    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 was beautiful, expensive and almost perfect. The kilt shop would normally take all the measurements then do a fitting and tailor it to fit, but that was impossible to do since I was in the states. There was not enough time in my travel plans to…

    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, trouble shooting, etc.-and taught me how exciting the world of sewing can be. I left this lesson knowing so much about my machine and the basics of sewing. For my first lesson project, I made a table runner and quickly signed up for my second…

    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 every learning experience a positive one. I always look forward to my next lesson!  ~Jessica Dobbs

    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 have in our community. We have come back multiple times for project nights and private lessons. I highly recommend her to beginning and advanced sewers! Crissy Lauterbach – Educator

    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 time but it was all due to having a great teacher! Eliza Lemmenes

    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
