We teach skills, not just projects. Learn "0-60" in intro to sewing on your machine or ours. Gain confidence in just one lesson. Learn garment sewing, understanding patterns, and much more!
I have been teaching sewing for over 10 years and at Artisan for over 5. My background is Costume Design and Construction for the theater and I have worked in professional theater, alterations, custom bridal and children's wear.
I love teaching all skill levels and ages 9- adults. Seeing you achieve your creative goals is the most important thing at Artisan Sewing and Fashion Academy. You will learn the skills you want; from simple alterations to custom pattern making, we can help you gain these skills and produce the project of your dreams.

I started teaching because a friend suggested I might be good. Then I feel in love with the process and started my bussiness.
I work with all ages. I have students who are 8yrs old and I have retired people. And all types of goals and projects; from stuffed animals to table cloths and aprons, to leggings, dresses and tailored jackets.
I absolutely love seeing a student finish a project that challeged them. Because I know they learned and grew. Matching plaid. Making a pattern alteration. Working with a difficult fabric.
I would hope you would find my shop and fall in love. But mostly, I would hope you find someone you feel you can learn from.
What they hope to make/learn? How much time do they want to invest? Are they willing to take several months to grow in the skill?
