Judith R.Beginning Sewing Series
This series was really fabulous. I went from knowing virtually nothing about sewing, to having confidence to try a variety of projects. Each class is focused on one aspect of sewing which makes learning how to sew less intimidating. Tish is always prepared with materials and presentations for each class. And she knows what she's talking about! She has years of experience and had so many helpful tips that are really beneficial to a newbie. Take this series - you'll learn a ton!
Shannon L.Beginning Sewing Series
Great teacher! Really takes the time to break things down and make sure all is understood.
Cameron L.Beginning Sewing Series
Each class I've been to has been great! Learning the little things with direct instruction is invaluable. Definitely going to continue.
Katrina E.Beginning Sewing Series
Tish, my instructor, was enthusiastic, prepared and obviously loves her subject. I had a grand time getting over my unreasonable fear of sewing by machine! She's got a great knack for knowing how to put together a class presentation that flows well and makes perfect sense. A++ and highly recommended!
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!
