Sonya is super patient and was willing to re-demonstrate for this very nervous student. Looking forward to future sessions.

Amazing. I feel a lot more comfortable with my straight stich, understanding seam allowance, sewing terms, the french seam and more. I feel a lot less intimidated already and more eager. I am excited to evolve with her teachings. Thank you Sonya, see you next week!

My substantial areas of expertise are women and men patternmaking, draping, garment construction (sewing), tailoring, technical drawing, concepts sketching, from basic to advance skill set. I am also a big fan of incorporating recycled / repurposing materials such as leather, suede into garments.I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps students to realize their full potential.

Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! Very knowledgeable and caring! I am so happy! I’m buying a lot more lessons! Hassan is the best!!!!

Hasaan is a very patient teacher--which is definitely a requirement for online sewing/pattern making lessons. We worked on my bodice sloper, and he was able to quickly identify the fitting issues I had. He shares best practices, tips, and terminology all throughout the lesson so that you learn as much as possible. Will continue with him.
Lauren Stein
I had a tight time schedule to finish a summer project before I went in for surgery and Hasaan was very sensitive to that. He was able to teach me new skills in pattern making and cutting that made the process easier/ more accurate as well as sewing techniques. I would say my experience with him was very positive and he was always cheerful and and in a great mood and helped me out a lot with my project. I would definitely recommend using him for lessons.

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills.
