Private Sewing Teacher

I have been teaching small group classes of children between the ages of 5 and 13 since 2010. My favorite memory from my earliest class was when my 10 year old student went home and adjusted her mother's sewing machine to sew properly! I have taught classes from very basic sewing machine skills to machine quilting.

About Angela

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their schoo

Amazing. I feel a lot more comfortable with my straight stich, understanding seam allowance, sewing terms, the french seam and more. I feel a lot less intimidated already and more eager. I am excited to evolve with her teachings. Thank you Sonya, see you next week!
Shantelle
Ms Sonya is awesome..........I was hesitant about an online sewing class, but she made it very easy to follow and and extremely helpful. She's such a pleasure to work with.
Melissa Cope
Sonya is remarkable! She has been virtually teaching my 13-year old to sew since January. She is a patient, kind, intuitive, and knowledgeable teacher. She prepares well for every session and even gives "homework" to ensure that my daughter's skills are progressing. My daughter looks forward to her sewing hour every week. We truly appreciate Sonya for planting the seeds that will cultivate a lifelong passion.

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 …
