Hello! I love teaching sewing because it is such a lost art. I offer basic sewing skills, how to read patterns, apply zippers, and pattern construction if you want to learn how to bring your own design to life. I teach all ages but especially enjoy teaching kids to give them something productive to do besides scrolling on their phone. I offer ¨sewcials¨ where adults can come together, enjoy a glass of wine, sew, and enjoy conversation. I am very adaptable and understand that ever student has their own needs.

Kelly did a great job showing me how to thread a sewing machine and load a bobbin, and get started on my first project. She has excellent cameras to show you close ups of her machine and to demonstrate what she is doing.

"The teacher was knowledgeable about all aspects of sewing and was able to tell me how to finish off one of my projects that I brought with. It was a jacket and skirt. I needed help mostly with the jacket and mainly understanding the finishing instructions for the jacket. I sewed some in the hour during the lesson and then Terry showed me on the instructions what to do at home. She then asked me to bring a new sewing project that we could start together when I come in two weeks. I would highly recommend Terry to any level of sewer wanting lessons. She is also a very kind lady as well."

Basic Sewing Stitches for Beginners

When it comes to sewing, if you’ve only familiarized yourself with the basic running stitch, then it’s time to broaden your horizons. There are many different types of sewing stitches that allow you to achieve certain goals. For example, if you want to sew an eyelet, you’ll want to master the blanket stitch, but if you’re looking to add a clean finish to a raw edge, go for a zigzag stitch using a sewing machine.  In our hand and sewing machine stitch guide, we’ll review the man …
