I recently took classes with Beatrice. I'm a beginner at this and very pleased with her knowledge, patience and passion for sewing. She always make sure you understand what your doing before your lesson ends. She's a great teacher and wonderful person. Her passion for it makes me look forward to my next lesson. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

It was my pleasure to have beatrice as a teacher she shared her knowledge,skills and understanding. Mrs. Beatrice was well organized she had material, patterns, all tools needed to get to work. She explained step by step and hands-on at my speed as a new sewing student. I look forward to telling my friends and family my experience i had with beatrice.
