As with crocheting, I can teach a range of students, from those with the beginning desire to learn to students wishing to hone specific techniques. My favorite techniques include in the round and double pointed needles, because who doesn't want to learn to avoid more sewing?

About Rhiannon

My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same. I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knif

Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

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'm a Home Economics teacher with 30 years crochet experience. I have skills and strong foundation in handicrafts and specialize in fundamentals of crochet. I typically use inspirational ideas around me and modify them according to my students' needs. I structure my lessons in a way the students will learn what they want to learn without feeling bored.

I'm available for eager students of all ages and experience levels. I would love to work with you and help you learn to master the basics of this needlework. I will also help you build a crochet portfolio that you can use any time as a quick reference guide (and inspiration as well) so you can comfortably make your very own DIY crochet projects!

About Loudel

Mabuhay! My name is Lou. I'm a teacher from the Philippines and now living in the US. I teach Tagalog to people who wants to understand and speak the language better. Tagalog is the basis of Filipino, the standardized national language of the Philippines. While still living in the Philippine

Loudel is awesome!! She is so helpful and creates a safe environment that allows you to not be afraid to mess up and correct it. 10/5 rating! Maraming Maraming Salamat po!
Parker S.
My son has truly enjoyed his Tagalog classes with Ms. Lou. He now enjoys watching The Filipino Channel with his grandparents. Such precious moments!
Sean
She's amazing. If you're serious about learning the language and not just memorizing words and phrases to impress people when you visit The Philippines, Loudel is the instructor you're looking for. She teaches the language as if she were teaching a formal class, starting with the basics of the alphabet and the history of the language, and slowly incorporating more advanced concepts and grammar. There is also a huge stress on proper pronunciation. Helpful assignments/homework are provided to reinforce concepts, and she tests both writing and speaking ability at certain intervals as well.

Loudel is a VERY professional and effective teacher. Because of these lessons, I can honestly say that I can not only speak/write/read/understand Tagalog, but I understand how the language works, which makes learning additional content much easier.

I strongly encourage anyone serious about learning Tagalog to choose Loudel as their teacher. She'll make it happen.

P.S. Also, she's really fun to learn from. Loves to joke and insert bits of linguistic and cultural trivia from time to time. Great sense of humor and very friendly!

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
