I just want to say, "I am very pleased working with Thomas." I never thought that I could master the game of chess especially by being impatient and a slower learner. This is my fourth lesson and I have already played a game of chess. Thank You So Much, Thomas. I can't wait until my next lessons.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.

Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.

Look forward to creating with you all!

I learned to sew in Vacation Bible School at my church when I was in 7th grade. I made my first pair of overalls and was on top of the world. That began my love of sewing and all things crafty. Today I love working as a special education teacher. But my first love is teaching beginner and intermed

Felicia is an great teacher. Her training room has everything you need and more. When I first started class, she greeted me with a smile that made me feel comfortable. Her knowledge and experience of sewing is remarkable. Great teacher and great class, if you dont take her class, you are missing out on a true talent.

I have been teaching small group classes of children between the ages of 5 and 13 since 2010. My favorite memory from my earliest class was when my 10 year old student went home and adjusted her mother's sewing machine to sew properly! I have taught classes from very basic sewing machine skills to machine quilting.

About Angela

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their schoo

Angela was a an excellent instructor! She was very engaged with staff as we had zero experience! Angela was able to incorporate mindfulness practices into our knitting session with my management team. I would highly recommend her!

I've been playing chess for over 50 years. In school, I implemented training sessions to help build our teams into stronger performances. I started training students again 10 years ago and enjoy the opportunity to share the passion of chess. I also teach dance and have been trained in teaching concepts by my wife, a teacher with a Masters! Whether young or old, we can be successful in your progress in chess!

About Bruce

Bruce learned the game of chess in the late 60's, becoming a "Fischer Kid" during the 70's. In high school, he easily captured the team championships and represented his school until graduating in 1976. He taught some of his fellow students to play and improve in their games during this time a

From the very first lesson, it was clear that Dan possesses a deep love of billiards and has carefully considered the best ways to impart his knowledge to others. The overall quality of my game (and my enjoyment derived while playing it) has risen dramatically as a direct result of working with him."

5 Questions Every Jewelry Designer Should Have An Answer For

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …
