Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been teaching sewing for 30 years and my students have gone on to creating their own clothing by use of patterns. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain knowledge of how to thread a sewing machine, tension, bobbin, stitches available according to your specific machine or ones I have available in my studio. As time goes on you'll be able to cut and sew a specific project's desired from patterns. I love working with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!

I'm multi-media artist who offers various pottery, painting, fiber art (fiber processing, various types of felting, natural dyeing, yarn making, rug making, sewing, crocheting, knitting) jewelry, candles, and soap making and canning workshops in my art studio. We also have an onsite mini farm with llamas, alpacas, sheep and peacocks. We shear our animals annually and use our processed fiber in our workshops. Students learn the ancient traditions of naturally dyeing fiber with local plants and how to spin into art yarn with spindles.
