    The Make Your Own Sweatshirt class with Anna Hovet was great! So much fun. It was totally hands on. I felt like I learned alot. Anna explained everything very well, as did her assistant, Angela. They helped where needed, but encouraged you to "get your hands dirty" as well. I love my sweatshirt. I highly recommend this class.

    If you want to spend $100 to "chill" while someone makes you a sweatshirt, then this is your class. If you want a hands-on experience to actually learn and sew/make it yourself, then best to look elsewhere.

    This is only a hands-on class if you are a friend of the instructor or a partial hands-on class if you are the one student that the assistant is focused on. If you are neither, then you mainly get to pick the fabric color, trace a pattern, and put in pins - all skills I had before this "class". Did not like how Anna decided to bunch up the trim/ribbing on my sweatshirt and told her so but she already sewed up the body and the trim before I even saw it and she had no intention of changing it to what I wanted. There is only one sewing machine for students so be prepared to spend time waiting or accept that you could be denied sewing time altogether. But it seems like her friend could take as much time as he wanted (including staying after the scheduled class time) to cut, pin, sew, and iron his shirt on his own. When this was addressed, Anna's responses ranged from "didn't know you wanted to make it", "thought you just wanted to chill", "this is only a 3 hour class", "he is my friend and it is okay if he stays later to do it himself", "we have private classes if you want to learn", "no one leaves being able to make a sweatshirt on their own" and "if you are not happy, you can speak to Dabble".
