Learn to Sew!
Sewing lessons are available one-on-one or with up to 4 students. Project-based lessons may be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Lessons on Sewing machine basics are available as one-time lessons. I work with ages 6 and up on everything from basics to intricate garments/quilts/crafts. Lessons are tailored to experience level and goals.
Private lessons: $25/hour
Group lessons: $15/student/hour
Sewing machine basics
Have a new or new-to-you sewing machine that you want to learn how to use? Have a machine that you need a refresher on? I have experience working with most home sewing machine brands and would love to help! These classes can be one-on-one or in a group and using your own machine and can take place in my studio or in your own home. This content may also be covered in project based classes depending on experience.
Project based lessons
The majority of these lessons are ongoing and can be weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or other schedule depending on availability. Students will choose a project which must be approved based on experience. If it is more complicated than I would recommend for student's skill level I will recommend an alternative that will help build to that goal.
For kid and teen group lessons, student's may choose to do the same project or completely different projects. Classes are limited to a maximum of 4 students to allow time for individual attention. For beginning sewers I recommend starting with basics
All students will need to bring whatever materials are required for their project, along with basic sewing supplies such as fabric scissors, pins, seam gauge, seam ripper, and thread. I recommend bringing your own machine so its easier to transfer information learned in class to home sewing.
Alex has been my sewing teacher since I was about 9 years old and now I am 15 and a freshman in high school! Through all of it she has always been the kindest, most fun, wonderful, and caring teacher who I have come to look up to so much. In her classes I have not just learned about sewing but also formed strong friendships and always had a super fun time! Alex has always supported and encouraged me to be the best version of myself. She always comes to class with a smile on her face and ready to have a good time! She really is the best! For anyone interested in taking sewing lessons, there is no one else I would recommend other than Alex!
