Private Embroidery Teacher

This is perhaps my favorite subject to teach. There are such a variety of things you can do with the most basic of stitches, which students can then build upon depending on their interests. My goal for my students to walk away with a confidence in creating their own designs, with techniques tailored to their specific aesthetic goals.

*No machine embroidery.

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

Private Embroidery Teacher

I am fun and entertaining, and I respect every ability level. I have had projects that did not go well and I have figured out how to fix them. I am patient. I know how to meet you at your ability level. I am creative, not only with thread and needle, but also with problem-solving. I have experience with cross stitch, needlepoint, basic hand-sewing, and many embroidery stitches.

About Susan

I was a high school teacher for twenty years, including a few years when I taught basic embroidery and sewing skills to high school students for art credit. I am an excellent teacher, very flexible and accepting, and I know how to make learning fun. I am excellent with a needle and as a teenager, I

This is not a machine embroidery class. Get ready to move beyond the basic cross stitch (by hand). Let me coach you on specialty stitches such as satin, queen, eyelets, Rhodes, French knots and more. Let me repeat, this will not be a machine embroidery class, every stitch will be by hand.
I've been cross stitching since 1983 and teaching it for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll learn how to organize your material for easier sewing, master basic stitches, and as time goes on you'll be able to tackle complicated stitches and designs. I specialize in counted cross stitch, but also have experience with redwork, drawnwork, Bargello, pulled thread, hardanger, and canvaswork. Typically, I use The Cross Stitcher's Bible by Jane Greenoff but can recommend other helpful resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I’m really enjoying my lessons with Dawn, she’s a great teacher and very patient with me. She explains things in an easy way to comprehend. Dawn is also very knowledgeable about teaching on Zoom and makes sure I can see what she’s explaining, switching camera views with ease. I’m so glad I signed up for these sewing lessons!

My first lesson was super exciting!! I have zero knowledge about sewing machines. Dawn went over the parts and was very patient with me. I’m really looking forward to learning how to master this new skill!!

Hand Embroidery is a great way to get started in hand stitching. We can start with basic stitches and work up to more difficult skills. I can help beginners start an easy embroidery sampler and can also challenge experienced embroiderers with advanced stitches.

Lisa has been such an awesome quilting teacher! I came in as a complete beginner and she has very patiently helped me gain more and more quilting skills and knowledge. She makes the lesson fun, interesting and I always leave excited to quilt. I would recommend her to anyone looking to quilt and sew-- adults and kids.
Katie
Lisa is a great teacher! I began the embroidery lessons with zero experience and after three lessons I feel like I have the basics down well enough to do several projects. Highly recommend.

Embroidery is my favorite subject to teach. It offers the student endless creative possibilities. There are amazing machines that enable you to stretch your imagination beyond just sewing to decorating and personalized branding. You will learn how to hoop and set your machine for the best embroidery experience.

Lily was very patient and took time to explain everything to me. She made sure to answer all the questions I had. Will definitely book another session.

Lily is an incredible teacher! I went from barely knowing how to thread a bobbin to completing my first lined jacket in a little over 4 months! Lily is patient, kind, and has great attention to detail and teaching style. Lily will introduce you to everything from basics to complex techniques with ease.

"Lily, by far and away has exceeded mine and my wife's expectations. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable. We are in the process of opening a embroidery and screen printing store and Lily was very helpful with eliminating some of the road blocks we have faced over last month. It was only an hour but I felt that we accomplished a lot in that 60 minutes. My wife has accomplished a bunch of shirts in the one day since our lesson. With eliminating some of the road blocks she had encountered, she was able to finish a project without frustration and wasting hours. We look forward to next weeks lesson. I rarely give reviews and I am not doing this to be nice. I truly want to give LILY the Props she deserves. She immediately makes you feel very comfortable and never makes you feel dumb. We highly recommend her services."

"Lily is wonderful. She is patient, knowledgable, professional, and knows how to use technology better than most people I know. She is always giving me tips to use that any manual doesn't mention. She has a way of making everyone feel comfortable around her - like my husband. Virtual learning does work well if the right person is running the show and giving the lessons. Lily is that person for me!"

"Lily is a great instructor. She knows her craft well. She is patient, friendly and has a great smile and laugh that helps makes her student comfortable and at ease thus making learning fun. Lily has the knowledge to help anyone with sewing, embroidery, machine embroidery and more. I highly recommend Lily as an instructor for whatever area you are trying to learn from her huge arsenal of expert techniques.

Lily is helping me to become proficient using my embroidery machine. She immediately taught me a few tricks to getting my machine to do what it is suppose to do without much effort. She has in one lesson given me tons of information and help to get my embroidery hobby started properly. It's awesome to have one on one assistance right in my home so I don't have to take my heavy machine anywhere.

I'm disabled and having a service like this one available is invaluable. I have to keep my mind working and busy, and this helps me tremendously. Thank you LILY and TakeLessons for helping me to fulfill my goals!"

"Dawn was giving embroidery lessons to my 10 yr old daughter over summer. Every week, over the course of 8 weeks my daughter worked on a new project or new stitch. Dawn was very patient with her and my daughter enjoyed the lessons a lot. Dawn got her so much interested that she diligently finished her homework and was always looking forward to her next class."
