My sewing curriculum is designed so that first time learners will feel motivated to keep on sewing. The first three projects are usually completed within the first 3-4 lessons. After learning how to operate the student's machine, together we will make a draw string bag, a skirt (for a doll, for a student or someone else) and a stuffed animal. These first three projects lay an important foundation; students learn basic and useful skills they will use over and over again as they begin to choose their own projects that we work on together.

I believe that if the student- whether a child or an adult- enjoys sewing and sees what they are capable of from the start, they will be more eager to learn more and take on new challenges.

Currently developing sewing worksheets for children.

Vena was very knowledgeable in all of the areas of sewing I had questions in. She drew on her 15 years' professional experience to give me great pointers for the clothing line I am getting up and running; was patient, and fun! Thank you Vena!
Meret
Vena is very knowlegable about patternmaking and haute couture techniques. Besides, that she also helps me to see exactly were difficulties could come up, so that I wouldn't get into the usual beginner troubles!

As a person, she is calm and positiv minded. If you search for someone that knows a lot, has experience in the industry and it super precise- I can really recommend her!

Christopher N.
I was timid and shy. I could barely speak English and I had no business using a sewing machine let alone sewing together an original piece.
I found Laura on takelessons and decided to give her a try.
4 lessons later, I'm highly confident. Fluent in english, and I can sew together designer pieces that would make anyone's jaw drop.
Laura is my bastion to success, and I highly highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn.
Sandi
Laura helped me create my own pattern/garment from a tunic I already had. I had never taken an online- class before so I was concerned how effective it would be.
I was very impressed with Laura’s patience and instruction. She walked me through step by step and provided me with additional tips and videos that really helped me throughout the project
I highly recommend Laura. 😀
Sylvie
Great instructor!
Laura is patient and knowledgeable.I realy learned alot with her. As an confident beginner,I took a 2 days class.
She took her time to explain me some techniques such as sewing invisible zipper. Highly recommend Laura classes.

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!
