About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

Austin is an excellent instructor. He was very patient with me and helped me to work on the areas that I felt needed the most improvement, developing new techniques and skills to take my game to a higher level. I highly recommend!

About LILY
I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For six years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

About Kimberly
I have been fortunate enough to be able to make a living doing what I love. My mother taught me to sew when I was a teenager, and I've loved and grown the skill ever since.

I have been creating and sewing purses, laptop bags, accessories, and many home decor items for the past 18 years, and nothing is more fulfilling than seeing an idea come to life with a needle and thread. I am a freelance sewist, and have taken on all kinds of jobs, from sewing pillows, to re- upholstering a client's sun room.

My own personal style is a bit edgy, bold, and colorful. I am happy to guide you in color and fabric choices that will compliment your taste and style.

I can work at whatever pace is comfortable for you, as well as help you develop a sewing practice that keeps you motivated to sew! I am highly skilled, extremely patient, and am ready a
nd willing to take on any project you can think of!

Kimberly taught a sewing class at my business, re:Purposes, a creative reuse studio in Lynn, MA. We had a wonderful time learning how to create a zippered clutch. She was incredibly informative! She taught us about our machines, sewing basics, and helped us create our finished clutches. We had a great time and are so grateful for her instruction! Highly recommended!

About Celeste
Hello, fellow creatives!
I got into sewing when I was 17 years old after getting my first sewing machine (as requested) for Christmas. I really wanted to make my own raver wear and the first thing I made was butterfly printed pants. I loved being able to express myself thru the costumes I made and have been ever since!
I have made everything from traditional Halloween costumes (cheerleader, poison ivy, ringmaster, genie etc) to costumes for burning man for myself and all my friends including my boyfriends, to costumes for performers like professional hula hoopers, fire spinners, stilt walkers, dancers, and DJs. Basically, I help anyone who wants to have fun while they look fabulous in their own one of a kind costume.
Some of my more notable creations have been- Steampunk couple including steampunk toy gun, Mad hater that won a
costume contest, Derek from Zoolander, Sun goddess with headpiece, rainbow bright, His and hers Space cadet costumes and so many more!
