Learning can be fun and rewarding. When I first started sewing 30 years ago I made many mistakes from not having the proper technique. My goal is to teach you not to make the same mistakes I did.

Lia was an AMAZING meditation teacher! She was calm, patient and very 'Zen' for our entire lesson, which really helped me to relax and calm down myself. Her instructions were easy to follow and I was able to achieve a deep level of relaxation normally absent from my meditations! Using the skills and techniques I learned from Lia, I now have a much easier time getting into 'the zone' every time I sit down to meditate :) thanks Lia!
Jonathan Goldstein
Really enjoyed my meditation lessons! I highly recommend.
Noreen H.
I enjoyed my lesson with Lia very much. I am very happy with the artwork I was able to produce at the lesson. I would highly recommend Lia to any new student.

"Vena is very knowlegable about patternmaking and haute couture techniques. Besides, that she also helps me to see exactly were difficulties could come up, so that I wouldn't get into the usual beginner troubles!

As a person, she is calm and positiv minded. If you search for someone that knows a lot, has experience in the industry and it super precise- I can really recommend her!"
