About Annelouise M.

I have been sewing ever since my wonderful Auntie Anne lent me her manual sewing machine one summer. I caught the sewing bug and followed my passion all the way to Ohio State University. Since then, I sew clothes for myself, clients and even have an online store where I custom design clothes.

A new passion of mine sharing these skills with my students. Learning to sew can seem daunting and scary. But fear not. I am very skilled at breaking down this knowledge into bite sized chunks.

I specialize in teaching Beginner Sewing. I have a 16 lessons beginner sewing plan that will give you the necessary tools you need to begin your sewing journey.

Here is a basic breakdown:

Beginner Sewing Course Part 1
(know your sewing machine) (5 lessons)

Beginner Sewing Course Part 2
(commercial Sewing patterns) (5 lessons)

Beginner Sewing Course Part 3
(basic sewing) (6 Lessons)

Book an initial 30 minute lesson where can discuss your sewing dreams and goals.

Your first step into sewing your own clothing is just a lesson away.

Let's have some sewing adventures together.

Anne-Louise is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She explained things so well during the lesson that I didn't have any questions. Learning to sew seemed so overwhelming. It's so great to find someone that is able to help me along the way.

Great Teacher !
Anne-Louise explained everything I wanted to learn. Prior to the class I stated what topics I would like to cover and she did just that. she used examples and drawings to make my understanding much vivid. I look forward to having more classes with her.

Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.
