SEWING LESSONS

Sewing Lessons for Charter School Students, Home School Students and Individuals

 

I offer sewing lessons for local charter and home school students, as well as other individuals wanting to learn to sew. I am a registered vendor for many charter schools, so voucher funds can be used for lessons. Please contact me to inquire about lessons for your child or yourself:

I offer sewing instruction of all levels and types. Lessons range from beginning to intermediate, and include hand sewing and machine sewing. My focus is primarily on clothing construction, but I can also teach soft goods sewing (curtains, pillows, etc.) and alterations. Lessons are one hour, and taught at the studio behind my store in the Gold Country Mall in Auburn. Students can bring their own sewing machines, or use the machines I have on site. All supplies and materials are provided. For group lessons, I can have a maximum of three students at a time. Please call or email for more information about scheduling lessons.

Lessons Offered:

 

Beginning Sewing:

 

This lesson plan is for those completely new to sewing, or those who haven’t done any sewing in a long time and need a refresher. Sewing is not at all difficult if you take one step at a time as a beginner. Whether you’re completely new to sewing or you’ve got a couple of projects under your belt, I bet you’ll find something you haven’t tried yet here.

 

Lessons include:

 

- Beginning Hand Sewing

- Beginning Machine Sewing

Lessons are generally one hour, with instruction/demonstration of a new skill in first 10 minutes of class, practice of a new skill, and then we’ll work on projects. Examples of projects include: Creating an envelope pillow cover, making a simple pair of pajama pants, basic clothing mending and altering, and other beginning projects utilizing both machine and hand sewing techniques.

Lessons are $55/hour and all fabric, equipment, supplies and needed materials are provided!

​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, costume design, alterations, interior design products, or anything else you can dream up!
