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 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.

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!"

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …
