About Jeanne


Bio

I have enjoyed sewing since I first learned in 8th grade. (That was in 1968). In my youth, I made clothes for myself. As my family grew, I made clothes for my daughter and costumes for all three of my children, as well as costumes for their lower school musical productions. I also made many of the curtains and drapes for my house. I would most enjoy - and would be most effective - teaching a novice. You would get more out of the experience if you had your own machine, and could practic...

I would most enjoy - and would be most effective - teaching a novice. You would get more out of the experience if you had your own machine, and could practice between tutoring sessions.

Better than expected.

I am 66, a guy who never sewed in his life. Wait, I think I made a puppet in 3rd grade. But nothing since. I bought a sail-maker's sewing machine. I have a dodger on my sailboat that needs to be replaced. The winter cover is in taters. My motorcycle cover is sadly lacking. I want a cover for my rowboat, surf ski, and sailboat dingy. I am hoping to make a canvas top for my 1950 Jeep that is getting a new engine. I have sooo many projects and plans. I'm excited because after only a couple of hours with Jeanne, I feel all of these projects will soon be within my skill set. She is very knowledgeable and rather concerned that my fingers get too close to the needle : ) I'm more that happy with her knowledge, patience, and concern for my safety as well as making me understand, not just showing me how something works. We've already made plans for lesson two. Zipper is done, now to the rest of the project! Jeanne is an excellent teacher and I would recommend her to anyone looking for sewing help.

The Old Fashion Way

Jeanne and I have been working on three different outfits. Some of the required skills can be difficult to master. As Jeanne mentioned we have been trying to complete the last section of buttonholes. I could not completely remember the set up with my machine. So over the last week, I went to the internet to see if I could look up information on my machine. I found that people blog questions about techniques that Jeanne has shown me (eg how to do shirring). No one had the technique that she showed me or an understanding of the importance of simple steps (pinning) that will assist you in your work. This is why a titled this review the Old Fashion Way. I am an apprentice learning from a master with the ability for questions and inquiry that goes beyond a video or blog spot. This is the best part of tutoring. Very Grateful.

Great Tutor

Jeanne has helped me learn how to use my machine, practice the skills she's taught me and begin and finish a first project - all in three sessions.
