Online sewing lessons with a professional seamstress and experienced teacher
Online sewing lessons for adults or kids to provide help with specific techniques, create your own designs, go in depth on sewing pattern from start to finish and refine your sewing skills.

How It Works

With private lessons the focus is on what you want to learn.

Based on your goals and skill level a personalized lesson plan is developed to meet your needs. This can include:

  • Creating projects from commercial sewing patterns
  • Using your own designs
  • Focusing on specific sewing techniques
  • Getting help with a challenging part of a project you're already working on
  • Learning about tools and materials

This not only includes the time I spend with you but often also includes research, creating custom templates/patterns, and developing individual curriculum. This way we maximize our time together and you get the most out of each session.

Not sure if online lessons are right for you?

We've developed an online learning experience to make it as close as possible to being in person. I make the same project along with you so you can see actions from multiple camera perspectives as I guide you step by step. Learn more or contact me about setting up a demo.
