Our private sewing lessons and sketching/fashion illustration lessons for children, teens and adults can cover beginner, intermediate and advanced sewing, fashion illustration and portfolio development. We work on easy to use Singer sewing machines in our fully equipped sewing studios. You can even bring in your own sewing machine for a lesson on how to use it! We do our best to pair you with an instructor who will fit your specific needs. Our One-on-One Lessons are sure to have you sewing in no time!
