Private Sewing Lessons

Hand Sewing, Machine, Pattern-making

Amy Brown, owner of Jumbo Jibbles, sewing in her San Jose studio. This is a batch of WATERMELON HANDS, weird funky pillows that look a little fruity, a little zombie. You can see lots of her small fabric sculptures in the background.

Amy Brown is a fabric sculptor, best known as the creator of Jumbo Jibbles.

Want to sew?

Want to brush up on forgotten skills or start from scratch? I have taught hundreds of people of all ages to sew. I have over 10 years teaching experience and would love to help you get into it! I teach hand sewing basics and getting started on your sewing machine. I try to make it less scary!

I have a beautiful studio in San Jose with sewing machines, a serger, large cutting table and space for 6-8 students.  We can formulate lessons based on your skill level and interests.  

House calls available for a traveling fee, depending on location.  

  • Lessons in my studio are $55/hour or $100 for a 2-hour session.  Please contact me for group rates.

  • I provide all machines, necessary tools and thread. 

  • For Intro sewing classes, I provide all materials, including fabric.

  • You only need to bring your own fabric if working on a specific project, such as clothing.

  • I will talk to you before our session about your project so we will be ready to get started!

  • Lessons available weekdays and nights.

  • I work with ages 8 and up.
