Vena is very knowlegable about patternmaking and haute couture techniques. Besides, that she also helps me to see exactly were difficulties could come up, so that I wouldn't get into the usual beginner troubles!

As a person, she is calm and positiv minded. If you search for someone that knows a lot, has experience in the industry and it super precise- I can really recommend her!

I was having issues modifying patterns. Vena helped me understand how pattern making works and how to resolve my issues. She is knowledgeable and a natural teacher. What could have been complicated and difficult to learn was easy and straightforward. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Karl is a nice teacher. He is very professional, teaching me different techniques and theories. He also teaches things that other teachers haven't taught me, such as hand positions in the bell and how to get clearer/better sounding notes. I have learned a lot from him.

Gina
I am an extreme beginner (who tried unsuccessfully to self teach) and I was extremely happy with my first lesson. The instructor was very patient, and her instructions were clear and easy to follow. She easily answers any questions that come up. She made it seem completely possible to conquer the techniques that seemed so daunting on my own! I’m excited for lesson 2 :)
Adele
Erin was a great teacher, very helpful!
Julia
Update to my last review: Changing to five stars. Erin immediately responded to my complaint about the camera picture quality and has made adjustments to what I see through her camera when we have lessons. She took my concern very seriously and I'm really glad to now be able to confidently give her lessons five stars!

"Very friendly and patient Tutor. My daughter was introduced to the game for the first time and she has learned a lot in the last 3 sessions. Curriculum used is very good. Introduces a new idea everyday and winds up the session with practicing what was taught earlier that session."

"My grand-daughters (10-14) visited Crafty Table during the Thanksgiving Holiday of 2014 when they traveled to Chicago from Phoenix, Az. They were introduced to hand-stitching & how to thread a sewing machine. They made wallets& pillows from a wide variety of fabrics & stuffing material. They arrived hesitant of their skills but left capable of describing their projects in-depth. Using millinery terms. They even helped me to construct a beautiful pillow that I treasure from that day. The Crafty Table Sewing Day with their Chicago Grandma ranked higher than Navy Pier in their memory banks!"
