Hi! My name is Avalon. I have my bachelors degree in fashion design and I’ve been making clothes for almost 10 years but I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember. I started teaching kids how to sew one summer and I’ve been in love with it ever since. I have experience in both pattern making and draping and I own my own business where I make custom designs for customers. I am comfortable teaching students at all levels, so feel free to reach out.

An overall great experience. Avalon is extremely relatable and explains even the most tedious things extremely well. Can’t wait to take more classes with her! Will definitely be a regular.

Omg I so love the way she teaches. I was in need of learning how to sew from someone else but she did not help me the way she should’ve. So I found out about Avalons Sewing class and I loved it. Highly recommend you all to take a class or two with this wonderful human being

I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

Vena was very knowledgeable in all of the areas of sewing I had questions in. She drew on her 15 years' professional experience to give me great pointers for the clothing line I am getting up and running; was patient, and fun! Thank you Vena!

Vena is very knowlegable about patternmaking and haute couture techniques. Besides, that she also helps me to see exactly were difficulties could come up, so that I wouldn't get into the usual beginner troubles!

As a person, she is calm and positiv minded. If you search for someone that knows a lot, has experience in the industry and it super precise- I can really recommend her!

Having been a professional instructor for almost 20 years, I teach a form of Astrology that is termed "Western Vedic Astrology." This system uses both the modern Western Greek/Persian methods combined with the ancient original ancient East Indian Vedic methods. In this way the student, in a short period of time learns to evaluate a person beyond mundane psychology to the psycho-spiritual level.

The fusion of both systems creates makes astrology inspiring, fulfilling and enjoyable to learn because it is encompassing, fun and enlightening to the student. The outcome is an understanding of the planets and the cosmos at a deeper level than ordinary Astrology can afford.

The purpose and outcome of learning Western Vedic Astrology is to become a well trained and knowledgeable astrologer who not only able to assess the present and understand the past, but able to see the future as well.

About Deva

My serious Vedic astrological and spiritual education began some decades ago. I follow my intuition and try to be analytical at the same time. My karmas and desires compel me to act, just like anyone else. However, we are not only a ball of feelings and desires. We possess a mind and intelligence

Deva Roberts is an awesome astrologer! I've had my chart done twice before and this one was by far the most thorough and helpful. Deva is brilliant! I'm very grateful that I found him to do my chart during this challenging time of my life. I now have more clarity and direction.
Chennie Sudana
Having lived in India for 8 years, I've visited many astrologers. Most of them gave bad advice or incorrect predictions. When Deva did my chart, I was a little skeptical at first. Then I realized, that he wasn't here to predict my future like a fortune teller but guide me on the right path instead. He is an astrologer and life coach in one. After taking his classes, I now have a better sense of direction in my life. His strategy has helped me become more self-aware and become more accepting of myself.
Deri
I have been a student of Deva’s for about a year now, I take lessons with him in person. Deva has helped deepen my understanding of astrology immensely! I have learned so much from him and have excelled greatly in my astrology practice. I recommend taking classes with him if you are serious about learning astrology. Astrology is very intricate and it takes years to learn. I have found that taking lessons in person has helped me learn faster and understand things deeper than studying by myself. Or even taking classes online, as long as there is a teacher involved to talk to and provide guidance and insight. Deva is a great teacher! He is very knowledgeable and intuitive, which is perfect because astrology is both a science and an art, it takes both knowledge and intuition.

She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor."
