About Me

the crafty gemini sewing coop  

Hi there!

I’m Vanessa, a.k.a- the Crafty Gemini! I am the Owner & Instructor at The Sewing Coop in Gainesville, FL.

This new studio offers sewing, quilting and crafting classes for everyone!

I have been teaching sewing & quilting for the past 10 years and have taught millions of students all around the world with my instructional videos and in-person workshops! I’m mostly known for my very popular YouTube channel where I post instructional video tutorials. I currently have over 448,000 subscribers and my videos have been viewed over 45 million times worldwide. I have been featured on ABC’s 20/20, The New York Times, ABC World News and in magazines like Quilty, Parents Latina, Modern Patchwork and Modern Quilts Unlimited. I have also been a guest instructor on multiple PBS television shows such as It’s Sew Easy, Sew It All and Knit & Crochet Now!

I credit my instructional style with my global success and now I’m excited to be able to offer my teaching skills to you with in-person classes, workshops and retreats right here at The Sewing Coop! At the studio we offer sewing & quilting classes for students from ages 7 – adults. We homeschool our own children (ages 6 and 8) and taught them how to sew on a sewing machine starting at age 3. You can watch how I did it here. 

The Sewing Coop is located at 706 NW 23rd Ave., Gainesville, FL 32609.
