About Milda
I am located in Los Angeles for in-person lessons , BUT I teach online via Skype all over the U.S. Please indicate the type of lessons + subject you would like to learn when you contact me. I'm best to suited for beginners through intermediate. I am willing to travel outside my travel radius at $35/trip depending on distance. If outside my travel area, you must book at least a 2 hour lesson.

I'm a designer with extensive experience that you won't find elsewhere. I am not a simple sewing teacher- I customize all my lesson plans, prepare our projects to be of most benefit to your specific goals, and have a unique set of skills that the average sewing teacher doesn't. I don't compromise on my rates as I provide an extreme amount of value for what I offer. My resources and tips alone are great ways of to make you excel at your project goal
s a lot more quickly than with anyone else. I believe in a holistic approach to tackling your projects- not just isolating one way of accomplishing it.

I am a former Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) Professor, teaching sewing and fashion art, and in the fashion industry for over 16 years. I have worked at Target Stores, Federated Dept. stores, and Alexander McQueen, and have a very close working knowledge of industry standards and needs. I currently work as a costumer in Hollywood on films and television creating costumes for the stars. I facilitate students and fashion companies in the following areas:

-Sewing
-Patternmaking
-Illustration (computer or-hand-rendered)
- Fashion Portfolio Preparation.
- Hand Embroidery (I DO NOT operate Embroidery Machines)
- Graphic Design FOR BEGINNERS in Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator and Photoshop); though I work with general graphic design, my specialty is fashion garment illustration.
- Consulting on how to produce your own clothing/accessories collection.
- Consulting on how to source and produce your Domestic and Overseas collection.
- How to create line sheets.
- How to create technical packets.
- How to create digital art for screenprinting.

OTHER:
-Computer Assistance for BEGINNERS- Learning to use the Computer, Basic Skills in MS Office, using the Web. etc.

REQUIREMENTS:
1.) You will have to have all your materials and most of your tools: sewing machine, computer with all installed programs or services, patternmaking tools and paper, fabrics, etc. I will bring some small materials to our first session to explain what tools to purchase.

2.) You must make yourself available for one 15 minute phone consult before scheduling your first lesson- please plan to do this at least one week to 2 days before you want to schedule your first lesson. We will discuss your lesson goals, and what materials to buy. You do need to allow time to purchase your materials, so please plan ahead. When you purchase your lessons, please email me a time and date (or several) to schedule this phone call.

3.) IMPORTANT:
Please schedule directly with me VIA EMAIL. I do have my general availability listed on schedule for everyday, However, I work with many students and teach classes that might not be reflected in this schedule. I will try my best to honor the time you request, but I cannot guarantee it. Please email me to confirm- I will also reach out to you via phone to confirm or reschedule a time if there is a conflict.

POLICIES:

- 24 hour cancellation policy/ no refunds given after this time.
- All sessions are a 1 hour minimum. Recommended time for sewing lessons is 1.5 - 2 hr increments.

As a beginner, I was nervous. Super unnecessary! Milda is very patient, kind, and encouraging. I feel more confident about my sewing goals and my current progress. Looking forward to my next lesson. Only regret is not signing up ages ago.

About kaneshia
My name is Kaneshia Andrews and I started sewing in 2004, mainly sewing as a hobby. Over the years, I started sewing professionally for my online store fierlessfashion.com, friends and family. In addition to sewing, I also make jewelry. I am affiliated with a national sewing organization such as ASG of Plano. I’ve taken online classes with Stratford Career Institute, Burdastyle University, Crafty classes and in-studio with Petit Atelier.

It is widely known that sewing is fun, educational, and practical. Learning to sew is a wonderful hobby for all ages.
 Sewing is a wonderful medium of empowerment
 Sewing is great for devolving problem-solving skills, strong motor skills, attention to detail, and enhances focusing skills
 Sewing not only helps people to learn a hobby that is fun and artistic, it teaches math, critical thi
nking, and spatial awareness
 Confidence building

She was patient without being patronizing. I like that she assessed how well I was working on something then moved on as soon as she felt it was appropriate.

Kaitlin was very patient with me and helped me to understand the basics of crocheting. Taking a class in person instead of online is definitely the way to go as crocheting is a very hands on and detail oriented task!

About Rachael
I am a knitwear designer living in working in Brooklyn, NY. I run my own sustainable knitwear and homegoods brand right here in Brooklyn! I graduated from Vassar College and went on to receive my MA both the Glasgow School of Art and The University for the Arts in London, UK in 2005.

I studied fine art and photography during college, but incorporated my love of fiber arts into my work since I was a very young child. I first learned to crochet when I was 10 years old! I was a practicing photographer in the world of music and conceptual portraiture for years before switching over to starting my knitwear brand in 2009. My company are venture fellows at the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator, a hub for sustainable fashion, and is a proud member of the Ethical Fashion Forum's Fellowship 500 as a leader in a diverse group of brands
and manufacturers committed to sustainable production. We work with local hand-knitters here in Brooklyn, as well as artisans and artisan-owned workshops in Peru, Bolivia and Uruguay specializing in alpaca and merino knitting, as well as with local yarn spinners and weavers.

My company has been featured in Elle, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Real Simple, Women’s Health, Seventeen, Self Magazine, Lou Lou, & Time Out print publications and online at Chictopia, Ok Magazine, Refinery 29, Runway Hippie & Daily Candy to name a few. Our collections have been sold everywhere from Barney's Tokyo, American Rag CIE, ASOS and Henri Bendel in NYC.

My personal passion is knitwear and crocheting, but I firmly believe I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any fiber art. I'm very personable and excited to teach people of all ages this functional, creative skill in a fun, laid back environment! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better crocheter and designer!

About Sandra
Crochet is a fun and portable craft that keeps your mind and hands busy. Since the early 80's, I have been crocheting and knitting although I am much more proficient in crochet.

I feel like I am a successful teacher since I have an easy going, friendly manner that helps take the stress away from learning a new skill. I like to meet my students in person in the safety of a public place like a coffee shop or library near their home.

I think it helps to be present and able to see how the student is holding the hook and yarn and help them make any adjustments if needed. It's also nice to be able to give encouragement and any suggestions when I'm sitting right next to a student.

I will bring extra hooks and yarn for you to practice with, plus written tips and cheat sheets. All you have to do is show up and have fun learning to
crochet!

I've been playing and teaching the game of bridge for the past 24 years. I love this game, and I love introducing it to others so they can share in the joy of bridge. I've taught people from age 8 to age 75 and everywhere in between. My goal is to make the lessons fun because this is a game, and the only reason to play a game is to have fun.

Do you look around and think I would love to make that? Well now you can with a little bit of my help!

This is my first experience formally teaching. I have been teaching friends and family for quite some time and now would like to bring this wonderful craft to you! I have been crocheting for over 20 years creating different items for sale. I am constantly improving on my craft and have a lot to offer those who would like to learn.

Students will be asked to provide their own materials. I am happy to assist with this if needed.

Hi my name is Cathy and I can’t wait to meet you! I am a 48 year old with two children. My daughter is a cosmotolgist and is 23. My son is 20 and in the Navy! I started knitting when I was pregnant with my daughter and have never stopped. I knew no one who knit so I self taught myself from a book. I went on to found our local TKGA chapter before I handed it over! For several years I was a test knitter for designer Jennifer Hagan! I love to spread the knitting love to others! Thank you for your consideration!

I have been a Reiki Master since 2015 and practicing Reiki longer than that. I love to help people find ones peace and healing! Feel free to contact me with any questions!💫✨💫🙏🏻

I love knitting lessons with Cathy!!! For many years I wanted to learn how to knit. But sadly the only one in my family who knew how to knit passed away. I kept putting it off and it was to late. But a good friend of mine, told me about Cathy's knitting classes. So I decided to give it a try and I'm HOOKED lol. Cathy is so patient with beginners and she's fun ,kind and makes me laugh. In no time at all I'm able to make hats, scarves, and blankets. Cathy offers advanced classes , so I want to learn how to make sweaters and other fun items. My friends and family love all their gifts I have knitted for them so far and they will cherish it for years. I highly recommend Cathy.
