Read my REVIEWS!! I specialize in working with beginners and teach foundation skills for using a sewing machine, following a pattern, handwork, and finishing.

I can help you make curtains, pillows, bags, aprons and other household items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern.

I have been sewing for over 30 years and was making my own clothes by the time I was in second grade. My lessons are not like reality TV. Projects take longer than you may think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project.

Please note, I do not teach pattern making, draping, and advanced tailoring. My experience with serger/marrow machines is limited.

Students are expected to provide all tools and materials but I will help you find what you need for your project.

Recommend duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes.

About Kim
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to fi
nd out why my students love me.

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 8 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

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!

About Cindy
I'm multi-media artist who offers various pottery, painting, fiber art (fiber processing, various types of felting, natural dyeing, yarn making, rug making, sewing, crocheting, knitting) jewelry, candles, and soap making and canning workshops in my art studio. We also have an onsite mini farm with llamas, alpacas, sheep and peacocks. We shear our animals annually and use our processed fiber in our workshops. Students learn the ancient traditions of naturally dyeing fiber with local plants and how to spin into art yarn with spindles.

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.

Hi all, I'm an experienced sewer with a degree in Textiles and Design! I've been sewing and teaching for over 20 years and love what I do.
Because I've worked with children and created lesson plans I know exactly how to teach with clarity and work according to the needs of my students.

About Adenike
Hello,

My name is Adenike, you can call me Adé. I'm a trained fashion stylist and designer with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Rhode Island.

I have taught sewing and design, to people of all ages, genders, and abilities throughout my professional career. It began in 2002 when I decided to work with the Americorps, Teach America program. There I created and executed a lesson plan that taught students how to sketch, render, sew, read patterns and adjusts garments for personal to suit their personal needs. The program incorporated science, math, and history so that they had a practical and anthropological approach to fashion design. It was great, and I discovered that one of my other joys in life is teaching.

Most recently, I've worked with Hobby Quest, where I teach children in an after schoo
l setting. Hobby Quest requires an extensive background check because of that fact that work is done with students on school grounds. I can supply references that will attest to my professionalism and easy going nature.

It's recommended that you schedule for a minimum of 60 minutes to get the most out of your lesson.

*IMPORTANT* Potential students interested in working on projects will be asked for project details and current sewing ability.
If a student is a beginner sewer, then he or she will be required to have a complete command of fundamental sewing as well as basic machine knowledge before introduction of project. There will be no exception to that rule.

I will teach you one-on-one with customized lessons. If you have never touched a machine before, I will teach you how to sew with confidence. If you need help finishing a garment, I can coach you. My experience runs from plush toys, to cosplay outfits, to tailoring, to quilting, to hula dance costumes, to one-of-a-kind purses.

Let's stitch up something cool.

About Donna

Donna is patient, kind, and delivers clear instructions that anyone can follow! She has a great eye for detail, color, and movement in her work. 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. Take a class or two! You'll love it.

Experienced teacher of 20 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate/advanced sewing student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be sewing in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of stitches, techniques and understanding patterns for individual garments...and you may also choose to learn how to repurpose the clothes you already have to make them fresh again. Let's get started!

About Taryn
Taryn studied fashion design and art therapy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She worked for Anna Sui and milliner Tracy Watts.

Taryn first started teaching sewing to displaced youth at Hollywood Arts 10+ years ago. She taught "R'ashion" (recycle fashion/sewing) at Environmental Charter High School for 5 years. She headlines EcoFashion workshops all around the world including Zambia, South Africa, and recently at the Green School in Bali.
