About this pro

My methods are innovative and based on experince.

I don't believe that just because something has always been done a certain way, means it's the best way.

I teach you how to think outside the box for better, faster, more pro results with your sewing.

When you first start sewing garments for yourself, fitting is actually the hardest part. I spend time teaching you how to sew and how to properly understand how a garment is supposed to fit and why. 

I don't teach you something just because: "it's the way it's always been done". Or, "that's how my mom taught me". This isn't your mom's sewing!

I usually go against the old school, home sewing pattern instructions becuase home sewing pattern instructions have barely changed since the advent of the first home sewing pattern being released well over a hundred years ago.

These unchallenged instructions are what have been passed down without any investigation into more effective, innovative, professional techniques.

I have found better ways to sew based on research into professional garment industry techniques and just thinking outside the box. 

Just because something works doesn't mean it can't be improved!

That's what is so awesome about sewing or any hobby, there is so much room for growth and experimentation!

My methods are tested and they work. You will see better, faster, more consistent results in your sewing.

My promise to you is to not only teach you faster, smarter techniques, but explain to you the why behind them. 

Sew, what are you waiting for?

I love teaching and converting people into new sewists! Sewing for yourself is empowering and boosts your confidence. The first time you wear something you've made is the best feeling in the world!

We will start with a solid, smart foundation and build your sewing skills from there.

Find someone you connect with and understands your goals. Find a teacher that focuses on your postives and guides you through the tough parts.

You want an instructor that understands you and your learning style and can adapt their methods to suit the way the you learn.


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

What are your goals and what are you wanting to accomplish? You can learn the absoulte basics in a few lessons, but really learning to sew well takes time and lots of practice.

It's not a skill you can become profient at with just a few Youtube tutorials.
