Tailor with 15 years of experience gives private sewing lesson at your home

Methodology

I love to teach my students the best sewing construction and neatening methods to use and how to achieve quality garments that look professional and fit well.
I try to approach teaching sewing differently than the way I learned.
For me sewing isn’t about obeying rules, I talk about sewing the way I experience it – sewing is about creative expression and a sewing machine is a really effective tool to do it with.

Of course, everything starting to your level.
I have had students off all levels from beginner to advanced and some professional too.
I could adapt my class in function with your project. I have had advanced students which wonted to sew their own wedding dress. I trained the professional seamstress with the haute couture sewing techniques.

During beginner class I teach how a sewing machine works, how to wind and insert the bobbin, how to thread the machine, how to change the presser foot and insert a new needle, how to control the stitch length and width, and what the most useful stitches are. We talk about basic maintenance and essential sewing supplies. Finally, we sew a drawstring bag while talking about how to shop for fabric, how to measure, mark, press and pin, and basic.

Background

Hi, my name is Felicia TELEUCA. I am professional seamstress and teacher of sewing since 2006.
I have experience in women’s sample making, pattern-making and grading. I started a fashion services business in 2010 and since I have successfully developed several services for fashion professionals and private persons across Europe. Since 2011 I did contract work for well-known fashion houses in Belgium, France and Netherlands, where I learnt a wide range of pattern-making, grading, sample-making and haute-couture tailoring techniques. Occasionally, I have classes of design and patterning for my private clients.

Felicia is a very patient teacher who adapts perfectly to student's level and helps them to progress.
It was extremely very nice to follow privte lessons with her during 3 years because she has taught me a lot. Thanks to her, I reached an almost professional level even though sewing is only my hobby.

Felicia have a really good knowledge in fashion (patterning, sawing and creativity). More than that, she explains really well. I always recommend her to my friends who would like to learn how to make a pattern or sawing. She is supper friendly and have patience who are the best quality for teaching.

I have known Felicia for several years. She is a very experienced seamstress, and has worked with a top couture house in Brussels. She also has run her own business, designing and making clothes including party and wedding dresses - she has made several beautiful dresses for me. She has a passion for creating which she loves to share with others. She is a kind, patient and honest person and I would not hesitate to recommend her and her classes to perspective students.

I met Felicia while I was living in Brussels.

She made me a pair of tailored trousers and numerous dresses.

Her work is fantastic. She is very friendly and helpful.

I would recommend Felicia to my best friends.

Felicia has helped me a lot with the construction of bespoke dresses for celebrities and famous personalities here in Brussels, Belgium. I really miss her a lot cause of her professionalism and her friendship now that she has moved to Australia. She actually truely is perfect as a patternmaker and seamstress. It took me years to find someone like her.
