I have been sewing and crafting since I was in 3rd grade. My love for creating with color and texture led me to a BFA in fashion design from Parson's School of Design. I have also supplemented my degree with classes in crochet, basketry, embroidery, soft sculpture. Besides teaching you the basic skills, I will guide you through all the steps of your project so you will experience the thrill and satisfaction of bringing an idea to reality.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Needlework

Needle work is an ancient art that is constant and everchanging to meet our needs. Embroidery, cross stitch, crochet, rug hooking, quilting.

I learned these techniques from my grandmother who mastered them as a young woman in Russia and have utilized them over the years to embellish the clothing and home products I designed and sold for my business Kitsch'n Couture (1989-2000).

Along with the basic technical skills we learn the history of this art and gain a greater appreciation for it.

Sewing

I have a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design and have 25 years experience in design and production in the fashion and textile industry, including owning a successful clothing company. My designs were featured in Vogue, Glamour and other national publications.

I can assist you in the techniques of basic hand stitching and machine sewing your garment as well as the process of pattern making and draping, design and styling, fabric and trim information and sourcing. The fashion design process is multifaceted and fascinating and I am happy to help with any and all aspects from the first stitch to the final product.
