Hello! I'm Barbara.
I am an entrepreneur, business owner, and designer. As a naturally gifted seamstress with some high school and college experience, I've been sewing for 15+ years now and I love it!
My mother first noticed my interest as a child when she saw me making my Barbie dolls clothing out of my old t-shirts. She purchased me my first sewing machine that I still own and use to this day. I've been sewing ever since!
Sewing is fun and easy when you have a great instructor. With me, you will have fun expressing your creativity while learning basic sewing skills at the same time.
Currently, I offer private sewing lessons to adults and children who are interested in one-on-one private lessons. I do private sewing lessons in my creative room at my place or I can travel to my clients as well.
I've created a basic sewing curriculum to easily teach my clients how to sew by hand or machine. I also have multiple sewing projects that adults and kids will love to make.
Currently, I am a sewing instructor at 4 different elementary schools in Westchester.
I teach students how to thread their needle, tie a knot, straight stitch, zig zag stitch, and whip stitch. The classes are one-hour long for students ages 6 through 10 years old.
Each school works on a different project and students learn the basics of garment construction as they sew projects that are made with easy to use materials and simple instructions.
