Pattern and Sewing help


5 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Mar 16, 2017

I have many years of sewing experience. If you having trouble with your machine or a pattern, etc., I can skype with you for 1 hour , or meet in person to advise you. I'm familiar with sewing machine troubleshooting, as well as complex sewing patterns.

I can help you troubleshoot machine problems, pattern fit problems, and other dilemmas.
I can help you choose appropriate fabrics for your project.
I can help you develop a custom pattern, or alter an existing pattern. Altering an existing pattern is much easier of course.
I have specific experience with home sewing machines, blind hemmer, and consew 206rb5 industrial leather sewing machine.

I am located in Ohio, USA, and am willing to meet in person. I can Skype with you too I guess?
I am willing to give an overview of using a sewing machine if you are new to this skill.

Training & Qualifications

I run my own business in sewing, leathercraft and millinery. I own multiple sewing machines, and have sewn all sorts of things from Elvis costumes to wedding gowns.
I currently teach leathercraft in Ohio.

Availability & Preferences

Since I run my own business I am very flexible. Let me know the best time for you and I can probably make it work.

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

I am a self employed mother of two. I enjoy boardgames, politics, history, math, business...and a few other things. Oh, I also enjoy science, which is good, since my SO is a scientist. I primarily d...o and teach leathercraft. I'm also a self-taught milliner (hatmaker). I sew, and can alter and make patterns. I'm handy, I am the one who fixes things in my household. I've done some writing and some proofreading and editing. I'm currently teaching, and developing some new leather products, and taking care of my family. I enjoy teaching and giving back and paying it more
