Dawn is a wonderful instructor. She is very knowledgeable. Patient and willing to answer my questions. I had concerns about my ability to learn sewing, but Dawn has helped my confidence greatly. I plan to continue my sewing journey with Dawn:)
Marie
Dawn has wonderful instruction and is quite patient with new beginners like myself! Explanation is clear and she has a freakin wealth of knowledge about sewing, patterns, tips and tricks to make the outcome much neater, and starts off with the perfect projects for a beginner. Def a five start rating! :-)

Dawn is awesome! Very thorough with her explanations and really customizes lessons to my goals. She’s very encouraging and always reachable for questions outside of classes. Her hardware set up was conducive to on line lessons so it felt as much of an in person class as it could get. The lessons have really prepared me and got me excited for many more sewing projects!

You’ve come to the right place if you want to learn how to sew or enhance your sewing skills.

Do you need help in real time?

I provide sewing lessons for you online.

Level 1 Start: For someone new to Sewing, who has never sewn before nor used a sewing machine, your first lesson will be learning your sewing machine. Threading, bobbin, stitches, functions. You will also learn how to sew on scrap fabric. One hour.

Level 2 Start: A sewing beginner, someone who has sewn before but not much. If you already possess the skills and level one, then you start at level two. In this session you will learn to make a pillowcase or a tote bag. You will get more comfortable with the machine, controlling the speed, stitching within a seam allowance, and stitching a straight line. This could take 1 to 2 sewing hours.

Level 3 Start: Student possesses the abilities and skills in level one and two. At level three, you have already sewn something basic like a pillow, pillowcase or tote bag. At this ...

"I contacted Mya in the beginning of January because I was in the process of applying to fashion school and needed help and guidance constructing my design ideas. After I showed her my patterns, fabrics, and sketches, she confidently reassured me that everything would be okay. I came to Mya's home studio three-to-four days a week for three weeks. And during each lesson, she was incredibly patient in explaining sewing terminology, demonstrating techniques, and making suggestions on how to improve my designs. She was so knowledgeable that, at times, I felt like I was taking a college level sewing class. Seriously, I LEARNED SO MUCH! Moreover, Mya was sweet, funny, and incredibly hospitable. One evening, when I arrived to her house with pants wet from snow (because I had spent 1.5 hours digging my car out of my parking space), she gave me temporary clothes to wear while mine dried in front of her heater! No matter when I showed up, she always greeted with a big smile. I truly felt welcomed and accepted in her presence. And, even better, I finished my sewing projects nearly a week before my application deadline!!! THANK YOU, MYA :-D"

I feel like I accomplished so much in our first lesson, and we are going to make a copy of my favorite pair of lounge pants at our next lesson.
