Reviews: A Way We Sew recently taught a Zoom class for the annual American Sewing Guild (ASG) virtual convention. The class was on making shirt collars. Here are a few reviews:
"Really well done and so thorough. Wonderful teacher and I loved how she sort of previewed the steps before walking us through them. She paced things just right" - Liz, Chicago ASG neighborhood group
"As an ex-teacher (and ex-resident of Gig Harbor) and a person who took all 6 ASG classes...your class was the best. Very clear directions, minimal video issues, could see the details, detailed handouts. Thank you for the inspiring day." - Sue
"I appreciate your clear instructions and method. I was familiar with [some of your methods] but they had not worked for me. I can now see how they will work and give me a better point." - Ruby
