About Us

Helen Jaeger- Owner

Sewing is my absolute favorite thing in the world. My grandma taught me how to sew at a very young age, and it has been my passion throughout life. I studied Fashion Design and Construction with a focus on costume at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising FIDM. I have spent the past 10 years working as a costume designer, wardrobe coordinator, seamstress, sewing teacher, and designer. I am a mother of 3 wonderful children who are, by far, my best creation.

Sew San Diego

Sew San Diego is providing a fun, youthful, and memorable sewing experience. I have developed a signature approach to sewing that makes it easy for people of all ages and abilities to be successful and have an enjoyable and memorable lesson. 


My goal with Sew San Diego is to share and my passion for sewing and design with my community, and inspire a younger generation to be creative and explore and develop a unique, personal sense of style.
