I teach hand embroidery, hand sewing and machine sewing to students of all ages. Beginning students can learn hand sewing stitches that are used in conjunction with machine sewing to finish items.

Embroidery is like painting with a needle and floss. Students can learn basic embroidery stitches to use on pre-printed kits or to create their own drawings.

This is not a machine embroidery class. Get ready to move beyond the basic cross stitch (by hand). Let me coach you on specialty stitches such as satin, queen, eyelets, Rhodes, French knots and more. Let me repeat, this will not be a machine embroidery class, every stitch will be made by hand!

I've been cross stitching since 1983 and teaching it for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll learn how to organize your material for easier sewing, master basic stitches, and as time goes on you'll be able to tackle complicated stitches and designs. I specialize in counted cross stitch, but also have experience with redwork, drawnwork, Bargello, pulled thread, hardanger, and canvaswork. Typically, I use The Cross Stitcher's Bible by Jane Greenoff but can recommend other helpful resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Dawn has wonderful instruction and is quite patient with new beginners like myself! Explanation is clear and she has a freakin wealth of knowledge about sewing, patterns, tips and tricks to make the outcome much neater, and starts off with the perfect projects for a beginner. Def a five start rating! :-)

Dawn is awesome! Very thorough with her explanations and really customizes lessons to my goals. She’s very encouraging and always reachable for questions outside of classes. Her hardware set up was conducive to on line lessons so it felt as much of an in person class as it could get. The lessons have really prepared me and got me excited for many more sewing projects!
Laurie
SHE WAS GREAT! Dawn knows so much and help guide me in making a cute quilt for my son!

Private Embroidery Teacher

Embroidery is my favorite subject to teach. It offers the student endless creative possibilities. There are amazing machines that enable you to stretch your imagination beyond just sewing to decorating and personalized branding. You will learn how to hoop and set your machine for the best embroidery experience.

"I loved my class with Rhiannon. I was a little unsure about how an embroidery class would truly work online. However, my class was clear, enjoyable and I particularly liked how Rhiannon showed me how each stitch I learned today, can be used to create specific effects. She used her own embroidery projects to illustrate this for me.
I can't wait for my next class!"

"Lily, by far and away has exceeded mine and my wife's expectations. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable. We are in the process of opening a embroidery and screen printing store and Lily was very helpful with eliminating some of the road blocks we have faced over last month. It was only an hour but I felt that we accomplished a lot in that 60 minutes. My wife has accomplished a bunch of shirts in the one day since our lesson. With eliminating some of the road blocks she had encountered, she was able to finish a project without frustration and wasting hours. We look forward to next weeks lesson. I rarely give reviews and I am not doing this to be nice. I truly want to give LILY the Props she deserves. She immediately makes you feel very comfortable and never makes you feel dumb. We highly recommend her services."

"Like many, I found a new craft during the Covid Shut Down: machine embroidery. I’m a seamstress, but embroidery presented a new learning curve that required expert assistance... & then I found Lily!!! Personable, patient, and so very knowledgeable! I look forward to my weekly classes and learning a new skill - stitching “like a BOSS” - because of my new teacher Thank you Lily!"

"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!"
