Lisa was wonderful. Very patient, detailed explanations, and went above and beyond. I’ve felt intimidated by sewing and even the process of setting up my machine but she was able to illuminate that process. This lesson was worth every penny and I’m looking forward to the next one.

I specialize in teaching young students, typically 8 years and up. I am extremely patient and positive with beginners. I also enjoy the challenge of helping more experienced students bring their own creations to life. Lately, I've had several male students making and altering shirts.

I've been sewing as long as I can remember and have been teaching since 2009.

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 ...

Private Sewing Teacher

Hello! I love teaching sewing because it is such a lost art. I offer basic sewing skills, how to read patterns, apply zippers, and pattern construction if you want to learn how to bring your own design to life. I teach all ages but especially enjoy teaching kids to give them something productive to do besides scrolling on their phone. I offer ¨sewcials¨ where adults can come together, enjoy a glass of wine, sew, and enjoy conversation. I am very adaptable and understand that ever student has their own needs.

"I am so happy that I found Mya! I had a very enjoyable lesson with Mya at her home. Mya is a very good teacher, with sensitivity to the particular needs of the student. Mya taught me pattern-making. She did so in a way that allowed me to first observe, then practice what I had observed. I came away with a usable pattern to make an item no longer available in stores.

Whether you are new to sewing or need help in developing new skills, you will find Mya able to meet you at your sewing level and you will end the lesson with enthusiasm for sewing and looking forward to your next lesson!!"
