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!

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.

"If you love the look of Origami but were worried that it seems complicated to make, then this course is for you
Origami should be enjoyable! With the help of these lessons, you’ll see that it’s easy to create complex and elegant Origami models! Each lesson is between 30 and 45 minutes and gets you from the flat piece of paper to the completed model!
You get a great sense of satisfaction from being able to pick up a simple piece of paper and making it into a piece of art!

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!
