July Teaching Schedule!

I'm coming back to Los Angeles soon, and with my return is a return to teaching! Yay! I love my students and really enjoy teaching, so if you're in the area and looking to learn a new skill, I do hope you join me for a class! I have classes for every level!

Since I've been away, developing new samples has been a no-go, so I'm returning with some of my favorite projects, with fun new options popping up in August and September.

Read below for my July offerings and click on the link to sign up directly on the website for the class.  Spaces are limited to either 6 or 8 students depending on the project, so don't wait! Classes get cancelled if there aren't enough sign ups as the date approaches, so if you want to take the class, let us know by signing up! And let me know in the comments if anyone has questions about levels, supplies, and whatnot. All the classes below are held at Sew L.A. in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Thanks and I hope to see you in class!
