Seamstress and patternmaker with 16 year of professional experience! Friendly, easy to work with, and I always like to keep my lessons fun and engaging :)

Methodology

Patience, patience and patience. I listen to what the student needs and adjust my lessons accordingly. Some students need more time to grasp one concept or another. Some breeze through a concept and need more of a challenge. Also, there are no stupid questions in my class.

Background

I have a degree in Fashion Design. I have worked in the fashion industry as a patternmaker and loved what I did. I branched off to teach both at the middle school and college levels. I taught intro to sewing classes, garment construction, digital textile design and fashion design/illustration. I also had my own seamstress business out of my home where I made custom gowns, did bridal alterations and prototyped crazy ideas from clients. All were very satisfying and educating in their own way.

Rates
