I highly recommend Julia Husch. She offers Fashion sewing classes for students age 9+ at the Albany and Lafayette community centers. Visit to view the classes offered.

I would like to highly recommend Marianne Henri of Sew Much Fun in Albany mjhenri [at] My daughter started taking classes with Marianne at around age 10 and continued all the way through college. Now she is an accomplished seamstress. Marianne is an amazing teacher with lots of energy and dedication. In the process my daughter also learned lots about patience, creativity and precision, as well as the joy of making something yourself and then getting to wear it!
