I have been sewing ever since my wonderful Auntie Anne lent me her manual sewing machine one summer when I was a teenager. I sew clothes for myself, clients and even have an online store where I custom design clothes. I can teach you to make whatever you want. I will go at your pace so fear not even if you don't know how to use a machine. Let's have some sewing adventures together.

Advanced-Make dress, skirt, pants or blouse with lining.

Note: Although students learn at different rates, the above results are expected, if taking lessons 2hours a week, for 5weeks for all levels.

About LILY
I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For six years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

Custom classes designed to fit your specific needs. Lessons for the beginner and intermediate sewer who needs some help. Do you need help with learning a specific technique, installing zippers, adding a lining, hand stitching, pockets, choosing the correct needle, thread, seam variations or just want to learn how to alter your own clothing? Each class will be designed personally for you.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

The teacher was knowledgeable about all aspects of sewing and was able to tell me how to finish off one of my projects that I brought with. It was a jacket and skirt. I needed help mostly with the jacket and mainly understanding the finishing instructions for the jacket. I sewed some in the hour during the lesson and then Terry showed me on the instructions what to do at home. She then asked me to bring a new sewing project that we could start together when I come in two weeks. I would highly recommend Terry to any level of sewer wanting lessons. She is also a very kind lady as well.

My expertise in sewing always inspires creativity and passion within students, and the ease with which i guide them to explore their own creativity bring fun to the lessons. Having over 25 years of custom couture tailoring and teaching has given me a vast experience in order for me to equip any student with the requisite knowledge needed to tackle any sewing project.

About Kodjo
Most people simply call me Joe. I have a bachelors in Fine Art, an MBA and been making clothes for my clients for over 25 years. I taught many people sewing and they've gone ahead to tackle various projects on their own to their own disbelief. Creativity comes to me naturally and with a background in figure drawing and painting, my knowledge of anatomy of the human figure helps a lot in translating it into designs for all figure types and sizes. I have handled many interior design projects also, so all these experiences equip me with immense knowledge to transfer to those who want to learn all about sewing, whether as a beginner, an intermediary or advanced student.

Interested in learning to sew? Sewing is a unique art that is extremely versatile. You can make a pillow, sew a dress or costume, create a blanket and much much more. Learning to sew opens the doors to a vast creative realm and best of all it’s a blast. I have been sewing most of my life and love every bit of it.

About Miranda
I have been sewing for 16 years and love to help others learn this awesome craft! I have a degree in Fashion Design and can teach sewing- including how to use a serger and cover stitch machine, pattern use, pattern alterations, creating your own patterns, draping, and hand sewing.

Students can have a totally customized experience with me. You pick what you want to learn. We can arrange the lessons to learn specific skills such as serging, hemming, or using a pattern, or with specific projects in mind like making a pillowcase, purse, blanket, or dress. I can also help with fabrication knowledge and learning to recognize what fabrics are good for what projects. The options are unlimited. Want to make a T-shirt blanket to keep all those memories, learn how to hem your own clothes, make your Halloween costume or a dress for your doll, or
learn how to make curtains?

Sewing can be so much fun and it is a joy to see a piece of fabric turn into something remarkable. In today's world, the internet is a great tool and much can be learned from it but nothing quite beats having a teacher there to actually see and help you. I will be there to work hands-on with you or your student so that you, or they, have the best learning experience.

Whether you are new to sewing, or need help learning more advanced skills, Miranda is amazing. She has the ability, and patience to explain a concept, then walk you through how to apply it. For my lessons, we focused on grading sewing patterns, which is an abstract concept that takes time to get your head wrapped around. Now I'm confident in my ability to apply the skill, and with a little practice, I will be able to master making changes to patterns.

During our last lesson we went over different seams, and started building a garment.

She is highly recommended, and I look forward to future lessons.

I have been sewing since 1979 and embroidering since 1985. I am experienced in all forms of sewing, alterations, applique and embroidery. I can teach simple things like hemming pants, making garments to making products to sale. With technology today, sewing is easy because of the advanced sewing machine but you still have to know the basic such as: knowing your sewing machine, how to cut out a pattern, mark it and size it, how to pick the correct fabric for your project, how to cut the fabric on the bias and fold, how to mark fabric for hemming, darts and seam allowance. If you are doing it for personal reasons or as a business, I can help you.

About Jacquilin
Hello future seamstress, I started sewing in high school over 40 years ago and I still sew everyday. I love thinking, creating and designing for the WOW factor. I will show how something a simple as trim, buttons, mix and matching fabric, adding applique or embroidery and so much more can change the entire look of your project. with my passion and your desire to learn, you will advance from a beginner to the next step. I owned a daycare for 14 years so I am use to working patiently, repeating myself and go over the instructions until you get. My success as a teacher depends on you and how well you learn. We will be a team and I believe in winning. Let's get ready set and SEW!!!!
