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 teach students from ages 7 to adult. 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.

Tracy B is an amazing and talented instructor as well as having a good sense of humor. I have been working with her for nearly a year. She is very flexible in our scheduling. I have a brain injury so she is extra patient with me and knows how to explain sewing lessons. I highly recommend Tracy for sewing lessons.
Working with Tracy was a pleasure. I’m a male beginner student and she made me feel comfortable and relax considering that this was my first class. She made sure I understood what she was explaining and demonstrating. I will definitely be taking more classes from Tracy.
Great teacher. Very patient and knowledgeable. My granddaughter and I loved our lesson as did the rest of my family who watched and learned. We’re looking forward to our next lesson!
