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 9years 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.

We couldn't have imagined a more excellent instructor for our daughter. Lily has such a kind and pleasant demeanor. She is intelligent, patient, and is literally the best teacher that I have seen work with my daughter.

I give Lily my highest recommendation and always look forward to her coming and teaching my daughter. The relationship that they have formed is invaluable, beyond sewing. We are so appreciative and grateful to her.

About Siddharth
Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

Edward and I had a horrible time trying to connect via the Take Lessons interface. I could see and hear him but he couldn't hear me. This being interactive doesn't work. We futzed with it for about 20 minutes and then went to Skype, which worked perfectly. Take Lessons needs to get their act together on their interface.

Once connected via Skype, we had an almost instant "buddy" connection. Eddie is really pleasant and very good at working with what you have, which in my case is not much. We spent the first ten or so minutes with me hitting simple shots with the cue ball only so he could study my "technique." He immediate spotted about three flaws and we spent the next thirty or so minutes working on grip, alignment, open and closed bridge (left hand use for a right hander) and ball striking for an on line shot. From there he had me shooting a simple cut shot explaining how to aim it, hit the spot and pocket the ball. I must have hit that shot for him 30 times with only ONE miss. The whole time he was giving me feedback on minor corrections and positive reenforcement when I got something right. We finished the hour with him giving me practice instructions for the next week and a brief conversation about sticks and tips. It turns out I lucked out and bought what he called "an excellent entry stick".

I played a match with a friend right after the lesson and applied what Eddie had given me in our lesson. I made a lot of shots I would normally not have expected to make utilizing Eddies instruction. I still lost the match (my friend is highly advanced) but gave him more of a game than normal, and won two out of five. I'm very pleased.

About Kathleen
I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself.

Now I have 10 years of continuous experience sewing for myself, friends, and family. I've made seasonal pillow covers, tiny shirts for my little cousins, and lots of dresses for my Mom. (How the tables have turned!)

I would love to help you discover how fun and easy sewing can be. If you're a curvy woman, like I am, buying clothes that fit can be super frustrating. That's why I went from sewing costumes to making day-to-day clothes for myself. It can seem intimidating at first, but most women just need some basic adjustments on every pattern to make them
fit perfectly. I promise your wardrobe will never be the same again!

About Ruqayyah
My name is Ruqayyah and I love sewing and fabric. My strengths are combining the fabric and design for the perfect match! I have over 20 years of sewing experience. I am 100% self taught and I am very comfortable teaching small aged kids to adults. I have a 7 year old that I am currently teaching to sew. I was in the fashion retail industry as a retail buyer for more than 20 years. I worked closely with designers and industry leaders to develop concepts and make big buys for large big box and vertical retailers. I even developed a line that i had manufactured (I can take you through the dos and don'ts if you are interested in going down that route.)

What you can learn from me:
- 20 years of advanced sewing
- combining fabric and design (an important concept to deliver the right look)
- sewing basics (basic stitch, zippers, hems, et
c)
- get acquainted or reacquainted with your sewing machine (threading the sewing machine and/or serger)

MACHINES THAT I OWN/USE:
SEWING MACHINES:
Babylock Aria (my everyday machine)
Janome MC 4800 QC (my backup ...love this machine)
Brother CE7070PRW (the lightweight machine I travel with)
Kenmore (vintage machine)

SERGERS:
Singer 5-Thread Professional
White Speedylock DF1634
