Have some goals in mind? Let us know or choose from some of our project options.
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 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!
Mentoring has been a huge part of my sewing journey so I want to be that person for you.
I will incorporate different skills into each lesson to help you progress to the next level. I will be with you through every step of the process!
Monthly Lessons Include:
- Four 2 Hour Onsite instruction lessons ($25 an hour!) or zoom if you prefer
- Use of our machines, sewing supplies and patterns during your weekly lessons
- Weekly offsite help every Thursday
*Students will purchase their own fabric and any additional patterns they may want to try that we do not have on site :)
How do your lessons work?
Lessons are taught in my home studio in Lewiston, New York unless pre- arranged prior to lessons starting.
The first part of each lesson provides you with an opportunity to learn a new sewing skill, term or technique. You are encouraged to utilize your sewing journals during this time. Sewing journal kits can be purchased in our shop or bring along your own! The last part of the lesson will be working on whatever project you have chosen. Our lessons are designed to go at your pace. Projects may be taken home each week, but are not required.
I am available every Thursday via text/video message for any questions/ help you may need. I know how absolutely frustrating it can be getting stuck and then you give up! I don't want you to give up :)
Brand new to sewing? Let us save you the grief of shopping for the basics with our startup kit upgrade option. Our start up kits have everything you need except the sewing machine!

*Don't have a machine? WAIT before you buy. You are welcome to use some of mine and get a feel for what makes you comfortable before investing in something! I have tips I've learned over the years in this process I'll pass onto you*
Please note we are currently offering private sewing to females only at this time. We are happy to accommodate men/boys in our group options. Thank you for understanding.
