I am bubbly, outgoing, patient and FUN! I love sewing and teaching. If you have always wanted to learn to sew or take your sewing to the next level I am the teacher for you!

As an Army wife we could not afford certain luxuries like drapes. I learned to sew in order to make each of my houses feel like home. I also made bows and dresses for my daughter. Sewing has become my passion. I am also an early childhood educator, I love teaching.

Teaching sewing classes brings my two passions together.

Let’s start with the obvious first: when learning how to sew, you develop many skills such as understanding a pattern, operating a sewing machine or getting to grips with the specialist terms. But there’s so much more to sewing!

Sewing has taught me so many life skills and invaluable lessons:

Planning
Good things take time
Attention to detail
Sometimes things don't turn out the way you had planned or hoped

If you pick me as your sewing instructor I promise to teach you how to sew and how ...

"Larianne is a fantastic teacher. She started teaching me back in 2017, and because of her, I have my Etsy job. I make baby blankets, infinity scarfs and kids Hood Hats. My client loves the result. I had the chance to participate in many of her craft shows, and the experience was terrific. Her passion for crochet became an inspiration to me. Now I love to crochet and do many things for my daughter and me. Right now, I am working on a full-size blanket, and Larianne is helping me getting the pattern right. I wish I can show pictures. Thank you very much, Larianne."

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …
