Learned so much!

I bought this class years ago and was so intimidated to try it. It was slow at first, but I appreciated the information.

I finally launched into the class and was amazed at how many tips Meg gives. I took this to learn to sew with knits and that's exactly what I did. I know feel confident to sew other knit patterns and I know I will refer back this class over and over.

I actually took some private lessons with a local sewing instructor and did not learn any of the things ...

Don't Listen To Negative Reviews

I was hesitant to buy this class because of some negative reviews, but decided to go for it. It has been one of the most useful classes I have ever bought on Craftsy. It is an excellent value. I have sewn 3 of the patterns and have received numerous compliments, especially on the dress. I used to think I couldn't sew knits, but now I make knit garments almost exclusively, thanks to this class. I would recommend buying it just for the patterns if the instructor bothers you.

And then I become confused and overwhelmed.

Sewing With Knits: Five Wardrobe Essentials

Absolutely loved this class! She taught it well and made it very easy to understand, I hope she teaches more classes. I am going to definitely make some clothes after not wanting to after all these years!

A huge Surprise!

Even with the negative reviews I had read, I decided to buy this on the bases I was longing to sew with knits and didn't have a serger!
I am thrilled at how much I learnt, and am so happy with my shirt I made. I understand knits in a way I never did before. My mother who was a seamstress for years even freared knits.
I know a lot of people found the talking a bit annoying, I found it rather endearing, like I was a friend she was talking to.
Thank you
