Lessons With Tonya
Tonya is a garment-making extraordinaire. She makes all kinds of clothing; from constructing most of the things that she wears to stitching fabulous cosplay costumes from scratch and everything in between, she can do it all! Her knowledge of sewing is extensive, and she is also incredibly skilled in sewing accessories and in general sewing.


You should book a private lesson with Tonya if…
You want to learn how to sew. Additionally, if you think that you’d like to make clothes in the future, you should definitely book a class with Tonya as she can begin to explain the garment-making basics during your first lesson.


These are the lessons that she offers:

  • Machine Familiarization - Do you have a sewing machine and want to learn how to use it? This is the lesson for you! Our instructor will teach you how to operate the machine safely, and will go over threading, winding a bobbin, changing needles, using the stitches, and more. At the end of the session, you’ll practice your new sewing skills on a small project. 


  • Introduction To Garment-Making - Tonya will give you the lowdown on all things garment-making. You’ll explore how to read a pattern, learn how to find fabrics to make your clothes, get the basics on sizing, and set-up a machine for garment-making. You may not be able to finish a project during this lesson, but you’ll receive all of the basic information to get you started. (You can always book a second lesson if you need it!)

When you book a lesson with Tonya, you'll only be going over ONE one of these topics. Even if you're only interested in learning how to use a machine and the lessons that are available fit your schedule, go ahead and book a session!
