I am a mother of two boys and i have been married for 15+ years. I started sewing as a means to an end. I have more than 20 years of sewing and design experience. I am self taught and very determined. I am comfortable and experienced in teaching students ages 6 and up.

About Ruqayyah D.

My name is Ruqayyah and I love sewing and fabric. My strengths are combining the fabric and design for the perfect match! I have over 20 years of sewing experience. I am 100% self taught and I am very comfortable teaching small aged kids to adults. I have a 7 year old that I am currently teaching to sew. I was in the fashion retail industry as a retail buyer for more than 20 years. I worked closely with designers and industry leaders to develop concepts and make big buys for large big box and vertical retailers. I even developed a line that i had manufactured (I can take you through the dos and don'ts if you are interested in going down that route.)

What you can learn from me:
- 20 years of advanced sewing
- combining fabric and design (an important concept to deliver the right look)
- sewing basics (basic stitch, zippers, hems, etc)
- get acquainted or reacquainted with your sewing machine (threading the sewing machine and/or serger)

Babylock Aria (my everyday machine)
Janome MC 4800 QC (my backup ...love this machine)
Brother CE7070PRW (the lightweight machine I travel with)
Kenmore (vintage machine)

SERGERS:
Singer 5-Thread Professional
