Katey F.

Valley Village, CA

As I am still learning about the art of sewing myself, I only teach beginning sewing lessons to those wanting help with new machines or basic techniques. If you need assistance with specific areas, you are welcome to ask, but I very likely will not be the best candidate. However, I am always willing to work through issues with you and help find solutions as efficiently as possible based on my own experiences.

About Katey

I am currently in school to get my teaching credential and have spent some time in elementary school classrooms working with small groups or individual students. I have tutored students in reading, math, and Spanish through the America Reads program in New York and while I was in high school in California. I love helping students to achieve their academic goals and discover their true potential.

My older sister has autism so I have become very familiar with many different special needs children and am very understanding and patient with each student's level of learning. I also volunteered a
t an Autism center while studying abroad in Ghana during college, so I have some experience working with children in many different environments.

I also and run my own sewing & craft business from home, "Paula in Stitches". My teaching experience in Los Angeles has been at MOOD Designer Fabrics and Hands on Third. G

Any student can be confident I have the ability to teach anyone strong sewing & basketry skills from the very beginner to a more advanced student. I started my own sewing education in home economics in Jr. High School and have developed my skills over the years th
rough on the job training. I learned basketry in summer camp and have been self taught since the age of 13.

My capabilities have allowed me to become a sample sewer for designers like Greg Lauren , of the Ralph Lauren family and up and coming clothing companies like Freedman Denim.

My patience and enthusiasm for teaching a craft that I love is a strong asset my past students have enjoyed. Teaching is a relatively new adventure for me and I look forward to continuing to share this art form with you!

Marie B.

Glendale, CA

I have been sewing for over 30 years and teaching for over 12 years. I am a Fashion Design graduate (FIDM) and can teach sewing, sewing machine care and basics, fabric cutting, using a pattern, pattern alteration or drafting, and draping.

I can customize the class to your needs and interests. I can teach you the making of garments, costumes or home decoration items, it's up to you! I can't wait to teach you how to be proficient with your machine and hand sewing.

About Marie

I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator.

I really enjoy teaching, but after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more meaningful, that wouldn't just help people
in their career, but in every aspect of their life. This is where Life Coaching got my attention. Through coaching, I can have a real positive impact in the world, one person at a time.

My other passion is Fashion Design. I am a Fashion Design graduate from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I studied Fashion so I could make my own patterns. I have been sewing for over 30 years and just love creating clothing or costumes for my children and I, with commercial patterns or my own patterns. I am pretty crafty, really good at modifying patterns, and I have a great knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.
