Terrific class and wonderful instructors. I couldn't have been more pleased - plus, I came away with not only a lovely pillow but also a new set of skills.

The class was organized and small-scale enough so that each person could get help and have their questions answered. I liked that you get to take home a finished product! The instructors were very helpful, especially in helping to catch me up when I was running late.

I enjoyed the lessons. I made a fabric purse with a zipper. I am a complete novice and I completed it within the 2 hours. My instructor, Dynasty, was patient and encouraging.

Instructor didn't seem like she knew what she was doing and was distracted. Not a great experience. Wouldn't recommend or take another course there again

Took the group Sewing 101 Bootcamp with TIMOTHY on a Sunday at the Sewing Center on W 38th from 12-8pm. The class was very enjoyable, you basically get an overview of how the machine works, how to prepare you machine to sew. Then you do your first full project with a tote bag from start to finish. We took lunch after completing the first project and after returning we did our second project--either a skirt (fitted) or pants (pajama-y/elastic ones). The second project introduces you to how to read a commercial pattern and how to prepare/pin/cut the fabric for your garment. You get ongoing demos of the techniques and then you are left to your own project, where your instructor can help you when you are stuck. Timothy was very patient. Hours went by so quickly, you just wish you had more time. We were all able to complete our garments but we had to speed a few things up--we only touched on alterations although it felt like we were supposed to be able to go a little more in-depth and hands-on on that portion. However I came out feeling much more confident about my own projects and starting my own garments, so that's the point. I would certainly look into additional courses offered by the same place.
