Knitting is a wonderful skill! From the practical -- such as scarves, sweaters, or socks -- to the artistic, learning to knit gives you a hobby that reduces stress, gives the ability to make your own gifts, and even earn a little pocket money! I have been knitting for over 20 years and selling my knitted creations for about 10 years. I can get you started with knitting!

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

I teach embroidery, hand sewing and machine sewing to students of all ages. Beginning students can learn hand sewing stitches that are used in conjunction with machine sewing to finish items.

Embroidery is like painting with a needle and floss. Students can learn basic embroidery stitches to use on pre-printed kits or to create their own drawings.

I came to Tracy with some very specific questions concerning the assembly of a facing on a lapel and a slight adjustment on a sleeve sloper. She was direct and to the point and helped me with exactly what I needed. Would have no hesitation whatsoever in going to see her again with my next question. Thank you!

Very helpful. Clear explanations. And went above and beyond to make sure I understood. Thanks

Laura is great! Very patient and always trying to make it easier to understand the concepts, I have done 2 online classes with her and already looking forward for other ones to come. Highly recommended!
Christopher N.
I was timid and shy. I could barely speak English and I had no business using a sewing machine let alone sewing together an original piece.
I found Laura on takelessons and decided to give her a try.
4 lessons later, I'm highly confident. Fluent in english, and I can sew together designer pieces that would make anyone's jaw drop.
Laura is my bastion to success, and I highly highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn.
Sandi
Laura helped me create my own pattern/garment from a tunic I already had. I had never taken an online- class before so I was concerned how effective it would be.
I was very impressed with Laura’s patience and instruction. She walked me through step by step and provided me with additional tips and videos that really helped me throughout the project
I highly recommend Laura. 😀

I started sewing at age 8 (thanks mom!)

I have a degree in technical theatre with an emphasis in costume design and technology. I design costumes for community theatres, opera companies and drag queens.

I helped teach sewing and costuming during my degrees. I believe in starting beginners with familiarizing themselves with their machines and how to read patterns.

I would love to share my years of experience designing, sewing and crafting with you!

"Sam is a truly fantastic teacher. I am a clinical counselor and very picky with giving praise to anyone in the helping and teaching professions, but Sam, who (among other qualifications), also has a psychology AND teaching background, has a gift of making children feel almost instantly accepted, cherished, and excited. He is patient, warm, strategic but flexible, always adjusting to my daughter's needs in an instant. Sam provides that perfect combination of inciting commitment and a disciplined approach to learning while allowing a child to grow in his or her own pace and have fun while doing it that most children need, and I can whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone."
