Teaching since:

I first learned how to sew from a wonderful woman teaching in-home sewing lessons. Her one on one lessons helped catapult me into the skilled sewer I am today.

I have been sewing since then for about 15 years now. I started my own clothing brand in high school where I created every item by hand (pattern-drafting to sewing). I then went on to receive my BFA in Fashion Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design where my construction skills advanced. I am currently working on design commissions in NYC.

My sewing teaching methods are unique in that I have both sides of the equation to offer--structural/basics and creative/fashion. I am happy to work with any student on what they choose to focus on and what they are excited about gaining from the lessons. If you're unsure what you want to learn, we can work together on a small project to get you going!

Hi Everyone! I went to Sabrina to learn some basic hemming and alteration techniques. But she was so great I decided to take a few more lessons to learn some construction techniques, as well and now I feel like I can make some basic clothes for myself. She was so great!

Sabrina was the most incredibly knowledgeable, patient and helpful teacher. I had just a rudimentary understanding of sewing but with a few short lessons she helped me so much to do so many things. Her knowledge of everything to do with sewing and fashion is just astonishing and her work is impeccable. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn more about sewing or construction.

Sabrina was a great teacher and was able to explain things to me more clearly than most professors I've had. She knows womenswear like the back of her hand and really helped me improve my sewing and construction.
