Excited to Make Your Own Regalia

But Not Sure Where to Begin? 
I'm Here to Help! 

Over the last two decades, I've taught so many students how to design and sew their own Regalia from scratch. Now, I've turned my in-person classes into helpful videos you can watch from home.

You want to make your own Regalia so you can experience the joy of reclaiming your culture. But it can be overwhelming to know how and where to begin. I never want any of my students to feel alone in the process of making Regalia, so I created a series of videos that walk you step-by-step through each stage of designing, cutting and sewing your Regalia (and I am continually adding to the collection with new, helpful lessons!) 

With a monthly subscription, you can access a video library that help you learn as you go, and overcome any challenges you might face. For only $20/month, you can get all the guidance you need to start and finish your Regalia patterns!

Meet Your Teacher, Deanne Hupfield

Indigenous Arts Educator. Powwow Dance Teacher.
Cultural Competency Keynote Speaker. 

Every Indigenous person deserves to know and experience their culture so they can heal and pass it on to the next generation. Learning to make your own Regalia and dancing powwow connects you to your culture, yourself and others in our community. 

I’m Deanne Hupfield, a powwow dance teacher and Indigenous arts educator. I create Regalia patterns and online Regalia-making tutorials for Indigenous people who want to reconnect with their culture. 

Over the last 20 years, I’ve taught thousands of Indigenous students how to make their own Regalia and dance powwow.

Participating in powwow dance and fashion started my healing journey. I want to share this healing experience with you too.

Helpful Videos
for Beginners and Experts

No matter your skill level, I've created my videos so that you can learn the basics and higher-level skills at your own pace. With a monthly membership, you can revisit demos and instructions as many times as you need. 

My most successful students have enjoyed the video lessons, because it's helped them face challenges and fix mistakes with clear advice, and confidence.

...Her tutorial videos are very detailed, and she breaks it down in simple and easy to follow steps.  I especially like the fact, you can work at it at your own pace, there is no weekly scheduled meetings, you just sign into her webpage to watch the videos, learn the no rush or pressure to get it done within a specific timeframe!!!  I would suggest her workshops to anyone who is interested in learning to make a regalia. Best investment ever!!

Here's How It Works

I've made it really easy for you to get started no matter what level of experience you have with sewing. 

Select Your Pattern

I will mail you the pattern after you've ordered it. It should arrive within 2 weeks (or 4-6 weeks for international orders). 

Become a Member

I'll walk you through foundational sewing skills, how to use your sewing machine, and a practice session first. Then from there, we'll start designing your very own Regalia!
