I was pretty intimidated by my sewing machine but Jesy was a wonderful teacher who explained things at my level and was patient with my questions. I had a great time and am looking forward to taking more classes! I HIGHLY recommend Needle Ink & Thread! Plus...she hemmed several pants for me and did a fabulous job!

Just finished a private lesson with Jesy. We had a great time and I learned so much. She helped me to get over my serger fear and helped me alter a pattern that I've been struggling with. She has so much knowledge and she makes it fun! I highly recommend taking a lesson from her!!!!

Extremely impressed and sincerely greatful! When my father passed away in 2013 I promissed myself to return his ashes to Scotland. This past June I was finally able to fulfil the pledge. I organized a traditional Scottish memorial service on the shores of Loch Lomand and planned to wear a complete Kilt wordrobe. I had a custom kilt made in for me Ayrshire Scotland. It...Read on my friend!

About three and a half years ago (2012), I decided to dust off my Aunt's old sewing machine and learn to sew. I set up a private lesson with Jesy when she was at Sew Dayton and it was one of the best decisions I have made. In our first private lesson, Jesy taught me how to use my machine-how to thread it, clean it,...Read on my friend!

I have taken several group and private sewing lessons with Jesy including machine basics, alterations, dress making, and hand embroidery. Each time I complete a lesson I leave feeling confident, encouraged, and full of excitement for all that I can create. Jesy is an excellent teacher who is clear, kind, and an absolute blast to be around. Jesy is truly an energy giver and makes...Read on my friend!

Jesy is a patient and kind sewing teacher. She was able to break down the process of sewing scarves for my 9-year-old stepdaughter and not only explained how to sew, but lead us through each step. Jesy will show you how to do it, but makes you do the work while she guides you. Her passion for sewing and people is a true joy to...Read on my friend!

I moved to Dayton in August of 2014 and immediately started taking lessons at Sew Dayton. Since then I have taken several private lessons with Jesy. My favorite would have to be the tank top dress she helped me make. Each time I learn something new about sewing. I've made so many amazing things working with Jesy. My sewing skills have increased so much with...Read on my friend!

I took a private class with Jesy on turning big bulky t-shirts into custom fit tee's. It was so much fun using their awesome new machines that sew and trim in one step! Jesy is a great teacher with a positive attitude and lots of energy. Danielle D'Eramo, justsayit.biz

When my grandmother passed I found a sewing machine still in the box, never used. I've always sewn by hand so I thought it would be cool to try to use the machine. I tried YouTube first, but it was hard for me to follow. When I took it to Sew Dayton Jesy made it so simple, even with an outdated machine that isn't made...Read on my friend!

I used to play around with my Grandmother's sewing machine when I was young, but I had no formal training. I decided to take a private lesson with Jesy instead of a class, because there were specific techniques that I wanted to learn (though I think the classes look like fun too!). Jesy taught me how to make the zippered pouches that I now sell...Read on my friend!
