I'm Dannelle, a homeschool mom of three. I have been sewing for 20 years. My background is in education, children's ministry and Social Work. I am an LMSW for the state of Idaho. I like to combine my love for creativity with my passion for teaching. I began teaching my children to sew when they were four years old. Their excitement and eagerness was contagious. Soon I began teaching my friends children and we've grown from there. I love the countless options fabric provides us to be creative!
My desire is to help your child build confidence, expand their creativity and gain enough skills so they feel comfortable tackling whatever sewing project they dream up next! Mentoring has been a huge part of my sewing journey so I want to be that person for someone else.
I will incorporate different skills into each lesson to help them progress to the next level. I will be with them through every step of the process!

How do your lessons work?
Lessons are taught in my home studio in Lewiston, New York unless pre- arranged prior to lesson start date.
The first part of each lesson provides children with an opportunity to learn a new sewing skill, term or technique. Kids are encouraged to utilize their sewing journals during this time. The last part of the lesson will be working on the weekly project. Our lessons are designed to be finished in the time allowed, but if your child does need extra help they may take it home. We are always available to answer any questions. We will give weekly homework to help children continue in their skills with chances to earn special sewing notions and gifts to add to their sewing stash.
We are available every Thursday via text/video message for any questions/ help your child may need during their homework practice or for projects they didn't finish in class.
Lessons are priced at a discount less than $10 an hour per child. We are cheaper than a nanny and have more fun!
