I enjoy taking lessons with Sarah. As a beginner, she takes the time to explain every detail regarding the photography and the use of my camera. I learn so much after a few lessons.

It can be a challenge to demonstrate online versus being in person. But Sarah effectively showed me - and more - to jumpstart me. I'll be back!

Terry is professional and experienced. Pleasant environment.
Marlene
The teacher was knowledgeable about all aspects of sewing and was able to tell me how to finish off one of my projects that I brought with. It was a jacket and skirt. I needed help mostly with the jacket and mainly understanding the finishing instructions for the jacket. I sewed some in the hour during the lesson and then Terry showed me on the instructions what to do at home. She then asked me to bring a new sewing project that we could start together when I come in two weeks. I would highly recommend Terry to any level of sewer wanting lessons. She is also a very kind lady as well.

Terry is very attentive and detailed, I enjoyed my time with her and I look forward to learning from her more.

I took the class to brush up on my dusty skills and to learn the basics that I never thoroughly understood and After my third class, I felt like I really had learned so much that in my years of sewing, I never knew. She listened to my reasons for taking the lessons and gave advice on where to begin and how to approach the lessons. Annelouise is very sweet and personable, honest and patient. I highly recommend."
