Hello there!

My name is Mya and I am a very patient instructor and understand that students learn at a different pace, after all everyone is an individual!

Availability changes every week and please contact me for availability.

I received my degree in Geology from Yangon University in Yangon, Burma in 1993. After I moved to New York City in 2005, I earned a M.A. (Geology) from The City College of New York in 2010. I learned crocheting and sewing from my mother. I also took a bauble, bangle and bead string class, Draping I and II classes, and pattern making I and II classes from Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

I’ve been teaching private sewing lesson (since 1998), beading and pearl knotting lesson (since 2009), and Burmese language (since 2014) and I have loved helping my students.
Although trained in standard teaching methods, I developed my own method to fulfill my students’ needs.

I am looking forward to helping new students to achieve their goals!

Ok...First I have to say, I am so pleased to have signed up for classes with Mya. Choosing to take sewing classes with Mya is hands down one of the best decisions I made and will continue to make. She is intelligent, very knowledgeable in her craft (or rather crafts), friendly, considerate, patient, and a great conversationalist. I hands down recommend taking a class or classes with her.

Mya Mya is helping my daughter alter her prom dress. Obviously, my daughter was anxious about it, but with her calm and relaxed personality, Mya Mya immediately put my daughter at ease and now my she feels happy and empowered about this project.

The sewing studio is beautiful, quiet, clean and welcoming. Perfect for immersing yourself on your sewing adventure. We are truly fortunate to have found Mya Mya.

Mya was an awesome teacher! I am/was a complete novice prior to this lesson and, after an hour, she had me confident enough to go out and buy my own machine and start practicing with easy projects. After I get all set up at home and get some practice in, I will most definitely be returning for more lessons! I also love that she sent me home with notes and the practice samples we did so I can remember them later. Great experience - will definitely be back!

So fun and easy! Mya taught me all of the basics and let me practice simple skills to get me started. I brought my own machine but she provided sample fabric to practice on. Lots of hands-on doing. She also has a nice folder with everything you you cover in the lesson so you can remember when you get home. Definitely going back.

I Look forward to taking more lessons with Mya.

I took my sewing project —a tunic— with me and she explained clearly how to adjust the fit, which I’d been struggling with for a couple of weeks (and 3 muslins!). I left our one-hour session ready to conquer my tunic!

She is warm and friendly and is clearly not only an excellent sewist but also really good at teaching.

Thank you, Mya!

I loved my first lesson with Mya. I feel confident to use my machine now as I was a total beginner. I feel like I accomplished so much in our first lesson, and we are going to make a copy of my favorite pair of lounge pants at our next lesson. Mya is patient and relaxed and I really enjoyed our time together.

Mya Mya is patient, knowledgeable, and has her lesson plans and objectives ready. From one teacher to another, I give her an A+.

My daughter had her first lesson yesterday and it was great! Mya Mya was very patient with her and also let her work at her own speed while learning the machine. She’s 9 and she wanted to go slow, then fast, then slow again. I’m glad I chose to use a one-on-one instructor because I feel like my daughter retained a lot more information than she would have in a group class. At the end of a pretty long lesson my daughter didn’t want to leave and asked to stay longer! We will definitely be going back for more lessons.

My first class with Mya Mya was excellent. I had taken a class prior to this and was not feeling confident about my abilities until I met Mya Mya. If you're thinking about sewing and need help. I would encourage you to meet with an instructor first one-on-one before taking a class or online training. The instructor and can help guide you better. I'm so glad I learned about this instructor. You will not be disappointed.

Mya is very patient with novice learners. Both my 12 year old daughter and I have attended class and we both walk away learning new things each time!

Mya has also been very accommodating with my schedule, allowing me the flexibility to adjust my lesson time on several occasions. She has a dedicated space to give lessons that is open and welcoming!

I definitely recommend Mya. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

I contacted Mya in the beginning of January because I was in the process of applying to fashion school and needed help and guidance constructing my design ideas. After I showed her my patterns, fabrics, and sketches, she confidently reassured me that everything would be okay. I came to Mya's home studio three-to-four days a week for three weeks. And during each lesson, she was incredibly patient in explaining sewing terminology, demonstrating techniques, and making suggestions on how to improve my designs. She was so knowledgeable that, at times, I felt like I was taking a college level sewing class. Seriously, I LEARNED SO MUCH! Moreover, Mya was sweet, funny, and incredibly hospitable. One evening, when I arrived to her house with pants wet from snow (because I had spent 1.5 hours digging my car out of my parking space), she gave me temporary clothes to wear while mine dried in front of her heater! No matter when I showed up, she always greeted with a big smile. I truly felt welcomed and accepted in her presence. And, even better, I finished my sewing projects nearly a week before my application deadline!!! THANK YOU, MYA :-D

I am so happy that I found Mya! I had a very enjoyable lesson with Mya at her home. Mya is a very good teacher, with sensitivity to the particular needs of the student. Mya taught me pattern-making. She did so in a way that allowed me to first observe, then practice what I had observed. I came away with a usable pattern to make an item no longer available in stores.

Whether you are new to sewing or need help in developing new skills, you will find Mya able to meet you at your sewing level and you will end the lesson with enthusiasm for sewing and looking forward to your next lesson!!

Mya Mya was great. She was very friendly and welcoming. She was prepared for the session with printed materials and a lesson plan. When I brought a pattern I wanted to work on, she was able and willing to adapt her lesson plan which I appreciated. I have a lesson next week and am looking forward to it.
