    Brilliant sewing course


    I am so pleased with this course.
    It is paced correctly, well timed videos that can be followed, each step is well explained with the right content and short enough and not long winded.

    Videos are very clear and well demonstrated.

    The written notes are well laid out, very clear and filled with a wealth of knowledge yet very concise.

    For the price, this is well worth it. I am going through the resources first and then I’ll start working through them daily to practice what is being taught.
    This is a real masterclass for the beginner sewer and in the comfort of one’s home. About a year ago, I attended 4 sewing lessons, 2hrs per session. It was a good course but I can truly say that this course is just as good and better in my opinion because the teacher covers more than what was covered in the classes I attended including patterns, pattern books, different seams and how to make them and so much more and in the shortest amount of time!

    I am so glad I purchased this course.

    Great Beginner Course


    The instructor provides a step by step orientation to the basics of sewing and includes important information regarding fabrics, thread, and common terms. This course is great for absolute beginners because the instructor formats the course in easy to understand segments that can be followed by a novice. I’ve taken in-person classes and they skip over a lot of the detail and instruction that this course offers. I highly recommend taking this course if you are a complete beginner!
