COVID-19 update: I am not yet open for classes or lessons, but I am available for some types of contract sewing work and am filling face mask orders (below). If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly. Stay safe and well. 

Custom face masks are now available for order and can be picked up from my studio or shipped to locations in the United States. See styles here. 

Welcome to Tilden House Studio, the private workshop of sewing instructor Allison Lince-Bentley. At my home in Brentwood, Maryland (on the border of Washington, DC) I offer small group sewing classes and private lessons for children and adults, with a focus on garment construction. Learn more about my offerings and approach to learning here.
