  • Sewing Machine Basics Workshop

    Reviewed by Antonio R. on 3/21/2024
    I really wasn't sure if I'd be ok as a complete novice in this class, but I was and had the BEST time! Two hours flew by. The instructor was a pleasure to work with and I love my little not-so-perfect tote bag. A reminder of which skills I need to work on.
  • Pattern Making for Beginners (1-Hour Private)

    Reviewed by Anki K. on 3/11/2024
    The instructor completely modeled the class specifically for me and I learned exactly what I wanted to learn. I will come back for more lessons. The sign up was a bit confusing as it was not clear that what you were signing up for is a 1 hour personal class. So you must call after signing up and set up a session.
  • Sewing 101: Basics

    The instructor was very patient and attentive, and the projects were appropriate for a beginner.

  • Sewing 101: Create What You Want (2-Hour Private)

    Reviewed by Ryan T. on 2/26/2024
    I worked with Mary and she was a perfect match. I showed up over prepared with my machine and variations of fabric. She jumped right in and provided me with all of the base knowledge I need to jump into sewing including stitching techniques, fabrications, along with the ins and outs of my particular machine. There wasn’t a single question that was left unanswered and she was genuinely down to earth. The two hours flew by and I honestly wish I could rewind that whole day because we worked very well together. I’m so happy I chose this!!
  • Fashion Sketching (Ages 14 and Up) (Virtual)

    Reviewed by Stacey C. on 2/1/2024
    I really enjoyed the class! The instructor was very knowledgeable and gave great lessons and I learned a lot! I've been wanting to take a fashion illustration class for a long time, and this was everything I hoped for. I just wish there was a part 2 of the class!
