At first I would teach just the basic things. And slowly I will teach everything step by step to be perfect in stitching.
My teaching methods are focused on the real world. I prepare you for what you can expect in the field you're studying. We will relate real life skills to the topics you're studying so that you can be successful. We will also explore your creativity through these topics.
I have a hands on approach. You would have the chance to learn sewing one on one while trying the techniques in person. I would also provide you some fabric to try some techniques either at home or while I'm teaching you.
I tailor my classes to my students' needs. If you are an absolute beginner, I will create a lesson plan to teach you the basics. I will demonstrate each technique and then observe as you attempt them, until you master them! If you are not a beginner and you know what technique you would like to learn or improve, let me know in advance, and I will build a lesson plan accordingly.
Classes start from the very basics of hand stitching and threading a sewing machine to level up into cutting and stitching full sized clothes. Advanced techniques like stitching leather garments and home decor are also taught if the learner is interested. Embroidery and crochet can be incorporated into the lesson if required.
My teaching method is directive. A typical class will follow my instructions to draft their measurements. Pieces, for example, a sleeve is taken home and completed on the sewing machine.
You will determine the goal and we will work together via online visuals and real demonstrations that will provide you with the skills and knowledge to enjoy any sewing project. My passion for teaching and sewing is contagious and is the confidence builder you need to become a motivated beginner sewer or refresh your skills as an experienced crafter.
