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.

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.

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.

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.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.

Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.

Look forward to creating with you all!

Thank You

Ok I literally just ended my lesson with Trivia and I wanted to make sure I wrote this review before I forgot. She is AMAZING. Her personality is so fun to start. No question is stupid and she REALLY knows her stuff. I had a project in mind that I've been wanting to work on for cosplay but I just had no idea how to approach the concept. I had messaged Trivia in advance to see if that was something she could help me with since this wasn't exactly a typical sewing lesson. She responded incredibly quick and said it was something we could do. She was able to fit me into a short notice class and broke everything down for me making what I thought would be an overwhelming project seem so much more simple now. I can't wait to start and I will definitely be in touch with her again the further I progress.
And just one other cool tidbit. I am in California and she is in Texas which I thought just added a little something more special to the lesson.
Thank you Trivia! Can't wait to talk again soon.

Really takes her time to explain ever detail from beginning to end highly recommend her for anyone
