So I bought a sewing machine as an impulse buy before Xmas and immediately thought of Bev and The House of Sew. I signed up for sewing 101, a two day beginning course, what a great time!! Beverly is amazing, she has years of experience and she knows what she's doing. She was very attentive in class and very encouraging with her students. She made us feel extremely confident and capable. I'm excited to attend her next workshop dressmaking 101!
"I absolutely loved your sewing class! You are an excellent teacher and I will definitely take any other classes offered by House of Sew!"
"For years I've dreamed of starting a clothing line but I wanted to do more than screen print some tees. Being married and a father of three, school was not an option so when I came across The House of Sew I was excited to work with Bev and learn the basics of sewing. Right away any nervousness I had with operating a sewing machine was alleviated with Bev as her instruction and patience with me was A1. I've gone from not having a clue to having the confidence and ability to create my own pieces. Taking classes with House of Sew was the best decision I made to get me closer to making my clothing line a reality and I will continue to take more classes and learn as much as I can."
"I recently completed the Sewing 101 Workshop and was extremely impressed with the expertise and quality of the course. I haven't touched a sewing machine in over 15 years and House of Sew took me back to the basics, to feel confident using the machine. I'm excited to continue learning and will definitely be back for my second class!"
