I had the good fortune to take Michelle Kim's hand sewing class. Michelle is an extremely accomplished artist and sewist, and a superb teacher. She has as much patience, as she has attention to detail (which is remarkable!). She works with each and every student, and coaxes and encourages individual accomplishment. The class is a must have for your sewing toolkit!
