Succinct, Masterful Instruction Easily Transforms Your Sewing Level

Suzy is so gifted as an instructor. I was initially intimidated to put this class in my shopping cart and no one should be! Suzy beautifully takes you step by step and clearly demonstrates technique and results you can expect.

Thank you Craftsy for bringing Suzy to me!
