Pamela Howard's class is limited to 6 students- so, you will enjoy very personal instruction. She has many years experience tailoring fine garments for her own customers, as well as writing many articles for Threads magazine. She is very knowledgeable and shows you the best looking techniques, while demonstrating many quick methods, as well. She gives you choices to make, and you never feel like she has insisted on only her way.
She brings many beautifully tailored fashions, in a wide variety of fabrics-wool, silk, knits, brocades. sweater knits, linen, etc. You will be impressed with her vast knowledge, her gentle teaching style and her sense of humor.
If I haven't convinced you to sign up for her boot camp yet, please consider the beautiful setting in which the class is held. No freezing cold, high rise hotel for these classes. The classes are held in a tranquil, antique, restored plantation an hour south of Atlanta. You can back your car right up to the barn doors of a lovely reproduction barn with large tables, pressing stations, loads of mirrors, bathroom facilities, and kitchen upstairs. You won't have to lug your sewing machine but a few steps. you sew in this converted (but new) barn with the dobled doors open to breathtaking gardens created by the Oak Grove Plantation owners, inkeepers, gardeners and top knotch couple. They serve you delicious, made from scratch breakfasts in the original plantation house
All round, it was a delightful mini-vacation and sewing empowering five days. Don't miss this one .
This is NOT an online class, but I cannot removed that rolling banner

Thanks so much for your very helpful review. Nancy Erickson of the Fashion Sewing Group recommends this class in her most recent newsletter, and I'd love to take it. I understand the fee is $550 for the five day class, which is very reasonable.

Oops. I misread the information. The class runs from Thursday through Saturday, which is three days not five. It still sounds like a good deal.

The class begins on Wednesday night after a "meet & greet" catered dinner. You will complete a fillted muslin by Thursday noon and will be ready to use that muslin as the pattern. It was a wonderful and rewarding experience and I came home with a perfectly fitted, very professional looking jacket. I enjoyed all the ladies I met and sewed with. Pam will stay with you until about 2-3 on Sunday afternoon. Most of us left by noon because we were traveling anywhere from 1 - 12 hours to get home. Pam Howard is a very patient, kind, informative, and talented teacher. I left Sunday at noon, arrived home around 10 pm on Sunday night, and have already completed another NE jacket I had previously started but was stuck on the alterations on the shoulder area. I am so pleased with everything I learned and am "on fire" with the process of making jackets. You will do yourself a great favor if you can schedule this boot camp. It is really a mini vacation in which you get to sew. How great is that?

I met Pamela at an ASG conference one year--she's so delightful! I'd love to spend a few days learning from her. THanks for the review.

Hello Queendom, Sorry for delay in reply. Boot Camp took place at Oak Grove Plantation and is also where we stayed, either in upstairs of renovated barn, or cozy cottage down the driveway. It was quite delightful and the gardens were beautiful. Charge for stay at Bed and Breakfast was in addition to class fee. You wouldn't want to stay anywhere else and waste sewing time as you traveled there and back. We stayed up quite late sewing, Pamela stayed up with us to answer questions. See it Diane Tucker
