I attended a three day retreat to learn how to make top variations with Judy Kessinger. The retreat was held at a beautiful conference center on the lake in Florida. Judy is one of the most inspiring instructors I have ever met. I took her top class and was very impressed. I was even more so at this retreat. Judy and her helpers had 20 ladies who ranged from beginner to advanced in her class. Judy and her staff managed to keep everyone happily moving along and learning. I went home with three nightshirts because I was so nervous about messing up nice material. Ha -- shouldn't have worried -- with the great instruction I got wonderful results and can't wait to try other variations. Those who were more advanced got double that done but everyone worked with Judy at their own speed. Judy had lots of clothes made from her patterns for you to try on to decide what you'd really enjoy making. I wish I could have met a teacher like this many years ago. Only bad thing is Judy will have you asking permission to take pictures of outfits worn by strangers so you can copy them (I'm not kidding, smile). She is very generous with her time and help. If you run into a problem after taking her class working on one of the variations, she emails you quickly with help or calls depending on what you need. I would highly recommend her classes, retreat and her complete system for making tops and pants. I would give this and my instructor the highest possible rating and that isn't really fair either -- she is even better. Judy puts the fun into sewing and makes you capable of creating what you like. Can't say enough about this. The food was great, the accommodations were great and the company was even better. Don't miss taking a class or retreat with Judy and from my experience I'd say sooner rather than later. Great class, beginner to advanced friendly.
