I have learned a great deal about sewing in the last 25 years some of which I hope to share with you. I hope to help you complete a professional looking, finished garment or pattern of your choice. You will feel more confident in all your future sewing endeavors. You will look at sewing with an eye that can figure things out with patience and perseverance and enjoy doing it.
I have been sewing for about 25 years now . My ability and love for it has grown with each experience. I have gone to school for fashion design and worked in the garment industry. My main growing experience has been my self taught lessons which brought me to more sewing focused jobs. Since then I have worked privately with people, adults and kids , in their sewing pursuit . The classes I have available now will be focusing on the pattern of your choice which we will break down and create over a few lessons depending on the difficulty or how long it takes. I will also encourage you to do some work at home if the time allows. I will ask that you bring a pattern and the fabric to the first class so we can get right to work. Most importantly, let's have fun in the world of sewing!

A little about me. My name is Marisa and I am a 23 year old Art History major with a passion for teaching. I am a very outgoing kind hearted person. I work at an elementary school as a Teacher's Assistant. I love being around kids all day, they warm my heart and bring the child out in me. In my free time I sew, bake, cook and do extreme sports.
You can make hundreds of cool products with simple hand sewing and many, many more once you get comfortable with a machine.
I started tutoring and caring for children very early, volunteered in classrooms in preschools, elementary schools and special needs classes when I was still in school. I began my AA degree in Early Childhood Education in 1993, but had to put my schooling aside in favor of employment and parenthood. I worked with children from infants to teens over the next twenty years in childcare centers, day cares, school age programs, tutoring and private lessons.I completed my BA in Education in March of 2014.
