Private Instruction

Would you like to expand your sewing skills with dedicated, one-on-one instruction? Then book an appointment with me for a private tutoring session at Sips n Sews Studio, San Francisco.

I can provide expert assistance to help you with your project, or I can help you develop your skills in the following areas:

  • Construction techniques
  • Sewing with knits and stretch fabrics
  • Pattern making
  • Drafting your own personal pattern sloper (the Moulage)
  • Fitting and pattern alteration
  • Menswear construction, including shirts and trousers
  • Tailoring techniques, hand and machine

You will benefit from my detail-oriented approach to pattern making and garment construction. I will break down every technique step-by-step and explain it as we work through our session together. I will also share tips and best practices to help you get clean, professional-looking results in your own work.

One-on-one instruction is not recommended for new or beginning sewists. You should have advanced beginner or intermediate level sewing skills. Sips n Sews has many affordable classes, including some I teach, that will help you develop or brush up on sewing basics.

Instruction is offered on a per-hour basis, with a minimum of 2 hours for the the first session. Hourly fees are variable and depend upon the nature of the topic or project being covered.

If you are interested, please contact me using the Contact tab and I will follow up with you to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you!
