I can teach the basics of sewing with intro lessons coaching you through making our own simple projects with no stretchy fabrics.
I also teach lessons on making corsets to more experienced sewers-from intermediate lessons making a mockup and fitting it to make your first corset to advanced lessons on drafting your own special corset patterns and making them a reality.
I can also teach lingerie making, formal wear, and tech wear to more advanced sewers, from basic bralettes and underwear, raincoats and athletic wear, to embellished luxury garments.

Kelly is great! Very knowledgeable and a lot of fun.
Nicole G.
Kelly did a great job showing me how to thread a sewing machine and load a bobbin, and get started on my first project. She has excellent cameras to show you close ups of her machine and to demonstrate what she is doing.
Regina
Kelly was well prepared and offered good advice on what materials I should get and what to expect in my next class. I can’t wait to get started on my first project.

SHE WAS GREAT! Dawn knows so much and help guide me in making a cute quilt for my son!
Winnie
Dawn is an awesome knitting teacher. She is patient, friendly, communicates well with my teenaged daughter. My daughter really enjoyed each lesson and learned a lot. Even though this is an online lesson, it really doesn't affect Dawn's teaching quality. I highly recommend Dawn to whoever is interested in learning how to knit.
Cheryl
I have been taking quilting lessons from Dawn for many months now and I have found her to be a kind, patient and compassionate teacher. She is so helpful between lessons with questions and has videos to help. Being an older student with medical issues comes with challenges but she faces them with grace and compassion.

Private Sewing Teacher

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 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.

"Mya was an awesome teacher! I am/was a complete novice prior to this lesson and, after an hour, she had me confident enough to go out and buy my own machine and start practicing with easy projects. After I get all set up at home and get some practice in, I will most definitely be returning for more lessons! I also love that she sent me home with notes and the practice samples we did so I can remember them later. Great experience - will definitely be back!"
