I am offering industry level sewing classes and pattern correcting and altering techniques that will cater to your needs. I will be able to teach foundation skills of how to operate a sewing machine, how to use a serger or how to use an industrial sewing machine. I will also teach how to hand sew, follow and understand a pattern and how to finish your work beautifully. I am also going to work with you on your own personal projects.
I teach hands on beginner’s patternmaking and sewing skills that you will need for garment production, arts and crafts and any project that involves sewing. For instance: I can help you make pillows, bags, aprons, stuffed toys and other household items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern.

Wappingers Falls, NY


Want to learn how to knit or even advance your current knowledge?

Since my Nan (grandma for you Non-Brits), showed me how to knit and my childhood best friend Laura introduced me to crochet my hobby has turned into a full-on obsession. I love to create colourful, unique squishy goodness and teach my obsession to others. I love knitting blankets and cardigans. With my classes I aim to help everyone explore their creativity. You will be knitting your own wardrobe in no time!

About Claire

I own a local small crochet business selling womens accessories and crochet patterns. I have now been knitting for 20 years and crocheting for 12. I love teaching others how to create their own works of art and seeing everyone's creativity at work. Every person is different and as such I adapt the

I teach chess in school settings and private lessons. The skill of students ranges from beginner to intermediate. Some of my students have ratings up to 1200. I can teach you at your home, at my home, or a public place like a library or coffee shop. A typical lesson will be an hour and include a quick chess puzzle, a substantive and level-appropriate lesson, and a challenge game with analysis. All lessons are very dependent on student level, and may include only some of those components.

About Josh

Hi! I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. A couple years ago I began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject

I will teach using visual aides such as videos and diagrams. If we meet up I will provide yarn and needle for you to practice with if you do not have your own. The first completed project will be donated. If you have trouble following we will find the right method that suits your learning style.

"I am so happy that I found Mya! I had a very enjoyable lesson with Mya at her home. Mya is a very good teacher, with sensitivity to the particular needs of the student. Mya taught me pattern-making. She did so in a way that allowed me to first observe, then practice what I had observed. I came away with a usable pattern to make an item no longer available in stores.

Whether you are new to sewing or need help in developing new skills, you will find Mya able to meet you at your sewing level and you will end the lesson with enthusiasm for sewing and looking forward to your next lesson!!"

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …
