Victoria M.Beginning Sewing Series Tuesday Edition
I'm currently taking the Beginning sewing series and i couldn't be happier! I'm learning skills that are beneficial to future solo projects. I love that Tish teaches actual skills instead of just throwing stuff at you with no background or other information. But this class is different and I'm so glad I found it. Can't wait for the next series.
With over 30 years sewing experience and many many sewing "experiments" gone good and bad, it was time to share some of these findings with others who enjoy sewing and making garments and home decor items. We truly believe anyone that wants to learn to sew will be able to make quality items with the proper skills offered to them...We don't just teach sewing, we build confidence and skills at HISS!
