Loved this class!! Jessie was an awesome teacher. Super cute, talented, clear, and easy to learn from. 3 weeks also felt like the perfect amount of time for what we learned. Definitely interested in taking more CraftJam classes in the future!

Let me first say that I was really terrible at making the patch which is no one's fault but my own. Although the instructor was very nice, I felt he lacked in demonstrating the techniques and guiding us. He could have been more hands on with those that we struggling. The location was great. A beautiful studio and for people such as myself driving into NYC, free street parking was appreciated. I would give another course a try. As far as embroidery, I think with my skills I need to invest in a machine.

I cannot tell you how much this class exceeded my expectations. Olivia is an incredible instructor. So positive and upbeat, makes you feel like you can do anything. Even though it was brand new and a bit difficult at first, I never once thought that I may not have a fantastic finished product at the end of class. And Chris her assistant was lovely. Also very supportive and knowledgeable. Was such a fun three hours. Have already told all my friends about it. Couldn’t do anything to improve the class, in my opinion. Can’t wait to get my supplies and start etching! Thank you!!!!

This was a great class! Jessie is awesome and really spent time with each person in there. Even if you’re a complete beginner or a professional letterer you’ll get something out of this class.I definitely recommend it! The part about making prints of your work however does happen rather quickly, and if you aren’t familiar with the programs you’re probably not going to get much out of it. If you are already familiar then she’ll definitely give you some cool ideas for making prints!

Great class! Melissa was very sweet and encouraging and I like that it was very free-form rather than "you have to embroider this." I do, however, feel that because I was at the back of the class I could not see the stitching she was doing, especially because the thread and fabric were both very light colors. I would suggest using something like a black thread on white fabric for better visibility, and to do the stitching examples from both sides of the table, or have everyone come gather closer during that 10 minutes. Had fun and loved BYOB!

This class was super fun and easy to follow. I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to produce something that looked finished since the length of the class is only 2 hours and I knew little to nothing about hand lettering, but our instructor (Jessie) was awesome and made sure nobody was left behind! She has a lot of experience with hand lettering and led us through step-by-step instructions that culminated in a finished print for us to take home. Each person's print was unique and different, but they all looked polished. You'd never know we were all total amateurs + the class really made it easy to produce something beautiful. I definitely recommend this class and plan to take another one at CraftJam soon!

This lettering workshop was exactly what I was looking for - something fun and relaxing to do after work that would result in a final lettering piece! The class size was small, the instructor was able to give everyone the attention they needed. Experience levels ranged throughout the class (from first-timers to a lot of experience) and the instructor was great at adapting the lessons to each experience level. Any and all questions were encouraged, and it was the perfect escape from the hectic NYC work week! All supplies were provided - my only comment is that I wish there was a greater collection of high quality markers to choose from for the final project (I suggest colored Micron pens!) - I would have brought my own markers if I knew that there was a limited supply. Regardless, after this class I had a beautiful final piece and I would recommend this class to a friend.
