This class changed my life!

I always have avoided hand sewing as much as possible, but after watching Susan's class, I am a total convert. I learned lots of techniques to make it enjoyable, and now I can bring my sewing projects on long car rides-- I never could do that with a machine. I also loved learning how to mark the other side of the fabric (place the wax face up and put the fabric on top).

This is an invaluable class for anyone who sews!

Back when the "creative" TV channels offered sewing programs I always watched Susan's show and loved it. I was delighted to find this course on Craftsy. I'm one of those people who likes to spend time in stores really looking at the high end garments and trying them on to see how they are made, etc. I want my garments to look like they are couture with out a couture price tag! This course is THE way to have those clothes. I really don't think we can put a dollar value on all of ...

Wonderful class and AMAZING instructor.

This is a wonderful and very instructive class. Every second of it is filled with tips of very useful information. It is an advance class and I wouldn't recommend it if you are beginning to sew, because it is fast paced and it might become a little overwhelming instead of enjoyable. Mrs Susan is a terrific instructor and the information she provides is not only useful to sew dresses, but it could easily transferable to make almost any other garment. Thank you very much for this class!

So much information!

I don't know how I ever managed to sew anything before this class. I learned so much! Underlining, waist stays, horsehair braid, catch stitching, hand picked zippers and more and more. I followed every step of the class (eh, except sleeves). I love Susan's teaching style. It feels like she's talking to me. I can't recommend this course enough.

Great for anyone

This is exactly how I expect a sewing class to be. I haven't even finished it yet but it is clear, concise, and doesn't skips steps. It shows everything in detail. She is very comfortable teaching, easy to understand. I love this class. She is right up there with Alison Smith as awesome teacher.
