Private and Small Group Sewing Lessons:

If you are interested in private sewing lessons, please contact me!  I do one-on-one sewing lessons, as well as small groups (up to 3 people). I have a number of regular students who come weekly, or we can do just one or two sessions, depending on what you'd like to learn or work on. I teach all ages, from children to adults!


We can work on basic hand sewing, alterations, or machine sewing. Bring your sewing machine, or use one of mine, and get individual instruction on reading a pattern, putting together a project, learning new sewing skills, or whatever you'd like to work on! You'll have my personal attention and use of all the supplies in my studio. My rate for private lessons is $40 for one hour, and $75 for two hours. To book a private lesson, email me or call 530-382-0809.


All lessons are held at my store and studio located in the Gold Country Mall in historic downtown Auburn, California. Students will leave with new skills and products that they have created themselves.

​About Me and the Lessons

I am a professional clothing and costume designer with my own clothing design studio that offers unique, handmade clothing and costume pieces with a historical feel.  In my more than 30 years of experience I have developed a unique set of sewing and design skills that I love to share with others. I can teach anything from beginning machine or hand sewing up to advanced clothing instruction; alterations; interior design products (pillows, curtains, etc.); or anything else you can dream up!
