Student Comments

I recently took the Sewing class. It was so useful to have expert 1-on-1 help on a range of topics. Now, I can sew my clothes at home.

Sarah Kummerfeld,

My motivation for taking the Sewing class was to get help on my current projects. I finished many of my projects and got wonderful help. The teacher passed on many personal techniques, which you only get from experience. Now I will continue to make quilts and crafts.
