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.

I worked with Marie for 5 months, twice a week, learning French. She was an excellent teacher! She was always prepared, and was patient and kind as she helped me to greatly improve my French. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their French skills.

Lauren D.

Huntington Beach, CA

I've been sewing many styles of clothing for the past ten years, and as such I am familiar with various techniques and fabrics. My initial focus was historical clothing; I have extensive experience with historical research, silhouettes, and sewing techniques. I also make most of my own modern clothing and am quite versed in modern sewing needs. I can help with everything from understanding how to read patterns to learning machine or hand sewing to altering clothes for the perfect fit!

About Lauren

Hi there, I'm Lauren! I am a recent Berkeley graduate who completed a BA with honors in Classics and Art History. My greatest passions are sewing, English, and history. I first started sewing when I was thirteen and never stopped to look back! Since then I have sewn many types and styles of modern clothes. Additionally, I have extensive experience in historical fashions and historical sewing techniques! I've worked with all fabric types as well as drafting and flat patterning. My projects range from simple pillow cases to complicated Victorian corsets from scratch. With past projects featuring
embroidery, cross stitching, cording, and other decorative elements, I believe I can help you to better understand and explore the world of sewing!

I studied Classics and Art History in college and feel passionate about these topics, as well as English and literature. I worked on the editing board of several publications and would love to help you improve your writing, vocabulary, and grammar.

Please send me a quick message if you're interested in taking lessons to see if we can schedule the perfect lesson for you!!

Learning how to sew, and also some embroidery, I feel that Lauren makes it easy to learn, she is very knowledgable and patient. She is flexible on what you want to make and helps you to create it. It is fun to learn a practical and creative skill like sewing. I am so glad I am finally able to sew!

I was so impressed with Lauren! I am at a very beginning level and she made me feel very comfortable as we focused on the machine mechanics and threading the needle. I misplaced the power card so we went over my user guide and her reference sheet and she answered all my,questions. I am very excited for the next lesson.

Renee D.

Los Angeles, CA

I love to sew and greatly enjoy teaching the craft. I have been sewing since I was 7 years old, when I was taught by my Grandmother. A FIDM Fashion Design graduate, I worked in the garment industry as a pattern maker and junior dress designer. I then went on to work for 14 years in the Motion Picture industry in costume design and stylist work.

I enjoy working with children, guiding them to use their creativity in the process of sewing. Lessons can be tailored to the students needs, from learning how to use the sewing machine to the best way to approach sewing different fabrics and patterns. From fashion to interior design, I am happy to guide you to a finished product.

About Renee

I grew up in Los Angeles surrounded by a family of artists and designers. Following my career in fashion and costume design, I began making one of a kind silver jewelry. I have been working with fine silver for 8 years, selling my design pieces in art galleries and online.
I have always tried to share my passion for all things artistic with my two children. By volunteering to run art projects at their school, I discovered the joy of teaching. I decided to combine that with my sewing expertise to help children and adults realize their creative vision. I like helping students explore their ide
as while making a project come to life on the sewing machine.
