Fun basics!

Learned the basics and had a blast! With the skills I learned here, I've been able to use my sewing machine at home to mend some garments and even make a skirt. I hope to take a more advanced class soon!

So much fun!

This class was so enjoyable and thoughtfully structured.

Lisa was so patient and knowledgeable, and it was very easy to follow along. I can't recommend this class enough :)

Loved It!

Lissa was patient, kind and thoughtful. The small group of ladies I got to meet, made each week that much more fun to learn. It was such a wonderful experience, and I'm excited to get my sewing on. Look forward to taking some of the other workshops.

Best sewing classes

I had the best experience taking the 4 week Intro to Sewing class. I came in with zero experience and left with completed projects and the confidence to make more! Lissa is the greatest teacher. She’s kind, insightful, patient, and thoughtful. The classes are very well thought out and each project builds on the next. I can’t recommend this class enough! Excited to continue taking classes here.

Great Class!

I am truly a beginner and by the end of this four week class, I had purchased my own sewing machine and material to start making projects at home and continue with my sewing education. Lissa is a pleasure to be around with and is a wonderful teacher. Her teaching style is effortless and when you come to her with a problem, she often sees it before you even tell her. She also has such a calming effect, that even if you make a mistake, you never get frustrated. We were introduced to so many aspects of sewing, from sewing in a zipper, making seams, learning to work with a pattern, sewing on a surger (now that was fun!) and inserting elastic into a garment. Her knowledge of sewing is never ending. Thank you, Lissa!
