Hi! My name is Avalon. I have my bachelors degree in fashion design and I’ve been making clothes for almost 10 years but I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember. I started teaching kids how to sew one summer and I’ve been in love with it ever since. I have experience in both pattern making and draping and I own my own business where I make custom designs for customers. I am comfortable teaching students at all levels, so feel free to reach out.

If you have felt like youtube videos don't give you enough guidance in folding Origami, I would be delighted to take you step by step taking things at your pace and level as we explore the craft of Origami together.
I was born in Japan and origami was something that came naturally to me as a child. The love of Origami was passed down to me from my Japanese Grandmother who decorated her room with all of her paper creations.
It's been in my blood and comes as second nature to me however I know how complex some of these folds can be and my goal as a teacher is to help anyone be able to fold anything, while throwing in stories from Japan and Origami trivia!

I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!
I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself. Now I have

GAMING MUSIC FOR PIANO:
This is a special course Ms. Melissa is offering! She is teaching video game music on piano to all those gamers out there!
Ms. Melissa likes to learn video game music in her spare time, from games such as Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Skyrim, and so on.
She understands that a lot of piano students want to learn this type of music, so for a limited time she is offering to skip the introductory classes and get straight to work!
NOTE: This course does not teach the basics of piano (note reading, technique or notation) Ms. Melissa strongly suggests this course for students who already have at least some knowledge of these fundamentals.
NOTE: Can be taken IN CONJUNCTION with regular piano lessons, or on its own!
Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals. She is currently teaching out of her

I give Lily my highest recommendation and always look forward to her coming and teaching my daughter. The relationship that they have formed is invaluable, beyond sewing. We are so appreciative and grateful to her."
I took my sewing project —a tunic— with me and she explained clearly how to adjust the fit, which I’d been struggling with for a couple of weeks (and 3 muslins!). I left our one-hour session ready to conquer my tunic!
She is warm and friendly and is clearly not only an excellent sewist but also really good at teaching.
Thank you, Mya!"
