About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

About Amber
I am a professional freelance artist, and owner of Leola Studios. I have been doing custom artwork for over 15 years, and have several contract jobs with businesses on my resume. I have an Associates Degree in Fine Arts/Animation from Academy of Art University.

I specialize in photo realism, and 90% of the private commissions I get are portraits. However, I work in a broad range of styles and mediums, from line work to abstract to sketch, with charcoal to paint to clay. I love expanding my knowledge and trying new things, but above all I love creating!! I feel that imagination and expression through art/music/literature are crucial to a person's development, and this is something I pass on to my daughters, and frequently fundraise for, in an attempt to keep art programs in our schools.

I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledg
e, so after having so many people ask me to show them how to draw, I began teaching. I've taught one on one, and classes large in size. I have also taught young children, up to age 98! I am very patient and don't mind a slew of questions! I want to help students become the best at their craft.

Art is my passion and so important in our world, with proven benefits! I'd like to think with teaching, I'm helping to keep it alive, even if just in my small way.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

About Angikar
Angikar Sarkar (aged 31 years) is professionally a software engineer and an arts and music aficionado. He is originally from India and completed till 3rd year in fine Arts from Indian Academy of Fine Arts. In 2009, he came to the States to peruse graduate studies from Texas and since 2013, he is staying in north Phoenix, Arizona for professional connections. His wife, Samayita, is the biggest motivation behind his arts. Whenever he gets spare hours, Angikar involves himself in fine arts, poetry and music. Acrylic and water color are his specializations, but he also finds immense pleasure in charcoal art, sketching, pastel touches and tempera. He believes that music and rhythm exist everywhere in this universe, may be in different forms and shapes. As an artist, he wants to explore that symphony and correlate that rhythm with lives, myths,
mythologies, objects and nature. Symphony brings happiness and happiness breeds excellent art works which is where his arts are coming from.

“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit”. Ralph Emerson once said.
It is true, indeed!
It is actually impossible to portray the actual beauty of the nature in a mere canvas with a few colors and brushes in hand. The vastness is more than that. This is therefore a very miniscule effort to depict the beauty of the nature.

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness...” and Wilderness Chapter I and Wilderness Chapter II try to tell the same thing.

“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from its loveliness arises”- Fifty Shades of Green exactly speaks about the same thing. Even everything is green, still there is no monotony and each and every hue is visible.

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature” and rose is the queen among them. It is more beautiful while its scent is mixed with nocturnal enigma and Night Rose tries to portray the same.

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all”. The peace lies in Autumn and Serenity Chapter I canvas over the same thought.

I have loved taking photos since my first photography class in high school. I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments all over the world. There's a picture around every corner and the best camera you have is the one that is in your hand. My Photos have been in Diesel magazine, featured on a Nat Geo's photographers page and in recent calendar publications. I shoots a Nikon, Canon and Sony systems and has been doing classes for about 4 years with great reviews.

About Natalia
Hi! My name is Na, short for Natalia. I began drawing when I was 13 years old. I didn’t think was very good at first but I was always excited to run and show my mom when I felt proud of one. I love drawing portraits. It’s my favorite thing! It’s hard but anyone can do it if you take it step by step. I am currently a commission artist that paints and draw portraits for people. I love drawing entertainers because everyone recognizes them and they just think it’s awesome!
I’ve done art show around Dallas, TX where I take my work and hang showcase them and sell them.
Art for me is something that lights me up and keeps me out of my mind to just focus on getting the lines perfect or making sure the colors compliment each other.
I am looking forward to teaching what I have learned in my almost 10 years of experience.
