Pattern Fitting & Garment Sewing Classes

Private classes are designed to improve both your fitting and sewing skills.  Students are most passionate when they are working on a project they love, which is why I tailor my sewing lessons around the student's chosen project, instead of a canned curriculum.

Private classes are $70/hour.
If you purchase several hours at a time, I offer the following discounts:
8 hours of consulting time $532 (5% discount)
12 hours of consulting time $756 (10% discount)
24 hours of consulting time: $1428 (15% discount)
