Really enjoyed this class on Plus size fitting.

Thanks Barbara, i really enjoyed the classes. I have watched each and every one in turn, and am eagerly awaiting the pattern in the mail. There is a lot of useful information. It's great knowing i can come back and watch as many times as i like. I also enjoyed your great sense of humour and direct and down to earth approach. Will do another re-run when the pattern arrives. Thanks so much and best regards.

A must for any seamstress or home sewer!

First, in a time when many are so concerned about how they look and perform in online videos it is so refreshing to listen and learn from Barbara. She is not into reinventing the wheel, but rather immerses her students in the information she has to share and exceptionally easy to understand, completely descriptive so that anyone sewer or not can understand the concepts she is teaching and leaves nothing to chance but covers all the bases with her to the point descriptions. Plus size or not ...
