SEW LIKE A PRO is for you if:

  • You’ve ever looked at a dress or throw pillow and thought, “I wish I knew how to make that”
  • You’ve bought fabric, patterns (even a machine!) that have gone untouched for fear of sewing badly
  • You’d like to fix broken seams and REPAIR your clothes like a pro and skip the pricey trip to the tailor

In SEW LIKE A PRO, you learn step-by-step how the pros hem, cut, and sew, so you can make good on your desire to sew and make your own gorgeous pieces.

Here’s why you’ve struggled learning how to sew well.

You’ve tried to learn to sew yourself. There are hundreds of DIY sewing books and video tutorials out there, but if you’re learning piecemeal, your sewing will look like it too. Sew Like a Pro teaches you step-by-step (with demos) so you build your skill faster and easier.

Most sewing courses don’t teach the importance of using the right tools. Projects get that “home-sewn” look when you use the wrong needle, thread or scissors. It also makes sewing stressful and frustrating. In this course learn what the pros know about needles, scissors and thread to save time (and toil).

Most home sewers don’t know the insider tips and tricks that take your projects from good to great. You’ll learn plenty of tips and tricks that only the pros know so you can avoid the common pitfalls that lead to projects looking “home sewn.”

Sew Like a Pro is the only one that teaches you how to sew, how to pick and use the right tools so that your projects get that professional, “I can’t believe you made that” look.

By the end of this course you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the important tools of the trade to sew professional-looking pieces
  • Learn pro tips to sew faster and easier
  • Learn how to sew 5 types of stitches to make perfect seams and embroidery
  • Learn how to sew buttons securely so they don’t fall off
  • Know the ins and outs of sewing machines and how to choose one that’s right for your home projects
  • Make up to 12 projects for your home and life

Plus these bonuses:

“I’ve always wanted to learn sewing and have a machine then never get around to it. Monica delivers lots of great information in a calm, easy-to-understand way. I especially loved the slow stitching lessons, it’s so meditative! If someone asked me if they should take Learn About Sewing with Monica, I say, “yes!”

Hello! I'm Monica The Creative Beast!

I’m a professional seamstress, artist, and creativity coach. I’m on a mission to help womxn of color unleash and celebrate their innate Creative Instincts.

This course contains tips and tricks I've learned through my 20-year career as a professional costume constructor in Hollywood and sample maker in the garment industry.

I’ve taught sewing, book arts and other creative workshops for over 10 years. There’s no better feeling than when I hear students say, “oh, this was easier than I thought” and “I can’t believe I made it.”

Everyone is born creative, but society tends to crush this instinct in childhood. I teach Sew Like a Pro and other e-courses so you can reconnect to your Creative Instincts, reconnect to YOURSELF and reclaim the Creative Beast within YOU.
