  • As a Middle School teacher, and retired toy designer, Adriana wanted to share with all aged learners the skill of hand sewing. Until today, she is surprised to experience young students lacking the ability to tie a knot, thread a needle and basic hand skills. She assumes this is the result of today's ever-demanding technology focused world. Students no longer practice simple hand skills. Adriana's goal is to teach this life skill in a fun way that engages students to continue to want to learn as they create awesome projects they will be proud of.

  • You can easily view all of the courses offered by clicking on "Explore Courses" on the top tool bar of the home page. Hand sewing courses begin with the very basics of hand sewing techniques, to hand sewing basic pillows, to larger detailed pillows, to stuffed toys, etc... If you are new to sewing, Adriana recommends following the courses in order. But if you already know how to sew, or even know how to machine sew, then go ahead and skip around to any course you prefer.
