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

Angela is a very knowledgeable instructor! She helped me come up with different ways to construct garments for my unique business and sped up my surging and sewing skills in just 5 lessons. She’s very patient and excellent at explaining things in depth and easy for a beginner to understand. I would definitely recommend Angela!

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!

Sewing with me will not only teach you the basics but will help you delve into your creativity! Also, as someone with stress, I find sewing can help relieve some of it, and I can show you how to apply mindfulness techniques to make the most of your experience with sewing.

Hi! I grew up loving art, and then became interested in fashion and sewing during my teen years. After interning with a local Chicago designer I decided to go to university for apparel design.

I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring and alterations too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like ...

Tired of paying for alterations? Interested in giving your wardrobe a DIY makeover? Whatever your needs, my classes cater to your goals.

I learned to sew in a high school Costume Design class when I was 15 and I haven't stopped since. In 2013 I received a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design after which I started a cottage business making women's clothing and accessories.

My skills are specific to pattern-making, machine sewing, hand sewing, basic alterations and how to start a fashion business.

I believe that with a strong sewing foundation you will find endless capabilities.
My classes are offered from children to adults, all ages welcome! I look forward to hearing about your sewing goals!

I feel like I accomplished so much in our first lesson, and we are going to make a copy of my favorite pair of lounge pants at our next lesson.

"I Look forward to taking more lessons with Mya.

I took my sewing project —a tunic— with me and she explained clearly how to adjust the fit, which I’d been struggling with for a couple of weeks (and 3 muslins!). I left our one-hour session ready to conquer my tunic!

She is warm and friendly and is clearly not only an excellent sewist but also really good at teaching.

Thank you, Mya!"
