I believe no matter your level of sewing (Beginner, Intermediate or Advance), all can benefit from this course. The instructor, Sunni takes her time with explaining and repeating each step and the reasons for the process. You are able to see every step she performs clearly. This free class is very, very informative and detailed.

For a free class - VERY informative. I've been sewing for about 7 years. I'm always reading books, mags and blogs to learn whatever I can about sewing not just for new knowledge but to expand on things I already know how to do. I'm new to Craftsy and before plopping down money on some of the topics I'm interested in I thought I'd start with one of the free classes to see how this works and if it would be worth the cost. This class was great. Straightforward, clear and concise. I think if I ...
In my younger years, I was a sewer and made most of my clothing. Then I didn't sew for about 20 years. I decided to take this class as I needed a refresher on zippering. I love the idea of the stay tape. I can see how that will be very helpful. Also, I learned many new ideas as to putting in the invisible zipper, which I favor. As a child, I learned to only use the lapped zipper technique and I did it differently. I really like learning these new techniques and found this class very ...
I really enjoyed watching this video. I have been sewing for years, and graduated from Penn Foster Online Dress Making and Design. I almost didn't bother with these free classes, but decided to watch while working in my sewing room. There were some really great tips and you can never learn too much! Great job! And I know I will come back to this and check some techniques when I need them! Thanks!
Very good class

This was a very good and informative class. I struggle with zippers and this class is going to be very helpful to me. There was a lot of great information for a free class!
What made the class unpleasant to me was the nasty comments from people who are so rigid that they think the way they do things are the only way and only their ways are correct. There is a BIG difference between constructive criticism and just plain nasty.
