I was SO lucky to find Jayne through thumbtack. She was a dream to work with. I needed a modest wedding dress. I wasn't coming across anything in the stores I liked or would work, so I decided I would have it custom made from scratch. I luckily was able to find Jayne, and she really made my dream a reality. I know nothing about sewing, fabrics, etc. She helped me pick the best fabrics, giving me different options in different price ranges. She also explained to me the different options I had in executing my vision. I loved that she would always give me options, as I can be pretty picky down to the detail when it comes to designing things. Not only is she super talented and did everything with perfection, she is just such a pleasure to talk to! She was always there to listen to my other wedding stresses and offer her advice in any way she could (especially when I was stressing over my DIY decorations). From the moment she took me on as a client, I did not have to stress one bit over the dress, which was a huge relief considering all the other things I had to stress over with planning a wedding. I HIGHLY recommend her for any custom designs or just alterations too!
I’ve taken one course with Berna and plan to go back for more. With just the one course I’ve taken, I’ve been able to fix some of my clothes that fit badly or needed hemming. Berna tailors her course to the level of experience her students have. I would highly recommend her over the group sewing courses, as she provides one on one teaching and is able to observe you the entire length of the course.
Laura has done several sewing sessions for me. First I took my favorite old shirt to her and she made 4 shirts from it in different fabrics, so now I have 4 favorite new shirts. The best thing Laura ever made for me was a Game of Thrones type dress for a masquerade party. She took pains to make the details to my specification and make sure that it fit perfectly. Thanks Laura!
Arisha's passion for sewing shows in her knowledge and instruction. She is patient when explaining sewing techniques and she addresses your sewing concerns. She has a solid understanding of creating garments that fit YOUR body, the way YOU want them to fit. Arisha makes herself available to answer questions even outside of your sewing lesson. Arisha is a keeper. If you want to learn how to sew or want to increase your sewing knowledge or perfect your techniques, she can help you.
Lacie has given my adolescent son several sewing lessons over the past few years. Though he's awkward and has a difficult time articulating himself sometimes, Lacie is always patient and kind with him, she never gets frustrated. If he has an idea of what he'd like to do or learn, they do that, and if he doesn't, she comes up with a neat project so he always has something to show for it when he's done. I'm not sure there's any way for her to improve her sewing lessons, and I would highly recommend her as a sewing teacher for beginners of any age!
Really enjoyed the "Intro to the Machine" sewing class and it taught me what I wanted to learn to get comfortable with basic tasks on a sewing machine that used to seem so daunting. It inspired me to buy my own sewing machine and start on some projects!
Carmela gave my daughter a sewing lesson. She was patient and knowledgeable and made my kid feel at ease. (No fault of C's that my daughter wasn't that interested at this stage in her young life.) I've also been very satisfied with the quality and speed of the alterations she's done for me. I also had C re-upholster my couch. She did an amazing job, very quickly at a fraction of the costs I had been quoted by other upholsterers. She even came with me to the fabric store and helped me select the fabric. I am very pleased with the result-- it's a brand new couch!
Amazing results!!! My daughter drew the dress she wanted for her senior prom. Lisa brought the dress from the sketch book to life. My daughter was so excited!! This was not an easy job. Every detail was a challenge. Lisa is really a master at her craft. She went above and beyond to make this a most memorable experience. Thank you Lisa for being great at what you do. You were a pleasure to work with and we will definitely use your services again!
She does amazing work. Very clean and detail orientated. I watched her put together a wedding dress to perfection!!!
Maria is a fantastic pattern maker and sewing teacher! She was able to make a pattern out of my existing garment without taking it apart and walked me through all the steps of re-creating the item. Not only is she very knowledgable, she is also a great teacher and was able to explain things to me so I could retain them and practice on my own. I was completely new to sewing and she patiently answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable with the different stitches. She also taught me how to setup and use my new sewing machine! Maria is a very down to earth and easy going person; it was really fun chatting during our lessons. I will definitely be back for more lessons!
I started my business to share my love of all things paper crafting with my local community. I love the process of designing and creating, but my passion is in sharing the craft and teaching others.
I am a San Francisco-based artist and sewing instructor. Learning how to sew is very empowering and satisfying. I would like to help you accomplish your goals in a fun and productive way.
In my sewing classes, I teach small groups of 5 or six students, I adapt to each one's project, so that every student leave with a personal creation. I teach on how to be creative with recycled materials and how to work with different fabrics, how to come up with unusual pieces with the traditional techniques, but also by breaking the rules. Just an overall an instructional and fun experience.
I use art as a way to teach people how to access their creative mind. You may have heard talk about a right brain and left brain thinking; I am here to tell you we all have both. Nobody is running around with half of their skull empty. We expect everyone to learn math and english even when they are more artistic. We should challenge everyone with creative exercise in the same way. You are as creative as you train yourself to be. Children are really good at it because they don't set limits. So why not encourage them to stay creative? I work with my students in a very different way, I do not hold up an example of my work and make them copy it, nor do I purchase kits for them to make. As a matter of fact I don't even care if they make a finished product at all. I introduce a combination of materials each session and I explain how they are to be used and what I get them to do. I then invite the students to try. My greatest joy comes when one or two look up and say "can we do whatever we want"? Such a request screams to me. There is no intention of a final product, just a child asking if they can explore their own imagination. This is where genious lives, and this is how I teach. I can come to your home or to your school. I am available to help you reevaluate your current art program. I am also available to adults and corporations who are looking for executive training in creativity and managing creative people.
