Introduction to Sewing Soft Furnishings

  • This is a home study program.  You will receive all of the listed lessons and so you can complete the class. No refunds provided.

  • I’ve been sewing for 15+ years and I’ve learned almost entirely from books, tutorials, patterns, and a couple pre-recorded classes.  It was so nice to be able to have a live, real-time class.   I’m looking to turn my hobby into a business.  Having the reinforcement that I’m doing things correctly or learning that there’s a much better, more effective (prettier, efficient, etc.) way to do something is helpful. Traveling to you would be a challenge (even without COVID) so I’m grateful to have the opportunity to take courses virtually!                                                     ~Whitney K.
