Private Sewing Teacher

Students can expect a Systematic Approach to Sewing, what I fondly call the SASsy way. We will start with foundational topics like the Anatomy of the Sewing Machine, building on that foundation one skill at a time. I've learned that remaining motivated to sew often holds people back so I will also teach you how to plan out projects and how to build a sewing habit that helps you see consistent results and keeps you motivated to sew!

About Timpla

Hello! You want to learn to sew? I'm Timpla and I can help you!

FEEDBACK FROM MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

"It was great! I learned so much about my sewing machine."

"Had a great time Timpla! I was able to hem my daughter's skirt and repair a shirt sleeve. Looking forward to next time."

"I definitely benefited from the class! Thanks so much!!!"

I LOVE helping my students conquer their "fear" of the sewing machine, which unleashes excitement about their potential to sew unique items for themselves and others.

I've been sewing since I was a young girl, learning from my grandmother.

My experience includes sewing women's and girl's apparel, home decor, and quilts. I decided to start teaching private and group lessons after receiving many requests from friends and acquaintances.

I look forward to helping you develop the

skills you need to tackle any sewing project.

I am a communications designer, I graduated with a bachelors from Pratt Institute 2019.

I especially love the process of designing because of where you start and where you end. The future can be quite exciting.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Sewing Teacher

I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

About Kathleen

I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself.

Now I have 10 years of continuous experience sewing for myself, friends, and family. I've made seasonal pillow covers, tiny shirts for my little cousins, and lots of dresses for my Mom. (How the tables have turned!)

I would love to help you discover how fun and easy sewing can be. If you're a curvy woman, like I am, buying clothes that fit can be super frustrating. That's why I went from sewing costumes to making day-to-day clothes for myself. It can seem intimidating at first, but most women just need some basic adjustments on every pattern to make them

fit perfectly. I promise your wardrobe will never be the same again!
