*Currently offering ONLINE AND ON LOCATION lessons*

Online sewing lessons are a little tricky but as Tim Gunn once said, let's make it work!. Any questions you may have for current projects or projects you'd like to work on, I can do my best to assist through our screens.

**Lessons I offer**
-how to set up and use a sewing machine
-sewing basics
-sewing tips and tricks
-going over how to read and use a store-bought pattern + completion of project
*Please note: I am NOT offering pattern-drafting lessons.

***IMPORTANT***: I have a strict policy in which I require a brief video chat meet-up prior to any in-person lesson. Thank you for your understanding.

About Sabrina Jacqui L.

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've been sewing for about 16 years now. I started my namesake brand in 2009 where I designed and created every item by hand (pattern-drafting to sewing). I went on to receive my BFA in Fashion Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design where my construction skills advanced. I'm currently working one of the Alterations Manager's at David's Bridal as well as assisting in costume design for Catherine Zehr at Ballets with a Twist. I am also working on a brand re-launch!

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!

I only took a couple of lessons from Sabrina, just to enhance a few sewing skills, but she was great. Very knowledgeable!

She cancelled on my tree minutes before our session. I didn't have time to hire someone new. This has ruined my holiday. I stayed home to finish a sewing project and now can't because it's too late to hire someone new. It's too late to fly back home. This sucks. I better get my money back.

Sabrina taught my daughter in-home, she was always on time despite the distance and was very patient and respectful. We have a few other children and she was extremely welcoming to the little ones looking in on the lesson. She taught my daughter how to use a store-bought pattern and some sewing basics.

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.
