About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

About Carol
Hi my name is Carol (CJ) I have been sewing for fifty something years! Taught myself at the age of nine! By the time I was in junior high taking home economics
class I was already make 3 piece suits! I always enjoyed being creative and making something! I had a dressmaking/alteration shop for several years making many band uniforms for local colleges and high school choir dresses. Replaced many zippers, hemming dresses and pants! I do believe my favorite was making dance recital dresses for those little toddlers and beauty pageant dresses from a sketch! About 8 yrs ago I began quilting which was a new outlet for me to be creative! Learning to look at the values in colors and combining new color schemes and patterns! After making several quilts I started taking pictures and making my own patterns and reproducing the photo in fabric! Fiber
Artist! Its enjoyable to use different medias!

About Bridget
It's a great day to learn something new! Hi my name is Bridget and I would love to be able to assist you in learning the art of sewing. whether you are a beginner or not, learning is fundamental in everything we do. all you need is a sewing machine, sewing supplies, time, and a big dose of patience. and we will hit the sewing room run running.! Lets enjoy what we do and how we do it, by bringing forth your skill set and my love and passion for teaching and sewing, to the next level. I have 30 years of sewing skills and 19 of those years I have taught people from all age groups to learn how to sew. No I had no schooling, in sewing my education was in commercial art and advertising design but I had always wanted to know how to sew. so one day I was gifted a sewing machine and made all the dresses for my wedding and haven't stop sewing since
. so I hope we can enjoy each other's company as we explore the endless gifts in sewing.

About Sarah
I'm a life-long learner and avid seamstress. I have been sewing since I was a young child and learned from my grandmother basic hand sewing. From there I learned other techniques through books, trial and error, and hands-on classes how to sew professional looking garments, quilts and bags.

I love everything about sewing from the ideas to the creation. It is a slow process and can be a lot of fun if you take your time and can enjoy the process. I want to teach others this amazing skill.

About Shelby
I learned to sew when I was 9 years old and it has proven invaluable in my life. Whether it was bonding with my grandma making things for people at church or making my own costumes for plays, I was always ready to learn something new. I was lucky to get the opportunity to work in the costume shop in my college theater, and learned many new techniques (not to mention getting to work with much higher quality fabric and machines).
I was introduced to crochet by a friend in high school who taught me, and have learned from various online tutorials and books to create the things I wanted since learning. Though I know how to knit, I'm always drawn back to crochet because it's much faster to master and, I find, much easier.
I would love to pass on my knowledge in a fun, carefree environment. If a student isn't having fun, they're definitely not
going to remember the lesson. I make sure that students feel respected when they ask questions, and if there is still confusion, finding a new way to explain the concept.
I look forward to meeting new students and sharing these wonderfully freeing hobbies.
