Vena is a consummate professional. My son wanted to learn some basic sewing skills, as well as learn how to make clothes and accessories. In the first 1.5 hour lesson at our home, he completed a simple zipper bag. Over the course of six lessons he made a messenger bag, dress shirt and started on pants - which he finished while we were on vacation. Vena is an expert and also knows how to tailor her lessons to her individual students work style, needs and goals. I give her my highest recommendation. My son will be working with her again to learn how to design his own creations. Five stars all the way.

I think Vena is wonderful. She is patient, warm, supportive and knowledgeable. She can help you complete specific projects (make a dress or a stuffed animal), help you become a better sewer or teach you the art of pattern making. Also, I should mention, she work professionally in the fashion industry and give lots of great insight into how garments are designed. Love Her!

My sewing curriculum is designed so that first time learners will feel motivated to keep on sewing. The first three projects are usually completed within the first 3-4 lessons. After learning how to operate the student's machine, together we will make a draw string bag, a skirt (for a doll, for a student or someone else) and a stuffed animal. These first three projects lay an important foundation; students learn basic and useful skills they will use over and over again as they begin to choose their own projects that we work on together.

I believe that if the student- whether a child or an adult- enjoys sewing and sees what they are capable of from the start, they will be more eager to learn more and take on new challenges.

Currently developing sewing worksheets for children.

Ariann L.

Sunnyside, NY

Bgcheck Background Checked


Hello! My name is Ariann and I have 14 years of sewing experience. I began taking sewing lessons at 10 years old and have made every type of garment you can imagine over the years. I also received a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC where I learned how to sketch, create patterns and sew all kinds of materials and really bring a garment to life from conception to construction.

I love to sew, whether it is a pattern I draped, or personalize a store-bought pattern and I want to teach others how to do the same and wear clothes that are a true reflection of their style.

I am comfortable teaching all levels, so even if you have never touched a machine before, please feel free to reach out!

"My experience as working along with Sid as his Chess Aide at various school locations; is he has excellent classroom management skills which in turn the students grasp the lessons more quickly. Also, the students are more engaged in the lessons as well. He is aware of making sure all students understand how each piece moves and knows what to do at the end of each lesson before they play a game. He praises each student on their ability and knowledge of chess and helpful with others who are still learning the basics. As a chess aide and helper for Sid, I thoroughly enjoy working with someone who has great enthusiasm!"
