"Getting a trio of opinionated, geeky perfectionists together for a sewing class sounds like a recipe for disaster. But Diana expertly handled our plaintive queries, varying levels of experience, and overall mania with patient aplomb. Plus, her fab sense of style is inspiring, and she makes a mean cup of tea."

Whether you're a new to sewing or more experienced, you're bound to learn something new in my workshops and private lessons, taught in the San Francisco Bay Area.  
My classes are based on good technique and an understanding and love of fabric. My goal is to make sewing an accessible and fun means of expression for everyone, whether you want to learn to make a garment from a pattern, alter and repair your own clothing,  make curtains & pillows or a truly creative costume!
