About Lily
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.

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).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- 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
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

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.

About gabriella
I am extremely passionate for all kinds of food especially healthy food and sweets I have worked in restaurants as the pastry chef and as a line cook , I love teaching what I have learned in culinary school and in professional kitchens . Any one can cook and be proud of their skills in the kitchen as long as they have basic knowledge of what works together. I also have worked with disabled children in schools teaching basic things such as cookies and simple cake. I absolutely love seeing how someone can grow so fast in the kitchen making beautiful creations with some guidance, I have trained dish washers to become line cooks its incredible to show someone how amazing they can be as long as they believe that they can.

About Patrick
I have always had a passion for food. I was brought up in my grandparents' restaurant in a small town in the Black Forest. My father is a chef and my mother is a confectioner. Growing up, l was always surrounded by amazing, gourmet food, and I quickly developed an interest in experimenting with different ingredients and cooking techniques. Through this experimentation, I learned the true artistic form food can take, while experiencing first-hand the effort and knowledge required to bring such beauty to light.

My 7 year old daughter had been asking to take sewing lessons for months. She's learned so much in a short amount of time. She’s learned both hand sewing and machine sewing techniques and is looking forward to her next lesson.
