Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Jodi B.

27 Sewing lessons

I wasn't sure what it would be like taking a sewing class over zoom, but she made it work. She basically gave me a beginning sewing class to help me get to know my new sewing machine, and get comfortable sewing on it. I had a traumatic introduction to sewing decades ago with a sewing class in junior high, and Andrea and this lesson increased my confidence. I am so pleased with what she taught me and am planning to take at least a few more lessons.
Paola E.

24 Sewing lessons

She is also very sweet and even stayed an extra time just to help me when I ran into a problem to make sure that I would be able to fix it. She is a great teacher who always ensures that her students are going on the right path, and is so knowledgeable about different sewing techniques and ways to approach a step. Would highly recommend hiring Erika as your sewing tutor.
Lauren A.

1 Sewing lesson

I have no sewing experience but had some ideas about how to incorporate sewing into my work. Not only is Lynette incredible with technique, but she is also very artistic and open to experimental ideas. We shared images and links all the time between sessions, I felt super supported by Lynette as I explored sewing methods to fit my project. I will definitely continue to work with Lynette and highly recommend her for people of all ages and experience levels.
