Have a specific project in mind, or just want to pick up a new skill? Beginner level students will learn basic sewing stitches, both by hand and machine, as well as basic information on how to select fabric for a project. Beginner level projects will be selected from a variety of pre-selected patterns, such as bags, pillows, aprons and stuffed toys. More advanced students will learn to modify patterns, and eventually create their own, as well as learning higher level finishing techniques and how to work with more challenging materials. A sewing machine can be provided for the student during on site lessons. Materials fee may apply.

About Molly
Raised in New York city, I attended Stuyvesant High School, the jewel in the crown of the NYC public school system. Traditional academic achievement was not enough for me however, and I went on to study fashion design, honing my artistic skills at Drexel University. Call me a renaissance woman or a Jill-of-All-Trades, I've been employed in fashion houses, graphic design firms and visual effects shops. I've also made my way freelancing as a photographer, web designer, and writer. In addition to this variety of creative skills, I have a Bachelors in Business Administration, and training in Quickbooks. I recently scored a perfect 170 on the GRE verbal, and obtained admission into several competitive doctoral programs in Clinical Psychology.

I realize it is not enough to merely have skills or intelligence in order to be a tutor. One must
be able to convey them to the student in a way that is effective and (hopefully) enjoyable. From the helping students prepare a portfolio for undergraduate admission, to teaching the basics of essay writing, I have a warm attentive attitude that sets students of all ages at ease. My teaching style is focused on the learning style of the person I am working with, tailoring the exercises to help achieve specific goals.

Molly was understanding in scheduling conflicts and worked with me so we could get our lessons done. She made sure that I understood each thing that we went over and gave me homework that helped me get some practice in that I needed. I made a blanket for my sister who just had a baby and it is a wonderful keepsake!

Thanks Molly!

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.

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).

- 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
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits

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.

I love to sew and greatly enjoy teaching the craft. I have been sewing since I was 7 years old, when I was taught by my Grandmother. A FIDM Fashion Design graduate, I worked in the garment industry as a pattern maker and junior dress designer. I then went on to work for 14 years in the Motion Picture industry in costume design and stylist work.

I enjoy working with children, guiding them to use their creativity in the process of sewing. Lessons can be tailored to the students needs, from learning how to use the sewing machine to the best way to approach sewing different fabrics and patterns. From fashion to interior design, I am happy to guide you to a finished product.

About Renee
I grew up in Los Angeles surrounded by a family of artists and designers. Following my career in fashion and costume design, I began making one of a kind silver jewelry. I have been working with fine silver for 8 years, selling my design pieces in art galleries and online.
I have always tried to share my passion for all things artistic with my two children. By volunteering to run art projects at their school, I discovered the joy of teaching. I decided to combine that with my sewing expertise to help children and adults realize their creative vision. I like helping students explore their ideas while making a project come to life on the sewing machine.

Note: Although students learn at different rates, the above results are expected, if taking lessons 2hours a week, for 5weeks for all levels.

About LILY
I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For six years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

Custom classes designed to fit your specific needs. Lessons for the beginner and intermediate sewer who needs some help.

Each class will be designed personally for you.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

I am a professional seamstress and I have created for you a course for beginners that teaches you how to sew basic items in just a few weeks, at your own pace. I also have prepared a kit with notions and fabrics to make it easier for you.

However, if you wish to take intermediate or advanced lessons, you just need to specify what you would like to focus on.

I am French and I have studied sewing and fashion in France where I got 5 diplomas in this industry. I have also studied clothing and costume making at a University in Utah.

I have worked for fashion designers, and even as an embroiderer, in Paris and in London as well. I also have worked in a theater costume shop which was really fun and finally I have worked as a wedding gown alterationist for several stores in Paris, London and in Utah.

This totals 12 years of professional experience in sewing, besides giving private sewing lessons in France before moving to Antioch, California.

About Rose
Hello, I am Rose from Antioch. Well, I am originally from France. I've just been imported by my sweet husband Jeff in March 2017.

I teach French and sewing and even sewing in French if you want ! That's ideal if you want to go on an internship or even work in the fashion industry in Paris !

To tell you more about my passion for sewing, I believe I must just have been born with the talent of sewing. I remember my mom running after me as she was scared that I would pock my eyes with her needles... Already at that age I was stuck to the TV obsessed with the Parisian fashion shows at each fashion seasons. But you know what ?

Interestingly enough I am not so much into fashion anymore because I have discovered the importance of wearing the right type of clothing specifically made for each of us. You know, sewing clothing stays the same
whether we are into fashion or not, it really doesn't matter. I'd be happy to share more about that with you.
I also enjoy sewing house items and I like to figure out easy and fast ways to sew these items as well as clothing for children.

I'd be happy to meet you at your house or in mine or online, as you wish.
If you are looking to gain basic sewing skills fast then you found the right person because I have created a course that is specifically designed for that. First we'll learn everything about your sewing machine. Then you will be able to learn how to draw a pattern to cover a book of your choice, sew a zip, buttons, a sewing bag, a simple pin cushion and a little dress that includes pockets as well as bias binding on the armholes. At the end of this few weeks course together you will receive videos of the whole course that you will be able to watch over and over for free as you keep perfecting your new skill. The only thing is that these videos are still in French ;-) My French students have shared with me how happy they were with the details of that course.

And just with these basics you will be able to sew hundreds of items ! Isn't that cool !? Plus, to make it easier for you, I have prepared all the supplies for you in a kit for an extra cost. Ask me about it.

If we meet in person, a minimum of 2 hours per session usually works best.
As for online teaching I have a very good webcam that shows great close up details.
