Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

I have been sewing for 25 years (Since I was 7). I can teach you anything you want to know from basic beginner sewing to the most advanced techniques. I can also show you how to draft your own patterns (including children's and menswear).

I have both regular machines and sergers in my studio and can teach you how to sew both non-stretch and stretch fabrics.

"My grand-daughters (10-14) visited Crafty Table during the Thanksgiving Holiday of 2014 when they traveled to Chicago from Phoenix, Az. They were introduced to hand-stitching & how to thread a sewing machine. They made wallets& pillows from a wide variety of fabrics & stuffing material. They arrived hesitant of their skills but left capable of describing their projects in-depth. Using millinery terms. They even helped me to construct a beautiful pillow that I treasure from that day. The Crafty Table Sewing Day with their Chicago Grandma ranked higher than Navy Pier in their memory banks!"
