Learn to Sew

“Sewing on Demand” – when and where you want

My goal is to make sewing lessons available to as many people as possible, so be sure to check out all of the available sewing programs. 

I teach a few scheduled classes each month, but my specialty is private lessons. These are scheduled at a time and location that work best for you – in your home, school, my home studio, or other shops. There’s something for everyone based on your skill level and what you want to learn.  Learn more about the different sewing programs, or check them out below:

  • Private Classes – Any Ronkita class, when and where you want.
  • Intro to Sewing Course – An in-depth series for beginners to cover essential sewing techniques and using a sewing machine.
  • Private Lessons – Focus exclusively on what you want to learn.
  • After-School Programs & Camps – During the school year, or over summer or holiday breaks, sewing programs are available for individuals, schools, and organizations.

After-School Programs & Camps

Personalized sewing programs to provide in-depth instruction for all experience levels.

I’m looking forward to teaching new groups of kids in my after-school sewing programs this semester. If you want sewing to be offered at your kid’s school, ask the administrators to contact me. I’ve developed different programs for all experience levels, and want as many kids as possible to have the opportunity to experience sewing. Learn More

Fun & Easy Sewing Workshop

ALL MATERIALS and MACHINES ARE PROVIDED – you just show up and leave with something cool!  

Sign up for the workshop, and at the beginning of the class you’ll select one of these items to make:

  • Clutch Handbag
  • Drink Cozy
  • Tote Bag
  • Drink Coasters

These quick-project workshops have been very popular and often sell out. The workshop is great for anyone who doesn’t know how to sew and wants to get a taste for sewing with fun, easy-to-make projects. Learn More

Sewing Life Skills: Mending & Altering Garments [NEW!]

Learn how to make common repairs and alterations to your clothes without a sewing machine. In this class you’ll learn basic hand sewing techniques, like how to attach buttons, fix an off-track zipper, hem pants or a skirt, and other handy skills. So instead of throwing the clothes away or never wearing them again, learn how to fix them yourself. Scheduled classes are coming soon, and you can always take it as a private class for you or with friends. Learn More
