Learn to Sew Like a Pro
Reviewed by Ambar G. on 7/6/2018
I had a great experience. If you have never used a machine before the class moves quickly so make sure to check in with the instructor if you get lost or confused. The instructor was patient, approachable and was able to check in on all students.

Really great class and awesome teacher just slightly over crowded (many students with one off questions / hard to get necessary attention and hard to get access to overlock machine plus irons).

I loved the classes because I didn’t know anything about using a sewing machine and now I know it.

I feel a lot more comfortable sewing. The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful. However, the classes did feel rushed.

It is a good course and the teacher is amazing. However, if you are truly a beginner you can find it a little difficult. it would have been perfect if there were a couple of classes more.
