About this pro

I've teach sewing, design and patternmaking lessons all over Los Angeles and online via Google Hangouts or Skype. I specialize in costume design for theater and film. With more than 19 years of experience I teach with patience and leave lots of room for any questions.

I love teaching a skill that will last a lifetime. 

I teach adults, kids/parents, and groups through L.A. Sewcial Club.

    Everything was explained first and they we were shown what to do step by step. When questions were asked whether related to what was currently being shown or not they answer in a knowledgable way. The class was great I felt comfortable and free tp ask questions. I learned a lot. 10x better than a class at Joanns

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I have a lesson plan prepared for our time together but include plenty of time for questions.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been designing and sewing for more than 19 years. I have a Degree in Fashion Design. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The online Skype/Google lessons are $20-$25 per hour weekends, year-round. The in-person lessons start at $50 per hour and are very limited. All available at

How did you get started teaching?

I was asked by  friends to teach one-on-one lessons. Then I taught small classes, large classes and now online by Skype and Google.

What types of students have you worked with?

I teach Male and Female adults.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I taught a class of 20 LAUSD teachers how to craft for Day of the Dead at an Art Gallery in Highland Park, Los Angeles.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Have a clean, working sewing machine, have a sewing kit and have questions ready to ask. If your sewing machine comes with a Users Manual read it thoroughly. If your sewing machine has a tool kit, open it and find out what everything is. An instructor can teach you how to actually use it and answer any questions.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Anything about fabrics and needles and threads.
