Fantastic techniques

Learned a lot

Pam is a wonderful instructor and easy to listen to as she, not only teaches you how to put a Jacket together, but she also shares her wealth of experience in things to watch out for and how to fix them.

Jacket Review

Excellent teacher! I am an experienced sewer with jackets under my belt. I have already learned techniques I have not seen before.

Getting So Much From the Class!

Wonderful. Learning new things to do all the time. Her preciseness with extra markings so you can ensure ease of sewing and a more perfect garment is great. Very close attention to detail. The students projects really impressed me. And there was good variety, but all really professional looking. That she could teach like that made me take the class.
