A Better Way to Learn

I keep it simple. Instead of hammering you with words you do not understand. I show you the way I learned how to crochet. I start off small and basically learn my way as I continue to crochet. I am still learning but I had to start somewhere.
I am a military veteran that love arts and crafts. I enjoy learning how to do different things like crocheting, making jewelry, drawing, learning foreign languages. I love to try anything when it comes to something I never considered learning how to do. Crocheting took over me and I stay on YouTube

I've been sewing my entire life and while I'm new to teaching in a formal setting I've been helping my friends and classmates with sewing since I was in high school. I can teach you basics like how to sew a button and we can work our way up to sewing an outfit.
I can teach you: building (sewing a item of clothing from scratch), altering, tailoring, repairing, embroidery, beading, prop making, hand stitching, machine stitching, how to use a serger, how to read and use patterns, how to plan a project, how to draft a basic pattern, beginner upholstery, and what I call "make it work" sewing tricks for when you don't have fancy equipment or supplies.
If you have a specific project (I'm looking at you, cosplayers and diy Halloween enthusiasts) or if you want to learn a skill that you will use for the rest of your life. I can help.

For my first class we started on my socks. I got set up and I went home with my “homework” and a sense of accomplishment. I am on my way to finish my first pair!"
