Rosa L. Los Angeles, CA

I've been teaching for more than 3 years.

In these lessons you will learn the basics of the sewing machine and we can choose any project you would like to work on after a few basic sewing tests.

Intermediate students can skip the refresher if they want and get right into pattern drafting, cutting and sewing.

You will learn design terminology and I will step in at every question you have as well as throw in tips and tricks that may work best for your projects.

Let's get started!
