Online Video Chat Sewing Lessons

Live video chat to learn to sew from the comfort of your home and scheduled at a time that is convenient for you.

This isn't pre-recorded video that you watch but live video chat so you can ask questions and get immediate feedback just like being there in person. Most of our sewing classes and personalized lessons can be effectively taught by video chat, plus you can still schedule them for a time that works best for you.

Learn the essentials if you're just starting with sewing, get help with a project you're working on or take on new techniques. I'm here to answer your questions and walk you through step by step over live video chat. So no matter where you're at, in Austin or anywhere else, you can learn something new and keep your creativity flowing.

This is an interactive experience so we chat the entire time, you can ask questions, watch how I perform techniques and I'll give you feedback as I guide you along the way. This includes showing you how to use tools and equipment, and demonstrating techniques from multiple perspectives to be as close as possible to being here in person. To give you the clearest view of the action we setup a camera system that enables me to easily switch between different points of view - facing the camera, overhead and close-ups of the machine.

What You'll Need

For the best experience please review the requirements and tools that are necessary to participate in online lessons. If you're new to online lessons the experience can be a bit intimidating and our aim is to make the experience informative, enjoyable and as easy as possible. If you're not sure if online lessons are right for you or your child I'm happy to review providing you with a quick demo of how it works and what you can expect before you commit. After scheduling your online lesson I'll provide you with details on the lesson, calendar confirmation and links to the video chat app that we'll be using.

  • A microphone, speakers and webcam are necessary so we can communicate during the lesson.
  • A high-speed internet connection is highly recommended. Please review the bandwidth recommendations for the app you want to use and test your connection speed.
  • If you're accessing on a laptop or desktop computer you may need to install a browser plugin. Access the lesson at least 10 minutes before your first call to allow time to install the plugin before the lesson begins.
  • If you're accessing on a phone or tablet you may need to install an app that should be installed before the lesson begins.
  • A stand for your webcam, phone or tablet that enables you to use the sewing machine or tools while the instructor observes.
  • For most lessons you will need the tools found in a basic sewing kit:

  • Minors must have their parents' permission. Please contact us to review options for teaching children online.
  • Please be sure to test and confirm all of your hardware and network connection are working properly before the start of the session. We won't be able to troubleshoot or provide technical support if you experience issues during the session.
  • Additional time will not be added to the session if your app, equipment, tools or materials are not setup and ready to use by the start of the session.
  • Video recording or taking photos during the session are not permitted. If recording is enabled the session will be stopped until the recording is turned off and any time expended will not be added to the duration of the session. You will only receive one notice to disable recording. If recording is enabled more than once the session will end and you will not receive a refund or credit, nor will you be permitted to attend any future lessons or classes.
