So far I have taken two classes at the sewing studio - the Tiered Skirt Class and The Infiniti Dress class.
I sewed for many years but have been away from it for about a decade - I needed some classes to set me back on track and bolster my confidence.
Well, the Sewing Studio was the perfect place. My first class was taught by Rosie - an accomplished fashion forward designer - who knows her stuff. She is also an excellent instructor, very clear. Some of my classmates were very new to sewing and she skillfully guided them through our project.
My skirt turned out great. My goal was learning how to perfect my gathering technique (nothing says "home sewing" then poorly made gathers) - mine turned out perfect thanks to Rosie.
Then I took the Infiniti dress class with Cynthia. Cynthia is a great sewing instructor. Very clear, patient, precise.
As another reviewer noted - Cynthia's love of sewing is contagious.
Her experience as a sewing instructor shines through.
She reminded me how much I always have loved to sew.
I have been sewing every spare minute since I took the class.
As for the dress - we finished it in 3 hours. The total cost of the dress was under $15 and it looks like you paid hundreds of dollars for it in Beverly Hills.
I look forward to taking more classes and getting my skills as sharp as they were before my work schedule took away all my time to sew.

Hi qz, It is on Fair Oaks - just off Green Street- right in the heart of Old Town, Pasadena. There is parking close by The website for the studio is 4theloveofsewing.com There is never more then 3 people in a class at a time - so you get lots of attention and questions are answered quickly and thoroughly.
