Private Sewing Teacher

I started sewing at age 8 (thanks mom!)

I have a degree in technical theatre with an emphasis in costume design and technology. I design costumes for community theatres, opera companies and drag queens.

I helped teach sewing and costuming during my degrees. I believe in starting beginners with familiarizing themselves with their machines and how to read patterns.

I would love to share my years of experience designing, sewing and crafting with you!

About Jessica

Music and the arts have been a large part of my life since I was a child.

I have performed in numerous operas, musicals and plays. Favorite roles include the Witch in Into the Woods, Agathe in Der Freischutz, the Countess in Marriage of Figaro, and Fastrada in Pippin.

I have a degrees in Opera Directing, Vocal Performance and Theatre Arts. I started teaching acting classes in 2001, and have coached voice since 2010. I have studied voice with James Gardner, former head of opera at Julliard School of Music, Matthew Oglesby, vocal area coordinator for the WTAMU School of Music, and Darlene Wiley, head of voice department at Butler School of Music, UT and William Lewis, dramatic tenor with 35 years experience singing at the Metropolitan Opera.

I direct operas, design costumes, teach whenever and whatever I can, and love spending

time with my cat.

Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.

Note: Although students learn at different rates, the above results are expected, if taking lessons 2hours a week, for 5weeks for all levels.

About Lily

I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For 9years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

We couldn't have imagined a more excellent instructor for our daughter. Lily has such a kind and pleasant demeanor. She is intelligent, patient, and is literally the best teacher that I have seen work with my daughter.

I give Lily my highest recommendation and always look forward to her coming and teaching my daughter. The relationship that they have formed is invaluable, beyond sewing. We are so appreciative and grateful to her.

Lily is very kind and knowledgeable. She was able to give constructive advice on projects I was having trouble with. Going to continue with her.

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!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. We start with the fundamentals of hand-sewing and make our way up, all this with a mixture of fun, listenting and patience.

About Alexandra

I love learning and teaching languages and although I studied law I really prefer teaching languages (I speak 5 languages) and sewing (another of my favourite hobbies) love travelling and photography.

I will be happy to answer the questions which arise in between your one-on-one lessons. In short, I will do everything I can to increase your rate of language acquisition.

It goes without saying that I love to teach! I have an easy-going personality and a positive attitude. Learning such a beautiful and multifaceted language as Spanish or Romanian will be fun with me. I love travelling, I have hosted many exchange students, so I have developed good communication and creativity skills.

I will encourage your interest and curiosity into the different cultures by using amusing topics during the session, which will automatically imp

rove your experience.

I am able to communicate with students at a very personal level . I am very passionate and enthusiastic to get them to learn. I will also promote study habits.

I have a lot of nice material and is interested in what people have to say and their needs. I am friendly and kind; I try to correct students making sure they don't feel embarrassed. I makes people feel comfortable, and encourages them to participate and learn, -even the shy ones. I enjoy the class as much as you.

Alexandra was professional and kind. She very patiently helped me through some technical problems with the camera on my laptop. She immediately recognized the problems I was having on my crocheting project and got me on the right track. She’s friendly and put me at ease right away. A very pleasant and informative session.

Private Sewing Teacher

**Although my availability does not list the weekend, I am flexible for some weekends. Contact me!**

Lessons I offer:
-how to set up and use a sewing machine
-sewing basics
-sewing tips and tricks
-going over how to read and use a store-bought pattern + completion of project
-pattern-drafting basics (basic tote bag, skirt, top, some homewares - sorry no menswear patterns) + completion of project, etc.
**Please note: I am NOT offering in-depth pattern-drafting lessons.

About Sabrina Jacqui

I first learned how to sew from a wonderful woman teaching in-home sewing lessons. Her one on one lessons helped catapult me into the skilled sewer I am today.

I have been sewing since then for about 15 years now. I started my own clothing brand in high school where I created every item by hand (pattern-drafting to sewing). I then went on to receive my BFA in Fashion Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design where my construction skills advanced. I am currently working on design commissions in NYC.

My sewing teaching methods are unique in that I have both sides of the equation to offer--structural/basics and creative/fashion. I am happy to work with any student on what they choose to focus on and what they are excited about gaining from the lessons. If you're unsure what you want to learn, we can work together on a small p

roject to get you going!

Hi Everyone! I went to Sabrina to learn some basic hemming and alteration techniques. But she was so great I decided to take a few more lessons to learn some construction techniques, as well and now I feel like I can make some basic clothes for myself. She was so great!

Sabrina was the most incredibly knowledgeable, patient and helpful teacher. I had just a rudimentary understanding of sewing but with a few short lessons she helped me so much to do so many things. Her knowledge of everything to do with sewing and fashion is just astonishing and her work is impeccable. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn more about sewing or construction.
