rated 5 stars


Meg is a wonderful teacher. I have been sewing for over fifty years but have always been afraid of knits. Meg gives detailed instructions and great tips. As a teacher, I value her excellent teaching methods. I have completed my first t shirt and it was a success. I'm off to my next project. Thank you, Meg!

Love this class!!!

I am a knitwear pattern designer and love all things handmade! I used to sew a lot, but hadn't for the last 15 years because I love to wear t-shirts and knit-jersey type dresses and skirts. I never had the bravery to sew knits. I just sewed regular fabrics. This class gave me the bravery and skills needed to sew knitted stretch fabrics. Thank you so much for offering this class! :-)

Not Sure Why Others Complain

This class has tons of info. It may be better suited for beginners, like me. I learned a lot. I went through the entire class many months ago and have made all the clothes. I appreciated all the info she shares, I don't mind the "ums" and it was a good start for me to learn to sew clothes. You could just skip over her intro, if it doesn't interest you.

Good Class

To be honest I need a little hand holding while sewing. For instance, I'm uncomfortable with the pdf patterns in general and Meg touched on that. I'm a beginner and self taught (thanks to Craftsy) and I can't wait to start one of her projects. I'm learning a lot and it's nice to know there are some earth mothers out there in the world. I hope to see Meg in more classes on Craftsy and I'm sure she will teach like no ones business!

Happy with results!

I've tried sewing with knits in the past and been extremely frustrated by poor results. But after following Meg's instructions, full of helpful tips, techniques, and proper tools, I felt so much more prepared and was able to successfully sew together the scoop neck tee. Her calm demeanor helped alleviate my anxiety and apprehension about trying knits again. She taught me to be much more Zen about it, so even if there are hiccups, I'll know it'll all be OK :)
