About Renée

Sharing my joy of sewing with you ~

My name is Renée Day, and I conduct private, personalized sewing lessons throughout Los Angeles and South Bay. Offering lessons appropriate for all ages, I am excited to share my love of sewing with both children and adults. 

Let me help you set up your sewing machine and creative space,

and together we will spark magic with fabric and thread!


My background in fashion design originates in my childhood. Taught by my grandmother, I took to sewing and fashion design immediately, and never looked back. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, my body of work includes several years designing and pattern making

in the garment industry and 15 years costume styling for film‚ television, and

commercials. My career has offered unique opportunities to work with many styles,

ranging from modern, to historic, to science fiction. This work necessitated utilizing

all kinds of fabric and materials, as well as niche procedures such as aging and

dyeing fibers.


Recent endeavors have found me exploring the ancient Japanese art of Shibori, from

which the modern process "tie-dye" is descended. This discovery has also given me

another craft I enjoy teaching my clients.

Another medium I am passionate about designing and handcrafting is jewelry, and   

can teach wire wrapping and different beading techniques. 

I can’t wait to help you find your fashion passion!


Working the sewing machine can offer creative freedom to make your dreams come to life.

Here on my site you’ll find the enrollment options for lessons and classes.
