About Kelly

I have been sewing for more than 20 years and take a practical approach to learning sewing. I like to have students start with a project that is going to be achievable. If you've never sewn before we usually start with a pillowcase and then work up to more and more complicated projects, learning ne

I absolutely love Kelly's teaching style. She explains things clearly and allows me to do all the steps myself, while overseeing and giving me tips. She also lets me choose my projects so I'm motivated to work on each project. She is also very accommodating with my schedule and kiddos who are sometimes in the vicinity.

Sewing with me will not only teach you the basics but will help you delve into your creativity! Also, as someone with stress, I find sewing can help relieve some of it, and I can show you how to apply mindfulness techniques to make the most of your experience with sewing.

About Adeline

Hi! I grew up loving art, and then became interested in fashion and sewing during my teen years. After interning with a local Chicago designer I decided to go to university for apparel design. After graduating I had several jobs, one as a seamstress and most recently one at an embroidery shop where

Private Sewing Teacher

I specialize in teaching young students, typically 8 years and up. I am extremely patient and positive with beginners. I also enjoy the challenge of helping more experienced students bring their own creations to life. Lately, I've had several male students making and altering shirts.

I've been sewing as long as I can remember and have been teaching since 2009.

About Tracy

I signed up for Lily's beginners course-I literally didn't know a thing about sewing. By the end of the 1st lesson, I know how to thread the machine and sew a bunch of different stitches. Excited for the remaining lessons!
Rose T.
Lily is great! My mother really enjoyed her company and is looking forward to her next session. Thank you Lily!
Anita
Lily is a great instructor. She knows her craft well. She is patient, friendly and has a great smile and laugh that helps makes her student comfortable and at ease thus making learning fun. Lily has the knowledge to help anyone with sewing, embroidery, machine embroidery and more. I highly recommend Lily as an instructor for whatever area you are trying to learn from her huge arsenal of expert techniques.

Lily is helping me to become proficient using my embroidery machine. She immediately taught me a few tricks to getting my machine to do what it is suppose to do without much effort. She has in one lesson given me tons of information and help to get my embroidery hobby started properly. It's awesome to have one on one assistance right in my home so I don't have to take my heavy machine anywhere.

I'm disabled and having a service like this one available is invaluable. I have to keep my mind working and busy, and this helps me tremendously. Thank you LILY and TakeLessons for helping me to fulfill my goals!

Now that I've been sewing for 6 years, I constantly wish someone would have taught me as a child. There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you have from making your own clothes or altering a garment that didn't fit or giving a gift to someone you know no one else has. To be able to give that to someone else is what I dream about. Whatever your motivation for learning how to sew, I'd love to be instrumental in teaching you! All ages and skill levels welcome!

About Amber

Hi! I'd love to be able to help you on your journey of sewing. It's such a magnificent skill to have and there's nothing like the joy of making something yourself. Even if the end result isn't what you imagined or "good", the process from start to finish is one of the most life-giving and rewarding

Amber is very sweet and polite. She also listens and makes sure she understands what my expectation is. Besides my background of sewing, I also have limited English efficiency that I worry a little. Thank you so much for being kind and patient to me Amber. ❀️
