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!

Want to learn more about "what makes you tick", what your energetic blueprint/makeup is? Or perhaps you know the basics, but you want to learn "to read" charts, or to work with "moving energy" (transits and progressions) more effectively.

Whatever your desire and current level of knowledge, astrology is a wonderful language and method of learning "how you work yourself" deeply, and how to understand/partner with others (and with the universe!) more effectively.

I can teach you about your chart in a more academic sense (I have 20 years of tutoring/teaching experience!)--OR we can integrate astrology with healing, meditative and/or creative practices, to help you integrate your inherent archetypal expression in a deeper, more impactful way.

"My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars."
