Because I give private lessons, students learn faster as they have my full attention during the whole class.
My real passion is garment sewing, but I also enjoy quilting and Home dec projects. I have sewn exclusively on Bernina machines and sergers. I have worked in three Bernina stores as I have moved from city to city.
I furnished machines and notions for each class, along with some fabric. The student then will pick out fabric and a specific pattern after deciding on a project.
As I teach from home, I can easily adapt a time that suits the student’s schedule, whether is is weekdays and evenings or weekends.
Karin is a very good teacher and a nice person, very comfortable to be around
The first class is introductory to the sewing machineand is usually take one hour. It will be determined how much a student knows, if she a a complete beginner or knows basic techniques. Learning the basics of the machine, threads, needles should take up the first class.
I have over 25 years of sewing experience. Have taken various classes during this time. I have worked for three Bernina stores since 2001.
My basic prices start at $30/hr., and and can go up to $50hr.
After learning so much working for Bernina, I wanted to pass on this information to others.
I have taught mainly career women who have busy jobs who are looking for a creative outlet with a practical side. They have been engineers, attorneys and a dentist or two.
My students have ranged from 17 years of age to over 60. Quite a few of the younger women have been interested in sewing because of the desire to create a clothing line and go into the design business.
Anytime I get to see a student’s face light up after she has made something that she has sewn is a great joy!
If she does not own a sewing machine, to wait until she has decided on the features and type of machine she will need to best perform her desired projects.
