Lisa was wonderful. Very patient, detailed explanations, and went above and beyond. I’ve felt intimidated by sewing and even the process of setting up my machine but she was able to illuminate that process. This lesson was worth every penny and I’m looking forward to the next one.

Hello! I love teaching sewing because it is such a lost art. I offer basic sewing skills, how to read patterns, apply zippers, and pattern construction if you want to learn how to bring your own design to life. I teach all ages but especially enjoy teaching kids to give them something productive to do besides scrolling on their phone. I offer ¨sewcials¨ where adults can come together, enjoy a glass of wine, sew, and enjoy conversation. I am very adaptable and understand that ever student has their own needs.

I started sewing at the age of 10 when I made an apron for Mothers Day in my Girl Scout troop and ever since then I have been in love with making clothes.

Kelly did a great job showing me how to thread a sewing machine and load a bobbin, and get started on my first project. She has excellent cameras to show you close ups of her machine and to demonstrate what she is doing.

I can teach the basics of sewing with intro lessons coaching you through making our own simple projects with no stretchy fabrics.
I also teach lessons on making corsets to more experienced sewers-from intermediate lessons making a mockup and fitting it to make your first corset to advanced lessons on drafting your own special corset patterns and making them a reality.
I can also teach lingerie making, formal wear, and tech wear to more advanced sewers, from basic bralettes and underwear, raincoats and athletic wear, to embellished luxury garments.

About Sarah

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …

Basic Sewing Stitches for Beginners

When it comes to sewing, if you’ve only familiarized yourself with the basic running stitch, then it’s time to broaden your horizons. There are many different types of sewing stitches that allow you to achieve certain goals. For example, if you want to sew an eyelet, you’ll want to master the blanket stitch, but if you’re looking to add a clean finish to a raw edge, go for a zigzag stitch using a sewing machine.  In our hand and sewing machine stitch guide, we’ll review the man …
