Another Fantastic Class From Pam!

This is the second of Pam's classes I've taken. I love her teaching style, her sense of humour and her pacing. Like most people, I have problem areas when it comes to fitting. I have used Pam's fitting techniques (including fitting myself) for the last two projects I worked on. I find her no-nonsense approach to fitting to be both easy and effective. Thanks, Pam!

Great teaching.

Pam, I enjoyed your class very much and hope you will give us another class soon. I learned so much from you. I would have like to see your finished jacket. Making a muslin makes so much sense now, thank you so much.

Another Excellent Class

Pam, this is another great class. Your teaching style is very smooth, relaxed and calming. Your knowledge is on point. I now understand how to create a real jacket muslin. Thanks, until your next class.....
