I have taught fashion sewing in the NYC garment district for 11 years. Students ranged from teens to adults, aspiring designers, those interested in better-fitted clothes or in saving money with simple alterations. The method we use is very simple working on basic projects to increased skills as projects progress. I love sewing because it’s therapeutic and rewarding. Getting a compliment on something I’ve made is rewarding especially when followed with, “Thank you. I made it.” Sewing truly is something you can control when the world feels out of control.

When I teach classes it is so important to me that everyone completes a project no matter what. Learning a new skill takes requires willingness, a great teacher with patience and a cheerleader.

Experience

Sewing Instructor
Mar 2003 - Sep 2011

Sew Fast Sew Easy, Inc

I taught in the Garment District, New York City where ambitious F.I.T. and Parsons applicants sort us out to learn to sew. One of my intermediate students was one of the finalists for the hit TV show, Project Runway, and another student started her own fashion line. Everyone in between simply wanted better fitting clothes, or to unleash their unique creativity. Wherever you are, I teach skills and you bring your talent. Sometimes people discover that sewing isn't as easy as they think but it's my job to get you through a complete project. You can quit afterward :-)
