Experienced Costume Designer Teacher of 3 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of basic pattern skills we can always dig into more difficult pieces. I specialize in mostly custom costume designs, typically use beginner patterns like Simplicity, McCall, or Butterick, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: nail and thread, extra thread, sewing machine, pattern wanting to use, material scissors, and pins.

I came to Kaycee as a total beginner to drawing, and she has walked me through the process step-by-step which is exactly what I need! Great at explaining techniques and why we are doing things to our drawings. I am excited to be gaining knowledge from the ground up and watching it come to fruition.

I have been sewing for over 30 years and teaching for over 13 years. I am a Fashion Design graduate (FIDM) and can teach sewing, sewing machine care and basics, fabric cutting, using a pattern, pattern alterations, or pattern drafting, and draping.

I can also teach how to choose the proper fabric for your projects, and the different finishing techniques for hems.

I can customize the class to your needs and interests. I can teach you the making of garments, costumes, or home decoration items, or garment alterations.

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.

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 grea
t knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.

I really enjoy teaching, and after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more hands-on, and I have been enjoying teaching sewing and fashion design. It is rewarding to pass on a skill that used to be taught from generation to generation, but that less and less people are learning nowadays.

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

As a result of my lesson with Connie, I gained a clear and thorough understanding of the most challenging pattern I am working with. Although I consider myself to have intermediate skills I still needed the assistance of some one far more proficient and Connie is that person. She is a patient, professional and most pleasant woman. I will not hesitate to call for her help again.

Sewing Machine, check! Material, check! I can help you bring the two together with knowledge and care as your sewing instructor. Whether you have a specific project in mind that you'd like help with, or maybe you just need some help getting back into sewing, each class is tailored to make the skills you have shine, while you absorb new ones.

About KIM
I am a fashion samplemaker, and a devoted sewing teacher! My greatest joy is seeing my students master new skills, empower themselves through crafting their own style, and applying their learning throughout their lives. I maintain a blog on Tumblr where you can see some current and past fashion samplemaking work (as released by the designer themselves) as well as video tutorials that I've made.

While I am patient, my enthusiasm is palpable during each lesson. Each lesson is designed for maximum student engagement using a show-not-tell approach. Sewing is a hands-on enterprise! So, I do my best to empower each student with each lesson.

I found Kim after looking for someone to make me some custom athletic tank tops for the gym. After meeting her, I chose to learn how to sew instead, because she did a good job of making sewing make sense to me. To say I felt awkward my first time in a sewing store as a 6'6" bodybuilder the understatement of my life.

She took me from knowing nothing at all about sewing to being able to make my own work-out tops. Then she taught me how to make work shirts, and soon together we will start making my first pair of pants. (If you're as tall as I am, you know this is a very big deal.)

Friends and coworkers, for the first time, they're seeing me in clothes that fit my arms and shoulders properly and they ask where I got them. I feel really good about that, and I don't have rashes under my armpits from too-tight "XL" shirts.

If she can get my burly dopey butt to learn to sew, she can teach anyone.

She also has a stocked sewing studio. Most lessons I go there to learn, but I've also had her visit my place. I prefer to go there, if you need a button or fabric, she probably has it, and will let you buy muslin from her instead of taking a special trip to the Garment District to get it.

I've been teaching sewing for 30 years and my students have gone on to creating their own clothing by use of patterns. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain knowledge of how to thread a sewing machine, tension, bobbin, stitches available according to your specific machine or ones I have available in my studio. As time goes on you'll be able to cut and sew a specific project's desired from patterns. I love working with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been sewing professionally for over 5 years, and I have a degree in Apparel Pattern Design. I'm passionate about historical costuming and general fashion history.
Class fee includes materials for most projects!
Let's get together and learn something new!

About Elizabeth
Hello! I'm happy to be considered as your future sewing teacher!

A little bit about myself, I started sewing when I was around 8 years old with my grandmother and I've been passionate about it ever since! I've worked for many different sewing companies over the years, doing everything from hemming signs and banners to creating custom corsets. After getting frustrated by the lack of variety in commercial sewing patterns I went and got my degree in Apparel Pattern Design. One thing you'll learn as we get to know each other is that I love costuming of all kinds, particularly historical costuming!

I strongly emphasize machine care and maintenance in my lessons. I've found that a great many of the problems people have when trying to learn to sew can be solved by properly operating and caring for their machines.

Elizabeth helped me re-learn how to sew when she was just a teenager. She's patient and was wonderful at helping me figure out what I may have done wrong when things went weird, and how to prevent it in the future. In just one day, I had an adorable new dress for my daughter.
