I have been sewing for 16 years and love to help others learn this awesome craft! I have a degree in Fashion Design and can teach sewing- including how to use a serger and cover stitch machine, pattern use, pattern alterations, creating your own patterns, draping, and hand sewing.

Students can have a totally customized experience with me. You pick what you want to learn. We can arrange the lessons to learn specific skills such as serging, hemming, or using a pattern, or with specific projects in mind like making a pillowcase, purse, blanket, or dress. I can also help with fabrication knowledge and learning to recognize what fabrics are good for what projects. The options are unlimited. Want to make a T-shirt blanket to keep all those memories, learn how to hem your own clothes, make your Halloween costume or a dress for your doll, or learn how to make curtains?

Sewing can be so much fun and it is a joy to see a piece of fabric turn into something remarkable. In today's world, the internet is a great tool and much can be learned from it but nothing quite beats having a teacher there to actually see and help you. I will be there to work hands-on with you or your student so that you, or they, have the best learning experience.

Miranda is great! Her knowledge is not limited to the techniques needed but she teaches why the technique is used and how the various tools perform their functions. Wonderful teacher!

Whether you are new to sewing, or need help learning more advanced skills, Miranda is amazing. She has the ability, and patience to explain a concept, then walk you through how to apply it. For my lessons, we focused on grading sewing patterns, which is an abstract concept that takes time to get your head wrapped around. Now I'm confident in my ability to apply the skill, and with a little practice, I will be able to master making changes to patterns.

During our last lesson we went over different seams, and started building a garment.

She is highly recommended, and I look forward to future lessons.
