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!

I was having issues modifying patterns. Vena helped me understand how pattern making works and how to resolve my issues. She is knowledgeable and a natural teacher. What could have been complicated and difficult to learn was easy and straightforward. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

"Dan is fantastic. He identified key areas in which I needed improvement and suggested drills to directly address those issues. From the very first lesson, it was clear that Dan possesses a deep love of billiards and has carefully considered the best ways to impart his knowledge to others. The overall quality of my game (and my enjoyment derived while playing it) has risen dramatically as a direct result of working with him."

"I Look forward to taking more lessons with Mya.

I took my sewing project —a tunic— with me and she explained clearly how to adjust the fit, which I’d been struggling with for a couple of weeks (and 3 muslins!). I left our one-hour session ready to conquer my tunic!

She is warm and friendly and is clearly not only an excellent sewist but also really good at teaching.

Thank you, Mya!"

"I'm not one to write reviews but here goes nothing. I consider myself a pretty good pool player but wanted to sharpen my game. after a few lessons I must say I became a better pool player than I thought I was. One thing I liked was that when he showed me something it was repeated until I got it. He was a great teacher and you can tell he loved the game. I gave him five stars because he was knowledgeable and patient showing me different shots and techniques over and over till I perfected them."
