques. If you have a specific idea in mind and want to learn how to accomplish it, I'll work with you to complete that sewing goal.

About Sarah
I'm a life-long learner and avid seamstress. I have been sewing since I was a young child and learned from my grandmother basic hand sewing. From there I learned other techniques through books, trial and error, and hands-on classes how to sew professional looking garments, quilts and bags.

I love everything about sewing from the ideas to the creation. It is a slow process and can be a lot of fun if you take your time and can enjoy the process. I want to teach others this amazing skill.
