My sewing curriculum is designed so that first time learners will feel motivated to keep on sewing. The first three projects are usually completed within the first 3-4 lessons. After learning how to operate the student's machine, together we will make a draw string bag, a skirt (for a doll, for a student or someone else) and a stuffed animal. These first three projects lay an important foundation; students learn basic and useful skills they will use over and over again as they begin to choose their own projects that we work on together.

I believe that if the student- whether a child or an adult- enjoys sewing and sees what they are capable of from the start, they will be more eager to learn more and take on new challenges.

Currently developing sewing worksheets for children.

About Melissa
Hi there! I'm Melissa, and I am a fashion design and sewing teacher on Staten Island. I have been teaching children and adults how to sew since 2014. I've been sewing since I was a child, and I've been teaching since 2007.

I am mostly self-taught, and that, coupled with my youth, gives me a unique perspective when teaching. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson- almost all of my students finish the first hour with a handy drawstring bag to keep their new sewing supplies in. I have a specific sewing curriculum for the first 3-5 lessons that helps lay a groundwork for making more exciting things.

After we finish those steps, I work individually with students to make whatever they would like, from Halloween costumes to memory pillows to peplum tops. The choice is
yours. I'm not the kind of teacher that is going to make you spend hours mastering a straight hem because frankly, that's really boring. I want you to learn while working on projects you care about

My experience includes;

-I worked in a tutoring school teaching kids from ages 5-17 in all subjects.
-I designed a program called Creative Studios for creative writing, fashion design and fine art. I taught these subjects to students aged 8-12.
-I teach sewing and fashion design (including fashion drawing) to various students in a one on one format.
-I teach fashion design and sewing to tweens, teens, and adults at SI Dance and Arts Center
-I am a resident costumer for Sundog Theatre.
-I taught at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund Saturday Academy
-I am pursuing a Masters in Adolescent Education in Social Studies

Please note that I am located in Staten Island, NY. I may be able to accommodate some Brooklyn students, but please inquire before booking. I have locations in 10306 and 10309 that can accommodate students if you don't wish to learn in home.

My studio space is located at Staten Island Dance and Art Center. It's a lovely, artsy space with bright yellow walls, four sewing machines, 2 professional mannequins, and a closet full of fabric and notions!

I went to Kari to get help with hidden stitches to make upholstery Seam repairs. She really helped me fix a lot of bad habits. I'll continue to work with her on leather seams as well. She is very professional as a teacher. She has a very good eye and can catch mistakes quickly. I was quite impressed with her artistic abilities. Kari has a really unique set of skills.

Beginner-You will learn basic skills of hand and machine stitching, seams, darts, pleats, zippers, pouch, tote bag and build many more samples into a scrapbook.

Intermediate- Fabric dimension and behavior, cutting skills, bias binding, various necklines and making a skirt or blouse. Learn to make garment with commercial pattern.

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.

I don't remember learning how to sew, that's how long I've been sewing! My mother taught sewing classes when I was little and I just picked it up from her! Since then I have taught many children how to sew! And some adults, too! It's an awesome skill. I love sharing this past time with others.

About Kristina
Hello! I love teaching! I have experience teaching in traditional classrooms, classrooms with learning differences, and online classrooms. I have taught and tutored many grade levels and ages. I home school my children, so I have learned how to personalize learning experiences to the student. I also teach ESL online and in person. I have my TESOL certification. I am enthusiastic and I hope that you give me a chance to help you learn!

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.

Hello!

I'm a professional costume designer based in Chicago. I work mainly for opera companies and historically informed performances, but am an enthusiast for anything related to sewing (clothes, stage costumes, or craft projects involving fabrics).

With me you can:
- Learn to sew from scratch
- Improve your basic skills
- Bring your project to my costume shop and I’ll give you professional tips on how to finish or improve it!

About Meriem
Hello!
On takelessons.com I can be your:
- French teacher or/and
- Sewing teacher (with a French accent!)

I lived in France for 18 years (childhood and college) and 9 years in Tunisia (middle and high school, in a French school), and I moved to the USA in 2011.

I began teaching while doing my PhD (Université de Lille, 2010). I now work as a costume designer and specialize in opera, but my very first job in the US was teaching for a French theater summer camp!

Now I occasionally translate documents, and help opera singers with their pronunciation & understanding of French lyrics.
I also have an American boyfriend who is learning French with me from scratch!

I would like to share my love for the French language and culture with more people, through fun conversations.

She makes suggestions when she sees a way to help make the process easier and more seamless (pun intended). I've known Donna for a number of years, and she has always been helpful and positive.
