Levels taught:
Learn to make the one-of-a-kind articles of clothing of your dreams. I will help you:

- Collect the necessary tools and learn how to use them

- Learn to read and work with a sewing pattern. I can coach you through just about any pattern you’re trying to make.

- Learn how to thread and use a sewing machine

You should plan to purchase the following supplies before our first lesson:

- A simple sewing pattern (I can help you find a good one suitable for a beginner before we meet)

- Enough fabric, thread, and other supplies to make the garment

- I can bring my own sewing tools and sewing machine for you to try, if you don’t have your own. This is a great way to help you decide whether this pastime is for you before you invest money in the necessary tools. If want to purchase your own tools before we get started, that’s great too!

About Eliana A.

I love to sew clothing, and I want to teach you to do what I do so that you can experience the same joy and satisfaction that I do from engaging in this amazing pastime. I am especially interested in working with beginners, and with anyone who is interesting in learning how to work with a sewing pattern. Learning to read a sewing pattern will unlock a vast world of creative opportunities and I would consider it a privilege to be the one to hand you the key.

I think what I like most about sewing is that it’s creativity grounded by mathematical precision. It’s a place where you can let your imagination run wild yet at the same time you feel fully in control. And at the end of the process, you get a one-of-a-kind outfit to wear that is exactly to your taste. Win!

I have been sewing for just over two years, and I’m entirely self taught based on following a few tutorials online and sewing my way through scores of sewing patterns. My favorite things to make are dresses, but I have experience making pants, skirts, shirts, shorts, and pajamas. I have dramatically reduced my clothing expense budget since I started sewing, and my wardrobe has never been as colorful or as varied as it is now. The fact that I’ve not been sewing my entire life positions me well to teach other beginners and others who have maybe made a thing or two, but want to take their craft to the next level. I was where you are not too long ago. Let me inspire and show you how to do what I’ve learned to do in only two years.

I am friendly, down to earth, and methodical, and I love to share my knowledge with others. If you’re interested in learning how to make your own clothes, it would be my great honor to be your coach. I fully believe that anyone armed with the appropriate basic knowledge and tools can learn to do this. Let’s connect and I will show you how!
