Home Economics teacher with many years of experience gives embroidery lessons to young children.


I will be using ZOOM to teach the class so students must purchase recommended materials as well as have a computer. Students will start out with a simple project and then progress to a more difficult project. This is all hand sewing.


I am a retired Home Economics teacher who has taught school for many years. I have experience teaching sewing to children of all ages. I have lived in different countries in Asia and Africa and am used to teaching international students.
