Katey F.

Valley Village, CA

As I am still learning about the art of sewing myself, I only teach beginning sewing lessons to those wanting help with new machines or basic techniques. If you need assistance with specific areas, you are welcome to ask, but I very likely will not be the best candidate. However, I am always willing to work through issues with you and help find solutions as efficiently as possible based on my own experiences.

About Katey

I am currently in school to get my teaching credential and have spent some time in elementary school classrooms working with small groups or individual students. I have tutored students in reading, math, and Spanish through the America Reads program in New York and while I was in high school in California. I love helping students to achieve their academic goals and discover their true potential.

My older sister has autism so I have become very familiar with many different special needs children and am very understanding and patient with each student's level of learning. I also volunteered a
t an Autism center while studying abroad in Ghana during college, so I have some experience working with children in many different environments.

About Paula

I am a skilled seamstress/costume designer and basket weaver. I have worked with theatrical companies like Cirque Due Soleil, LA Opera and the Pantages Theater. I also and run my own sewing & craft business from home, "Paula in Stitches". My teaching experience in Los Angeles has been at MOOD Designer Fabrics and Hands on Third. G

Any student can be confident I have the ability to teach anyone strong sewing & basketry skills from the very beginner to a more advanced student. I started my own sewing education in home economics in Jr. High School and have developed my skills over the years th
rough on the job training. I learned basketry in summer camp and have been self taught since the age of 13.

My capabilities have allowed me to become a sample sewer for designers like Greg Lauren , of the Ralph Lauren family and up and coming clothing companies like Freedman Denim.

My patience and enthusiasm for teaching a craft that I love is a strong asset my past students have enjoyed. Teaching is a relatively new adventure for me and I look forward to continuing to share this art form with you!

Nikki S.

Los Angeles, CA

Hello! My mother taught me how to sew when I was nine years old and I have loved it ever since. I used to make my own clothes and wear them to school! This led me to study it in college. I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2012 and received a BFA. I can teach the basics starting with the tools and how to use a sewing machine, all the way to making your own patterns. I also have fashion sketching skills!

About Nikki

My name is Nikki and I am 24 years old from Los Angeles. I grew up in South Orange County and then moved to Savannah, Georgia. I studied fashion design and received a scholarship to play on their women's golf team (we were #1 in the country in the NAIA). I went pro in 2012 and participated in Q school and played on the Sun Coast Tour.
I love working with kids. I have worked in many kids camps including SCAD Art Smarts summer camp, vacation bible school, The First Tee of Savannah. I have been babysitting for many years now. I am a responsible, independent, hard working young adult with strong
values and morals. My career is in the arts, specifically in fashion design, but I love drawing and painting and pretty much anything else that is artsy and crafty. I can knit, crochet, weave, and sew.

On the first lesson Nikki related to my sixteen-year-old very well, and she dove right in to teaching fashion illustration. My daughter has had other art instructors from other schools - little of whom accomplished as much as Nikki in the first lesson. She gave necessary information ahead of class and was prepared with samples and work to be completed in class. It is wonderful when a student is happy she gets homework too! We are looking forward to many more lessons with Nikki.

Marie B.

Glendale, CA

I have been sewing for over 30 years and teaching for over 12 years. I am a Fashion Design graduate (FIDM) and can teach sewing, sewing machine care and basics, fabric cutting, using a pattern, pattern alteration or drafting, and draping.

I can customize the class to your needs and interests. I can teach you the making of garments, costumes or home decoration items, it's up to you! I can't wait to teach you how to be proficient with your machine and hand sewing.

About Marie

I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator.

I really enjoy teaching, but after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more meaningful, that wouldn't just help people
in their career, but in every aspect of their life. This is where Life Coaching got my attention. Through coaching, I can have a real positive impact in the world, one person at a time.

My other passion is Fashion Design. I am a Fashion Design graduate from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I studied Fashion so I could make my own patterns. I have been sewing for over 30 years and just love creating clothing or costumes for my children and I, with commercial patterns or my own patterns. I am pretty crafty, really good at modifying patterns, and I have a great knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.
