The video's explain everything and doesn't make it confusing, simple but with room to grow and change

Clear concise presentation

by Mary Cavanaugh
Glenda gave a clear, concise presentation that got me solid results on my very bodice pattern. There wasn't one place where I was confused or had to stop and ask questions. I thought this was a process that would take perhaps a week. Instead it took a few hours (and I'm slow!) My muslin was sewed up and I was amazed at the way it fit.

I ran across SFD while surfing YouTube for sewing terms I was not familiar with and I am so happy I did. After, watching the many videos on the YouTube Channel, I went to the website and ordered the Pant Kit with the necessary essentials. I just ordered the kit, so I have not worked with it yet, but happy I was able to view the How-To DVD before the kit arrives; now I am even more excited awaiting the arrival of my kit. Glenda is an awesome teacher. Everything is explained in detail, so no need for any follow-up questions. I have never run across any class that I have taken in person or online where I did not have questions. I first began sewing in High School, many, many years ago. I am now retired and decided to take up sewing again. Although, I am familiar with some of the sewing terms, I feel like a beginner, so this is perfect for me. I found a local sewing machine dealer in my area, who allowed me to trade in my old machine for an updated machine, so I am ready. Glenda, thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. xoxo
