About this pro

I have taught private and group sewing lessons for design, pattern making, and clothing alterations. I have a passion for teaching these skills to others for gaining a new skillbase, and advancing careers, either online or in person.

I have been a professional seamstress for over 11 years. I have worked in bridal alterations and custom design for a local bridal designer. For 7 years I was a menswear tailor for Jos A Bank Clothier, as well as a bridal seamstress for The Gown Gallery. I am now a member of the alterations team at Nordstrom Oak Park.

    The knowledge the instructor demonstrates and carefully exhibits while detailing each step is fantastic guidance. This company is well managed, professional, and beautifully catered.


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

First we will discuss what you want to learn. Then I will customize a lesson around that, and share the steps we will take to help you reach your goals. I will be flexible with setting up lessons in person or online.

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

I charge $20/hour for lessons. I am also open to discuss other arrangements for ongoing classes.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all ages of students, including children and adults.

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

I recommend that you have your own sewing machine before contacting a sewing teacher, unless you want their advice on what type of sewing machine to look for. If you need a machine and you are on a budget, I highly recommend buying a used machine online from Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, Letgo App, etc.
