  • Long-distance private lessons by the hour

    Long distance private lessons are a great if you are not close by and want to have a pro talk you through a sewing concern or to use as follow-up if you’ve taken my virtual fitting classes and would like more help.  Your questions may not take an hour to answer, so we can run the clock and you will keep your time credit for another session with me.  Each question typically takes 10-30 minutes to answer.  If it’s a very involved construction question I may need to have photos and then reproduce a portion of the project to demo the technique.  Email me with inquiries and for scheduling

    We can hold your lesson on Zoom, FaceTime, email or telephone or a combination of these.

    $60/hour
