Sylvia was great during my first session. She was very patient and understanding being that I was new to adobe illustrator. Her step by step approach was very helpful.
William
I took my first class with Sylvia this week and she is a very good teacher. She helped me learn a new skill on first class by showing me than having me do the same tasks. She is patient, straight forward in her instructions and a clear communicator. I have signed up for 3 more classes because of my first class with her

Sylvia is an excellent teacher. I was starting from scratch, and she was able to quickly teach me how to do numerous important tasks relative to what I was looking to accomplish. I recommend her without reservation.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I have been designing my own clothes for almost as long as I can remember. My personal preference is classic/retro/avant garde. I can help you find your own voice as a designer.

If you need to work on one area such as use of color, fashion drawing (not as hard as it sounds), pattern making etc. Or if you are just beginning. I start where you need me to.

About Anne

I am a mom of two littles and work from home making pattern and technical specification packages for fashion designers. I teach sewing, pattern making and fashion design lessons from my home studio in Broomfield. I have been sewing since I was 7 years old and while I sometimes use commercial

Christopher N.
I was timid and shy. I could barely speak English and I had no business using a sewing machine let alone sewing together an original piece.
I found Laura on takelessons and decided to give her a try.
4 lessons later, I'm highly confident. Fluent in english, and I can sew together designer pieces that would make anyone's jaw drop.
Laura is my bastion to success, and I highly highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn.
Sandi
Laura helped me create my own pattern/garment from a tunic I already had. I had never taken an online- class before so I was concerned how effective it would be.
I was very impressed with Laura’s patience and instruction. She walked me through step by step and provided me with additional tips and videos that really helped me throughout the project
I highly recommend Laura. 😀
Sylvie
Great instructor!
Laura is patient and knowledgeable.I realy learned alot with her. As an confident beginner,I took a 2 days class.
She took her time to explain me some techniques such as sewing invisible zipper. Highly recommend Laura classes.
