Private Lessons for Adults and Children

$45 per hour

We offer one on one sewing lessons personally crafted to your skill level and project interests. As we have found that the schedules of New Yorkers (children included) are quite full, private lessons are the best way to get new skills that can fit into your busy schedule. We normally start kids on the sewing machine as early as 7. Send us and email at flirtbrooklyn@gmail.com today to set up a lesson.
