Sew Basic: Learn to Repair

5


5 simbi per session - Virtual OK

Everyone should learn how to wield a needle and thread. Buttons pop off, seams split, knees wear through, waist bands stretch out...and good clothing is EXPENSIVE. Let me walk you through the most common of repairs and quick fixes, and together we can save that favorite pair of jeans, or make that thrift-store find worth more than you paid.

Training & Qualifications


I have been wielding a needle since my mom could trust me to not swallow one, and I have been using a sewing machine for nearly 15 years. I have been designing clothing and projects for myself and friends for several years. I'm also the go-to for all my friend's sewing fix needs. I love to create, and I love to teach.

Availability & Preferences


Weekday evenings, some Wednesdays and weekends with enough notice. Quick Replies via Simbi mail during business hours.

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

The local time bank is a good idea, but in practice is much more onsite-service focused. I don't have many needs that can be met there. This looks like a much better organized platform, too.

If a Newbi Wants to Reach Me
