I teach aspiring creatives how to sew their own clothing with classes that offer fresh perspectives on sewing techniques, clothing construction, pdf and commercial sewing patterns. My goal is to create a personalized experience through small classes and projects designed with a busy lifestyle in mind.  

Private Sewing Lessons

One on one mentoring plans for clothing enthusiasts who want to go further in their sewing and design. Build a hand sewn wardrobe, learn pattern making, and the steps to customize your clothing and design. Work with an actual fashion designer and learn how to make your ideas into real garments that you can wear.

I offer in depth workshops on fashion design concepts and topics. In these live and online classes, you will learn more about planning, editing, and designing closets and collections from the creative approaches to sewing and fashion design that will help make your creations uniquely your own.
 

Learn at home and at your own pace with online courses featuring video lessons geared toward teaching beginner sewists the fundamentals of sewing for garment construction. The video lessons are comprehensive tutorials to walk you through the process of learning to sew and work with sewing patterns.


 
 
I have been wanting to learn to sew for a few reasons. I wanted to create something to call my own. I find the quality of store-bought products have decreased. And, I’m always in admiration of creative people.

The environment at Fair Fit was warm, friendly, and comfortable. I enjoyed the intimate setting and felt comfortable asking questions. Andrea is a natural teacher and obviously an expert at her trade.

I had no idea where to begin sewing, but I definitely wanted to learn a way to make my own clothes. When I went to the beginner sewing class, I bought my machine in the original, unopened box! Andrea taught me everything I need to know about my machine. I really enjoyed making a skirt in the Intro to Clothing class and the sense of accomplishment from learning a new skill and making something I could actually wear. I feel much more confident in my skills and I am now working on my own sewing projects.

I loved this Beginning Sewing and was soon hooked, taking many to follow, including a private lesson or two. This is the first of many classes you will feel compelled to take at Fair Fit. Who knew that learning to sew, design patterns, and acquire construction techniques could be picked up with such ease in a non-intimidating and super fun environment.
