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.

Omg I so love the way she teaches. I was in need of learning how to sew from someone else but she did not help me the way she should’ve. So I found out about Avalons Sewing class and I loved it. Highly recommend you all to take a class or two with this wonderful human being

Hi all, I'm an experienced sewer with a degree in Textiles and Design! I've been sewing and teaching for over 20 years and love what I do.
Because I've worked with children and created lesson plans I know exactly how to teach with clarity and work according to the needs of my students.

I was having issues modifying patterns. Vena helped me understand how pattern making works and how to resolve my issues. She is knowledgeable and a natural teacher. What could have been complicated and difficult to learn was easy and straightforward. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Vena is a consummate professional. My son wanted to learn some basic sewing skills, as well as learn how to make clothes and accessories. In the first 1.5 hour lesson at our home, he completed a simple zipper bag. Over the course of six lessons he made a messenger bag, dress shirt and started on pants - which he finished while we were on vacation. Vena is an expert and also knows how to tailor her lessons to her individual students work style, needs and goals. I give her my highest recommendation. My son will be working with her again to learn how to design his own creations. Five stars all the way.

I think Vena is wonderful. She is patient, warm, supportive and knowledgeable. She can help you complete specific projects (make a dress or a stuffed animal), help you become a better sewer or teach you the art of pattern making. Also, I should mention, she work professionally in the fashion industry and give lots of great insight into how garments are designed. Love Her!

Hey, my name is Mariah Rembert a wife and a mom of 2 beautiful boys with one more on the way. I’m the creator of handmade jewelry which I have been building and perfecting my skills for about 3 years now. I enjoy learning and teaching how to make jewelry in the easiest way possible. I have experience with refurbished pieces, stackable arm bracelet, simple earnings, and waist beads. My style is very afro-centric with a twist of the bohemian ”look”. I do understand the frustration it someone has when you're just learning new skills, which is why I inspire to teach others who are a beginner jewelry maker.

About Mariah

Please try my class I'm great for beginners, adults, and children. I was inspired to start teaching my own class by family and friends who enjoy my projects and ask me to share some of my skills. I typically make pieces for my children fundraiser at their school who seem to be happy customers. I cu

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …
