I felt that it was very basic (Good for the people in the class with no prior sewing knowledge. Bad for me because I did have prior, though rusty, sewing knowledge). I took the class hoping to learn some new techniques but I really didn't feel that I learned anything new. Exposure to the serger was interesting but if you don't have one at home, was it really a meaningful technique for most of the people in the class?

I learned the basic idea of alterations. Definitely should have basic knowledge and beginner's practice sewing with a sewing machine, but the instructor was super helpful in preparing the thread and sewing machine for me and taught me a little how to use it for what I needed to do, so no need to be worried or scared about entering without any experience. It helps, though.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 9/23/2019
Very helpful and practical, and all of us walked away with some knowledge of at least a starting point for altering clothing ourselves at home. The instructor was very nice, the only con is that one student was hogging the professor a bit more than other students, and the two hours flew by so i felt the rest of us did not get as much hands on help compared to the one student.
