Learning to do alterations?
Want to learn to do your own alterations? It’s not that hard! I can teach you in private lessons or in a group class! Once you learn to sew your own alterations, you will save money, not have to wait 1-2 weeks for your garment back, and you will have a sense of accomplishment through self-sufficiency!
Private lessons are perfect for those that want to learn specific skills regarding alterations. There are some really common alterations that are super simple and will allow your clothing to shine on your body!
Tailoring can really help elevate your look, as well as once you understand basic items, you can even start doing them for others and make a little extra income on the side. Alterations are time-consuming and take practice, but if you can become proficient at doing them, you will always have work!
It’s really hard to find good alterations specialists as well as finding them period, the decline of home economics meant fewer people learning to sew or cook, and we want to change that for sure! We want to show you how to sew and learn a skill that you will always be able to provide for yourself and others! The pandemic showed us really how much this skill needs to be taught and learned. It’s also a skill that has not been automated by machines! Every item that you touch that has stitching, has been sewn by someone. And I think that is pretty cool!
