About Beatrice
I have over 20 years’ experience. I have been working for major fashion brands companies in NYC. I am experienced with working with beginners, intermediate and all levels. I am offering industry level sewing classes and pattern correcting and altering techniques that will cater to your needs. I will be able to teach foundation skills of how to operate a sewing machine, how to use a serger or how to use an industrial sewing machine. I will also teach how to hand sew, follow and understand a pattern and how to finish your work beautifully. I am also going to work with you on your own personal projects.
I teach hands on beginner’s patternmaking and sewing skills that you will need for garment production, arts and crafts and any project that involves sewing. For instance: I can help you make pillows, bags, aprons, stuffed toys and other hou
sehold items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern.
I will work closely with you to make sure you understand the project and to make sure you properly construct a quality finished project.
I have been sewing since I was in 3rd grade and was making doll clothes for my Barbie dolls and clothes for myself by the time I was in 9th grade. I also used to work closely with a Tailor/dressmaker as an apprentice during my summer holidays in 10th grade.

Students are expected to provide all tools and materials.

Recommended duration is 2 hours.

Kaitlin was very patient with me and helped me to understand the basics of crocheting. Taking a class in person instead of online is definitely the way to go as crocheting is a very hands on and detail oriented task!

This teacher was so pleasant. her customer service skills makes it easy to learn so quick. I only wanted to know ho to treat my new machine and I was able to complete that successfully in this short session.
I will recommend her to anyone who needs a skillful, calm and friendly instructor.

Worst in teaching than her?Certainly, You will find millions of teacher around the world.
Best in teaching than her? Probably, you might find a very few teachers that can meet this criteria.
Like her? You will never find a teacher like her. Not only she knows sewing , then she knows how to teach people to sew. I have seen her turning students to CEO. I have seen her changing life of her students by giving them the opportunity to sew for themselves, their families or even make money from sewing.
She is very knowledgeable, joyful, honest and very professional.

About Barbara
Hello! I'm Barbara.

I am an entrepreneur, business owner, and designer. As a naturally gifted seamstress with some high school and college experience, I've been sewing for 15+ years now and I love it!

My mother first noticed my interest as a child when she saw me making my Barbie dolls clothing out of my old t-shirts. She purchased me my first sewing machine that I still own and use to this day. I've been sewing ever since!

Sewing is fun and easy when you have a great instructor. With me, you will have fun expressing your creativity while learning basic sewing skills at the same time.
