Two-hour sessions available by appointment. Book via the scheduling assistant below.

Are you an aspiring sewist who dreams of making their own garments? Do you want to learn how to alter or mend? Do you want to refine your tailoring skills or develop custom patterns?

We are pleased to offer private lessons in beginner, intermediate, and advanced fashion design and construction techniques for youth, adults, and fashion entrepreneurs of all skill levels. Build your mastery of womenswear and menswear garment construction, learn how to set in a sleeve or shirt collar, or simply pursue introductory sewing skills. 

Two-hour sessions are available by appointment for one or two individuals. Book via the scheduling assistant below.

Private lessons are taught by qualified, confident professionals in our well-appointed, organized atelier. We ask you bring two to six recent sewing projects, if any, to your first lesson in order for the instructor to assess your sewing ability and together you can develop a relevant lesson plan to achieve your personal goals.

Beginner lessons may have up to two students in a session. You may bring your own machine from home if you would like to learn with it.
