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.
I am a production seamstress for a small US based company and produce the shawls, scarves, and other items we sell.
I worked as a sewing room supervisor for a semester. I supervised the students and made sure they used the machines correctly and safely. I also assisted them if they had difficulty on their projects.
I was a summer camp teacher for elementary school kids. I was their main teacher throughout the day and took them to the pool, field trips and did other at school activities with them.
