Overview

I have been sewing since age 9. I have been sewing for other people with lots of reviews on Thumbtack.com and I have a facebook page Sew for Sure. I am a retired special needs school bus driver who works very well with children and adults. On many occasions I have tutored men, women and children over the years with them walking away with lots of new information to help them create their own styles and ideas. My years of experience have enabled me to become very proficient in all aspects of sewing from costumes to wedding dress and everything in between! I truly enjoy my craft and would love to teach my abilities to others!! Because of good reviews I was named Wedding specialist of the year on Thumbtack.

Patricia is a wonderful instructor and an amazing seamstress. I had a great experience today. I learned how to cut patterns as well as placed them unto the fabric. Patricia even went out her way to give me one of her sewing machines so I can practice at home. I will recommend her to any and everyone.

Awesome experience! I was able to get my machine in top condition since I had some parts flipped, it wasn't working right. I was also able to finish the first burp cloth in a stack, hem a dress, hem some selves, and switch out a zipper on some shorts in under 2 hrs. Will definitely use Patricia again and look forward to seeing her soon. I'm very pregnant and on restrictions so I appreciated Patricia's willingness to come to me so I didn't have to lug my sewing machine around. Patricia is friendly and personable. The sign up and scheduling experience was a little rocky as I wasn't able to figure out how to schedule on the mobile site, but we figured it out in a couple of days and Patricia was always friendly and flexible.

I thought it would be a very good learning experience for my daughter to learn to sew and I am so glad I we went to Patricia to do this. She was very kind and a great instructor, my daughter loved her and can't wait to go back. My daughter got to sew her very own skirt and it is one of her favorites now. While there I was able to get to see some of Patricia's work and it was truly amazing. I intend to go to her for any sewing I may need in the future.

Patricia created a gown for me when I was in a pageant for the Miss Teen California title. It was beautiful! I felt like a Disney princess and got so many compliments. In the pageant world, dresses are in constant need of alterations and changes, so when discussing how pricey it is to tweak and fix various outfits, Patricia offered to teach me how to do simple sewing alterations myself. I am now able to make my dresses perfect without the help of a high-end seamstress, although when a job gets really tough, I know this lady can handle it! So glad I found her!!
