rated 5 stars


I am a long time sewer and learned so many new things to try out on future garments. Alison Smith is such a fabulous instructor! I have taken all of her Craftsy classes and would do another in a heartbeat. Thank you, Alison Smith!

A Superb Class!

Alison Smith is hugely knowledgeable and authoritative. You just feel that everything she shows you how to do is achievable and will give you a professional finish. I'm a confirmed fan.

GREAT class

I especially appreciated the segment on zipper plackets, of all things. It was something I was trying to figure out, and now I know where I was going wrong ;-)

One of many many new techniques I learned. Many thanks.

Master class -- what a delight!

An absolute treat -- Alison, you are really a master teacher! You instruct with poise & clarity, and I so appreciated how the video stayed close with you throughout each step...no fast-forward editing. It was truly like sitting in a room with you and being taught, with care, patience, and attention to detail.
Thank you! I'm looking forward to your other classes -- time & money well spent! And can't wait to put these techniques into practice!
