This was an informal 4-day class with Kenneth King and susan Khalje, where the students (limited to 15, but 14 showed up) worked on whatever they wanted. It was held in a sewing studio in the middle of the NYC garment district, which was very convenient, but students came from all over the US. It was crowded and the sewing machines weren't the best, so there wasn't a real chance to do much formal sewing, but the instruction was so good. The class tended to divide up, with some working on laces focusing on Susan, and several of us working with fitting pants with Kenneth King, but we all got a chance to share. It wouldn't be a good class for beginners, or for people needing structure, but for inspiration and detail (and a pair of pants that actually fit!) it was great. They are hoping to do it again in the Spring, and I would certainly take it again.

Nancy, I got an email announcing it, and future classes will be listed on Susan Kalje's website (linked in the review) or Kenneth King's I'm sure if you emailed either of them, they would let you know when the Spring one will be scheduled.. Mary
