I can't put five stars? Wow, this class was phenomenal! Peggy is a superlative teacher; patient, articulate, and willing to show you the same thing over and over again.
Her fitting techniques result in a beautiful and superior fit. I've been sewing for over 40 years and I learned simple and straightforward techniques that I hadn't seen in books or even college pattern classes.
The format is a four day intensive and informal sew-a-thon. Despite the online class description of working on two garments, the reality is that you can make as many garments or get as many fittings as you want. One of us would get fitted and the others could watch and ask questions or keep sewing. We wound up all becoming friends. Peggy is very flexible and class hours were pretty much our decision.
I started out with pants and jacket muslins. and wound up with several blouse muslins, another pant pattern, a new and easy fly front construction method and a great welt pocket procedure. Because I was a similar size with another woman in the class, I was able to trade muslins/patterns.
Peggy wore her fabulous wardrobe that included her gorgeous jackets and fantastic fitting pants and we were able to see her construction methods and fabric choices.
Finally the class was held at Denver Fabrics. Very convenient when you realize you've forgotten your thread or a zipper. A friend and I flew in from San Diego. The only downside was lugging our sewing machines as carry-on. I purchased a great little traveling case from Tutto ( http://tutto.com ) made specifically for sewing machines. Despite the hassle of the luggage this class was well worth it.
