A Better Way to Learn
Teaching since 2013
Teaches Beginner, Intermediate
Teaches students 10 and up
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!

My students can expect a lesson that's full of fun, engaging and accompanied by a high level of passion and energy.
I'm result oriented and very dedicated to my students and provide students with a lot of constructive feedback during the lessons.
Lessons will mainly focus on students strength and weaknesses, through many different means. The lessons are supplemented by several materials: work book problems, live game play, analysis of student's own games, online resources, classic game review and much more. My custom lesson plans are based on the student's own background and experience. I am always committed to making each lesson fun and exciting!

At first, I was unsure of how online sewing lessons would work out, but if I had the opportunity again, I would definitely sign-up with lessons from Ms. Dawn,
especially if your looking for thorough, well-explained lessons then I would encourage you to sign-up. With the skills that I've learned during these past few weeks, I can now see great improvement in my sewing and it's all thanks to the time and effort put forth by her dedicated instruction. Thank you for reading, and happy sewing!!"
