This beginning sewing course starts with working and setting up your machine. Learning basic functions, stitches and how to sew straight. We will start sewing a pillow and I'll instruct you how to use an invisible stitch to close.

She was wonderful and easy to work with. We had a bit of a problem to get online but she and I stayed calm and got it worked out! She did alot of research on my altitude which I appreciated! The food tasted delicious! I am looking forward to our next lesson!

Cheryl will readjust if needed to fit your schedule. If you have something you want to learn Cheryl is the instructor you would want every step of the way!

Every beginner wants a instructor who has confidence in the student from the very beginning. Cheryl will give you the confidence you need to want to continue crocheting and be successful at it.

"Sabrina was the most incredibly knowledgeable, patient and helpful teacher. I had just a rudimentary understanding of sewing but with a few short lessons she helped me so much to do so many things. Her knowledge of everything to do with sewing and fashion is just astonishing and her work is impeccable. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn more about sewing or construction."

"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."
