  • Better Living Through Sewing

    I offer private and small group sewing lessons from my North Oakland studio which is a 7-minute walk from MacArthur BART and an easy on/off to I-580. I've taught sewing for 18 years to thousands of students, and together we've worked on projects ranging from bathing suits to quilts. I specialize in beginners! My students say I"m patient and thorough. I keep my classes small (8 students or less) so you get a personalized instruction experience. Getting to know my students and helping them learn skills they didn't think they could learn. It's gratifying to watch a student's face light up as they discover a new technique and master it!

  • Napa Needlepoint

    (1 reviews)

    Create fantastic fiber art with Napa Needlepoint. I offer the following services: * private or group instruction in needlepoint or other forms of counted thread embroidery (including to shops and guild chapters) * instruction in online classes in many different needlepoint techniques * writing of custom needlepoint stitch guides and designer of custom charted and personal plaids * printed and electronic books and projects * custom charting of names and phrases, with or without borders * custom computer printing of needlepoint canvases * monthly needlepoint clubs on color, thread, stitches, and stash busting I am the internet's leading expert on needlepoint since 1996, and I've been stitching since 1970. I'm madly in love with fiber and have taught many people about threads and colors. Too many people think needlepoint is stuffy, boring, and elitist; in reality, it's more creative, affordable, and easier than many other forms of needlework. I've developed many ways to take the mystery out of needlepoint, so that it becomes handwork anyone can enjoy. I'm dedicated to making needlepoint fast, fun and affordable.
