I have a bachelor's degree in Fashion Design from Ray College of Design-Ray Vogue. I am working in fashion for 19 years. I used to own a fashion house in Athens, where I designed and created my own garments.

Through my work I was taught the power of communication. I have won twice an award from the Chicago Fashion Group Competition and I was chosen by the Air France Competition to participate in fashion shows in New York. I also exposed my work in Merchandise Mart.

All these years,I shared my love for designing and sewing with people who had the same passion.
Offering comprehensive sewing instructions to all ages and for all stages of sewing expertise, I trained students to become tailors, fashion designers or accessories designers.

Sewing is art and to make your fantasy garment a reality, you need to know how to put your idea on paper, make the pattern and sew the garment. I have been professionally sewing for 12 years in Europe and the last 6 years in Chicago.

My knowledge in textiles and my sewing/pattern making skills make me able to commit to work with students with an encouraging teaching style. I can also teach you how to make pattern fitting, bridal, hats, handcrafted jewelry, bags and embroidery. My goal is to help you master the sewing techniques and to bring out the creative artist to everyone.

I was born in Greece and Greek is my native language. I also teach both kids and adults in all levels, Greek as a second language. I worked with elementary, middle school students and college students, and know how to motivate them learning and encouraged them to live up to their true potential.
As a mother of three, I know very well how to intervene with challenging student behavior.
I am committed to providing the highest quality in Greek language teaching and to help my students to develop their confidence in Greek.

Private and group lessons are available.

Painting

When I was in elementary school, I attended a french school for drawing and painting in Athens, named ABC. My passion for art drove me to attend college for fashion illustration and figure drawing. I learned techniques for painting which helped me to present my work professionally. Today after 19 years working in the fashion field, I can teach students how to draw professionally as fashion illustrators and to work with kids and beginners to learn the basics in drawing and painting.

Wonderful tutor who is very encouraging.

Athanasia is an excellent tutor that has provided me with guidance in the area of sewing, as well as fashion illustration. She is very patient and takes time to make sure that I have understood all aspects of the patterns before I begin construction of a piece. Her background in fashion design allows her to explain in great depth the details of sewing and she conveys her knowledge with great clarity. Not only have I increased dramatically in my sewing expertise, but I have greatly improved my sketching skills because of the techniques she has taught me as well. I have mastered the use of watercolors as well under her guidance. I have worked with Athanasia for numerous sessions, and each time she is punctual and thoughtful in her presentation of both knowledge and materials. It is because of Athanasia's encouragement and belief in my abilities that I have grown in my confidence as an artist. I highly recommend Athanasia as both a sewing instructor, as well as an art instructor. She is an extremely talented, warm, and encouraging tutor who can help others reach their individual goals, whether they want to learn to sew or compose a portfolio in fashion.
