This class showed us how to put in an invisible zipper, a placket zipper and a separating zipper. The teacher was incredibly knowledgeable and made a point to not move on until everyone had gotten a chance to sew in their zipper. We could bring our own machine or use Haberman's. The class was a 3 hour class and in that time we only were able to do the invisible zipper and the placket zipper. I wish it had been a longer class. I learned how to make my invisible zippers truly invisible and can't wait to take out the zipper of the last thing I worked on and re-input it using the techniques I learned. I'm so lucky to live close enough to Haberman Fabrics to take classes!

Wonder if they teach this at the Sewing and Quilting Expos?

Lucy - I know Haberman's has a booth at the Sewing Expo in Novi, Michigan in September but I don't know if they offer any of their classes at the Expo because I've never attended it. I will try to go this year! If you are coming to Michigan you may be able to ask them via their website if they are offering any classes there.

Thanks for taking the time to review your class. I think that you have a valid point. When teachers plan their class they should take more care to time each section accordingly. If they are inexperienced they could recruit some friends and have a "rehearsal" class with them. They need to allow for comments and questions, hiccups with machines and redos with material that needs to be ripped out for a restart. If you get to the end of your class and you have not covered all the material listed in the syllabus then shame on the teacher. Each class should come with a anonymous comment and rating sheet that attendees can fill out and leave behind. These sheets should be read and noted by both the teacher and the management so that the class can be adjusted before the next go-around.

I actually didn't mind that we didn't get to the last zipper type. I wouldn't have wanted to spend any less time on the other two. I just enjoyed the class so much that it could have been longer. The time flew!
