I enjoyed this course - I have avoided sewing stretch fabric forever - but this class taught me a lot of little tips and tricks that make sewing stretch a lot less scary - from how to cut the pattern, steaming and overlocker work - Danielle taught with patience and encouragement.

I have a fully finished t-shirt. This course helped me to overcome my fear of sewing knits as I previously found them very tricky.
