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!

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.

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'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

"Donna worked with my teen daughter (with Asperger's) sew a cos play costume. I very much appreciated her patience and skill with the sewing project. She was very good at explaining every step that needed to be taken, along with sewing techniques. Most of all appreciated her promptness and organization in setting up sewing times. The outfit turned out wonderful and fits perfectly. My daughter had so much fun wearing it for her birthday event. Definitely will go back for future sewing lessons. Thanks Donna!"
