I specialize in teaching young students, typically 8 years and up. I am extremely patient and positive with beginners. I also enjoy the challenge of helping more experienced students bring their own creations to life. Lately, I've had several male students making and altering shirts.

I've been sewing as long as I can remember and have been teaching since 2009.

About Tracy B.

I teach beginning, intermediate and advanced sewing. I have been sewing since before I can remember, for over 40 years. I teach sewing after school for several local private schools and privately at home for 10 years. I also teach for the City at the Cultural Arts Center. I have been fingerprinted and background checked by 5 schools, BSA and the city. I have child abuse prevention training with the Catholic and Episcopal Churches. I have also taken BSA Youth Protection Training.

I teach students from ages 7 and up. Males and Females. I have a great deal of patience with young and inexperienced students. With older or more experienced students, I enjoy helping them bring their vision to fruition.


The first sewing lesson is typically how-not-to-break-the-machine, where the student learns about the sewing machine. Lessons on fabric and pattern layout are incorporated while working on individual projects. We typically progress from projects with only straight lines - pillows, simple skirts or drawstring bags, to projects that incorporate curves - shorts and shirts. Beginner students use 100% woven cotton for their first projects, slowly adding fabrics that are more difficult to use. Hand sewing and embroidery is frequently incorporated into projects.

I came to Tracy with some very specific questions concerning the assembly of a facing on a lapel and a slight adjustment on a sleeve sloper. She was direct and to the point and helped me with exactly what I needed. Would have no hesitation whatsoever in going to see her again with my next question. Thank you!
