May 2020 Update: Following the Safe Start Washington phased approach to reopening, we will begin scheduling private lessons to start in Phase 3. Because Washington’s phases are not date-driven and we are not yet positive when those lessons can begin, all scheduled lessons are considered tentative. That being said, we are hoping to begin mid-July and will be following the protocols given in the Business Activities Guidance document from Washington State for Phase 3, which has yet to be released.
I teach both one-on-one lessons and group classes for beginner to intermediate sewists of all ages. To learn more about lessons for groups or to set up a class, visit my group classes page.
Private lessons are an amazing tool to help you achieve your sewing goals! Are you local to Snohomish County and want to set up private lessons?
During your first lesson, we will discuss your sewing history and goals and create a custom learning experience especially for you! Once you’ve learned the basics, I’ll design your lessons to give you the skills needed to get you making the projects you want.
I teach quilting, garment sewing, basic wardrobe repair, home décor sewing, fabric weaving, bag making, color theory with fabric, hand quilting and hand embroidery. If you’re not exactly sure yet what you’d like to learn, we can get started on sewing basics and see where it takes you!
If you already sew, but have a specific area of your sewing that is tripping you up, I can help you through! We will work together on things you don’t quite understand to get you back on the road to completing your beautiful projects.
I charge $25 per hour for one student with a two-hour minimum. This gives us plenty of time to work on your projects. The materials for your first couple of lessons are covered in the cost of your class. Once we choose a specific project for you, I will give you a list of materials needed and set you loose on the fabric store to purchase your patterns and supplies. If you’re a little nervous about being at the shops alone, I will be happy to be available via text to help you with purchasing.
My in-home studio is well-equipped for lessons with all the supplies we will need, but if you have a sewing machine in your home, I am able to travel locally in north Snohomish county. If you come to me, you may choose to either bring your machine or use mine for lessons.
There’s nothing quite like using or gifting an item that you made yourself from fabric and thread. I am passionate about helping you feel the rush of pride that comes with learning this amazing skill. Feel free to email me to schedule your first lesson.
