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.

I offer patient guidance and encouragement. I see knitting as a process of growth and development- moving forward at a pace that the student is comfortable as we cultivate confidence and technique.

About Kim

I am a hoarder - most notably of yarn and can be seen knitting or crocheting in 90 degree weather. I began my craft journey as a child when i was taught Crochet by the other woman in my fathers life. I learned to knit later - but I would hone both these skills well into adulthood looking for a wa

My substantial areas of expertise are women and men patternmaking, draping, garment construction (sewing), tailoring, technical drawing, concepts sketching, from basic to advance skill set. I am also a big fan of incorporating recycled / repurposing materials such as leather, suede into garments.I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps students to realize their full potential.

Hasaan is a very patient teacher--which is definitely a requirement for online sewing/pattern making lessons. We worked on my bodice sloper, and he was able to quickly identify the fitting issues I had. He shares best practices, tips, and terminology all throughout the lesson so that you learn as much as possible. Will continue with him.
Lauren Stein
I had a tight time schedule to finish a summer project before I went in for surgery and Hasaan was very sensitive to that. He was able to teach me new skills in pattern making and cutting that made the process easier/ more accurate as well as sewing techniques. I would say my experience with him was very positive and he was always cheerful and and in a great mood and helped me out a lot with my project. I would definitely recommend using him for lessons.
Betty L.
Hassan was a pleasure, he was patient and was able to teach my daughter was she wanted to learn. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a teacher in this field.

donna gave a very easy to follow and straight forwards lesson, i came in with no editing experience and after about an hour i was well versed in my software and could edit a video alone.
Patricia
Great communicator. I was hesitant about signing up for ‘online’ lessons; however, I was able to walk through the steps guided by a very patient teacher. Donna is fantastic, and I look forward to our next class. I could've easily spent the entire day online with her.
Lisa
Donna is a wealth of astrology knowledge. I found our sessions together to be informative, fascinating and useful for my overall understanding of astrology as a student. I recommend Donna!

Tired of paying for alterations? Interested in giving your wardrobe a DIY makeover? Whatever your needs, my classes cater to your goals.

I learned to sew in a high school Costume Design class when I was 15 and I haven't stopped since. In 2013, I received a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design after which I started a cottage business making women's clothing and accessories.

My skills are specific to pattern-making, machine sewing, hand sewing, basic alterations, and how to start a fashion business.

I believe that with a strong sewing foundation you will find endless capabilities.

My classes are offered to children to adults, all ages welcome! I look forward to hearing about your sewing goals!

"Coach Siddharth was my daughter’s chess coach this past spring. He coached the beginner students and was extremely patient and kind while the students got up to speed with the rest of the group. He is very knowledgeable and his passion for the game can be seen through demonstration of various strategies he teaches. This was my daughter’s first experience with chess club. She learned so much and had her first check mate!"

"Erin is an outstanding instructor. She is very, very knowledgeable. I have a pattern and it was poorly written. She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor."
