My 8 year old daughter recently began sewing lessons with Beatrice and she (and I) have been learning how to sew by hand. We haven’t even started to learn how to use our new sewing machine yet but we are already enjoying it so much. My daughter dreams of becoming a fashion designer and learning how to hand sew and threading needles and sewing buttons are excellent activities for developing her fine motor skills. I look forward to spending an hour/week learning a new skill together and seeing her gain confidence. That in itself is very rewarding. Beatrice is a wonderful, professional, and patient teacher and we connect remotely via WhatsApp which is working well.

Details: No experience • 6 - 9 years old • No, but the student is planning to purchase one and would like the teacher's advice on it • 60 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Beatrice is great! We’re working on a dress 👗 and I’m really happy with the way it’s coming out. Some highlights of her classes: 🪡 She bought the same pattern and she’s making the dress as well! 🪡 She shows me the step by step on her pieces - the fabric and pattern she’s using. 🪡 She uses a dress form to show me the dress on the mannequin, it’s really helpful. Beatrice is a gem!

Details: Intermediate • 26 - 44 years old • Yes, the student has a sewing machine • 45 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Beatrice is not only an excellent teacher but a meticulous seamstress. I am a beginner and I wanted to learn the basics of sewing on my particular machine and stitching in line. Beatrice was extremely knowledgable about the features on my particular machine and showed me some shortcuts. She demonstrated techniques for me and had me model them. I left feeling much more confident. I would highly recommend Beatrice!

Details: Beginner • 45 - 64 years old • Yes, the student has a sewing machine • 60 minutes • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Thank you Lourdes, I’m glad I was able to teach them all I had planned for the hand sewing. They were fun to teach :-). Thank you again!

Beatrice was so patient with me. She helped me take my machine apart completely only to put it back together myself. Now I am more knowledgeable and confident in my sewing abilities, as well as trouble shooting any future problems. I would definitely use her again and I recommend her to anyone who is struggling with sewing or machine set up.

Thank you Rana, you did a good job and I’m glad to hear it’s still working fine.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I require 1- 2 hour classes I have discounted packages that require to pay in full to get a discount. Please call or text me for more information. There is a $15 cancellation fee for classes canceled without 12 hours notice.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I provide a prescreening covid 19 document for the client to fill out for new inperson students. I give them a call or email to know more about their goal they want to achieve from the class. Then I tailor make classes to make sure the reach their goal. They come to the class on the appointed/scheduled day and time and we go according to the outline for the class for the day. I give out some work for them to practice at home.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a degree from Parsons School of Design, FIT and i currently work in the fashion industry with over 15 years of sewing and construction experience and 7 years of teaching experience.
