I have been sewing for 25 years (Since I was 7). I can teach you anything you want to know from basic beginner sewing to the most advanced techniques. I can also show you how to draft your own patterns (including children's and menswear).

How to use speciality machine feet to make sewing straight much easier.

I have both regular machines and sergers in my studio and can teach you how to sew both non-stretch and stretch fabrics.

About Anne

I am a mom of two littles and work from home making pattern and technical specification packages for fashion designers.

I teach sewing, pattern making and fashion design lessons from my home studio in Broomfield.

I have been sewing since I was 7 years old and while I sometimes use commercial sewing patterns I prefer to make my own, I always have.

I have a degree in Pattern Making, Fashion Design, and Product Development. Adding a lot of standard technique to my own methods.

In sewing, I can teach you anything from the simplest basics to how to sew stretch fabrics, and much more. There is no need to be afraid of any particular fabrics or machines, book a lesson and we'll go over whatever you need.

In Fashion Design I can teach you the basics of fashion drawing and show you how to translate those designs into patterns and

sewn garments.

Want to learn how to alter clothes to make them fit better? Or how to upcycle pretty much anything.

Need just one lesson? OK :)

My goal as a teacher is to help you achieve your goals. I know that we all learn at a different pace.

-Studio Equipment-

Juki and Brother Sergers

My first lesson went great! Anne showed me everything I needed to know to help me begin practicing on my own with confidence. She does have two small children who were well behaved, but if distractions are a problem, I would mention that before taking your first lesson. At the end of my two hour session I had sewn my first bag and now have something to show my friends and family! Thanks, Anne.

Vena is a consummate professional. My son wanted to learn some basic sewing skills, as well as learn how to make clothes and accessories. In the first 1.5 hour lesson at our home, he completed a simple zipper bag. Over the course of six lessons he made a messenger bag, dress shirt and started on pants - which he finished while we were on vacation. Vena is an expert and also knows how to tailor her lessons to her individual students work style, needs and goals. I give her my highest recommendation. My son will be working with her again to learn how to design his own creations. Five stars all the way.

I think Vena is wonderful. She is patient, warm, supportive and knowledgeable. She can help you complete specific projects (make a dress or a stuffed animal), help you become a better sewer or teach you the art of pattern making. Also, I should mention, she work professionally in the fashion industry and give lots of great insight into how garments are designed. Love Her!

My expertise in sewing always inspires creativity and passion within students, and the ease with which i guide them to explore their own creativity bring fun to the lessons. Having over 25 years of custom couture tailoring and teaching has given me a vast experience in order for me to equip any student with the requisite knowledge needed to tackle any sewing project.

About Kodjo

Most people simply call me Joe. I have a bachelors in Fine Art, an MBA and been making clothes for my clients for over 25 years. I taught many people sewing and they've gone ahead to tackle various projects on their own to their own disbelief. Creativity comes to me naturally and with a background in figure drawing and painting, my knowledge of anatomy of the human figure helps a lot in translating it into designs for all figure types and sizes. I have handled many interior design projects also, so all these experiences equip me with immense knowledge to transfer to those who want to learn all about sewing, whether as a beginner, an intermediary or advanced student.

I can sincerely attest to Kojo's examplary work and professionalism. He has been my clothes designer for years and great teacher in his field. I can't think of any better tutor and creative arts person who is an eventor in his field.

About Janet

Are looking to increase calm energy? Learn something new? Heal an issue and feel better? Look better?

Hello there. My experience with the QiGong is one of beginning to pass on the great training I have had. Not only in the QiGong. It is the strength and beauty of movement in other martial arts, yoga, nature hikes.

*Please note...I am in the process of getting another video intro by me. Signing up for a series of lessons though will most likely answer all questions though. Healing movement...questions answered at a rate of a couple a week...additional material provided if you you would like.

My background with the arts, holistic practitioning, home education based on waldorf model, and even clothing design and making enhance the interaction we have.

Bringing forth from past experiences to you. This movement helps with weight i

ssues, actively helps eliminate back issues, and can help to eliminate other physical issues.

I look forward to working with you. In a way that you can express to me as well any goals further than an authentic QiGong practice to start.

Sincerely,
Janet

I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

About Kathleen

I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself.

Now I have 10 years of continuous experience sewing for myself, friends, and family. I've made seasonal pillow covers, tiny shirts for my little cousins, and lots of dresses for my Mom. (How the tables have turned!)

I would love to help you discover how fun and easy sewing can be. If you're a curvy woman, like I am, buying clothes that fit can be super frustrating. That's why I went from sewing costumes to making day-to-day clothes for myself. It can seem intimidating at first, but most women just need some basic adjustments on every pattern to make them

fit perfectly. I promise your wardrobe will never be the same again!

I've been sewing my entire life and while I'm new to teaching in a formal setting I've been helping my friends and classmates with sewing since I was in high school. I can teach you basics like how to sew a button and we can work our way up to sewing an outfit.

I can teach you: building (sewing a item of clothing from scratch), altering, tailoring, repairing, embroidery, beading, prop making, hand stitching, machine stitching, how to use a serger, how to read and use patterns, how to plan a project, how to draft a basic pattern, beginner upholstery, and what I call "make it work" sewing tricks for when you don't have fancy equipment or supplies.

If you have a specific project (I'm looking at you, cosplayers and diy Halloween enthusiasts) or if you want to learn a skill that you will use for the rest of your life. I can help.

About Kathren

I'm a grad student at George Washington University who just moved to the DC area from Chicago, and I'm originally from Texas.

I'm a maker who specializes in sewing but I dabble in many other media. I learned everything I know by choosing a project and learning what I needed to to complete that project in a way that I was satisfied with. I have very high expectations of myself so I'd say I am pretty good at what I do and proud of the work I have done. I've also made a lot of mistakes so I know how to help people work through problems.

I'm a massive nerd who loves helping other nerds realize their nerdy dreams so let me help you!

Before you can sew your own clothes, create crafts, and take on sewing projects, you have to learn the basic sewing stitches. From hand-sewing stitches to seam finishes, sewing instructor Cathy G. is here to help you master the basics...  Modern sewing machines have all but eliminated the need for hand sewing. Gone are the days of constructing a garment by hand with a needle and thread. That being said, there are still many places where hand-sewing stitches are necessary for a high-qu …
