Hi there! I have been teaching sewing (garments, crafts, home-dec, quilts and much more) for 7 years at a local shop where I was the manager. I am comfortable teaching all ages and all skill levels and I can adjust my teaching methods as needed to fit each student. Whether you want to learn to read, trace and construct a pattern or you want help figuring out how to create something only in your head, I can help you create it!

First lesson. Amanda is very knowledgeable and patient. As a complete novice that was very much appreciated. I learned a lot about troubleshooting tension problems on day one. Looking forward to learning more!

Having Amanda as a teacher made learning to sew a lot easier. She is super patient, has neat and different ideas, and is really nice.
