It was a very fun and informative class. I’ve been avoiding sewing machines all my life because they were frustrating to learn on my own. This class made it so simple! I hardly had any issues making the project. I recommend if you are feeling timid about learning. It’s worth it!

Mary was awesome (patient and thorough); her communication skills were keen and it was easy to understand her instructions. I informed Mary that when I sign up for my next sewing class I would ask for her as my instructor.

The first part of the class was an intro to how to use the sewing machine. The instructor was patient and showed the details. The second part was to make our own skirts. The instructor started 30 minutes late (because a student was having lunch) and we were not able to finish the skirts. That's just frustrating and I wish the class was better organized and timed. The instructor was very patient and answered the questions. We just didn't have enough time. I was surprised that she didn't say or do anything to speed up a little bit.

The instructor is very knowledgeable about sewing and is there to really guide you as you make your project. She explains everything without making assumptions that you know something about sewing which is good because it reinforces or corrects what you think you knew. Students were at different levels but she was able to accommodate all levels of learning.

Such a fun class. I learned a ton, the instructor was great, the other students great. All around i loved it and can't wait to keep learning more and more. (And it wasn't bad on video at all.)

Instructor not very motivated to teach. Nice enough, but impatient. Didn’t know my BROTHER machine; therefore wasn’t able to fully help me. Not sure if I should blame instructor or owner. She also answered some questions wrong. Once we ended the awkward online session, I googled how to set up/ thread BROTHER sewing machine and learned more in an 8 min video than in my PAID hourly session.
