Beginning Sewing Lessons

20


20 simbi per hour

I would love to help you learn some of the basics, either on hand stitching (buttons and such), or on machine. I have a couple of machines in my home that I'm happy to start someone on, but I could also help you out with your machine. We could focus on clothing repair, so you can tackle your own mending pile, or we can make a thing from start to finish. This could be as simple as an apron, or we can delve into a costume for a specific event. Let's sew!!

Training & Qualifications


I have been sewing for more than 20 years, mostly self taught, but I continue to take lessons and further expand my knowledge.

Availability & Preferences


I work from home, in the CD, nearly every day, and most evenings.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I really love the idea of the Barter System! It feels like this tech is actually returning us to a slightly more simple time, where we all know the value of our work, and wish to trade accordingly.

I can't stand weeding. In theory, it should appeal to my slight OCD brain, but I just can't. Help? It's not a terribly large area, just a little fenced in patio, but it needs some love. It is cu...

About Amethyst Beach

Seattle Native, or just about, who loves the rainy days that make me stay inside and work on one of my many sewing projects. I have also recently gotten really into coloring, I find it incredibly calm...ing, as well as creatively inspiring. It sorta gives me a chance to figure out sewing math or fit issues. I do still have a "Day Job", in that I work for a local celebrity chef in one of her 3 restaurants (guess who?!). That takes up 3 nights a week, generally, so the rest of the time I can "play in my sewing room". show more
