Thanks for another clear and precise sew-along! Knowing that I would be expertly guided step-by-step through the process, I felt comfortable attempting the collar stand and collar, which I had never tried to sew before. They turned out perfectly! I just love the fold-up cuffs and will try to use them for other designs as well. All-in-all this is a practical, useful and excellent course.

Thank you Glenda and team. I have learnt so much following along with this and the Go Anywhere shirt. The steps were easy to follow & could be rewound if I thought I missed something. My shirts look more professional with the tips and tricks that you presented. These sew alongs would be equally suited to a novice as to an experienced sewist. Again, thank you.
