Wait for it...

To address some of the other comments made, yes - there are some very basic alterations in these videos. There are some, however that are not as basic. These lessons have been wonderful - Angela is a talented seamstress and a fabulous teacher.
I have been sewing for almost 30 years and still found this class useful. I now feel more confident in buying clothes that may not have the best fit knowing I can preform the alterations myself. The waistband alterations on jeans was a revelation for ...

Learned Much More Than Just Alterations

I have been sewing on and off since I was a kid, only venturing into garments in the last few years. I am no beginner, but I'm no expert either. I highly enjoyed this class. I enrolled just thinking I could learn the basics and honestly, it was worth the money just for the wonderful extra tips and tricks the teacher gives.

Angela is SUCH a great teacher!

I have been sewing for years and can usually figure out how to do basic alterations..but she has such great tips and ways to make it easier. There are lots of great samples, demos and careful explanations. She takes the time to make sure the camera catches all the detail so we can see exactly what she is doing and what it looks like when she finishes. I hope she does an advanced alterations class as well. I will take any class she teaches!
