"Just a note to let you know that my daughters, Audrey & Claire, loved their sewing session last Tuesday. They are already asking for a sewing machine and want to attend future camps. I've signed up for future updates so will look out for future holiday camps as well as summer camp." Marybeth, Hoboken NJ 


"Also just wanted to tell you that my daughter Avery LOVES your class.  She is learning so much and makes the neatest projects.  I am so impressed with all that you do and am so happy that she is doing this. " - Sarah - Hoboken NJ


"I can’t tell you how exciting an opportunity I think this is for the kids. Thank you for starting this business. I never learned how to sew. No one taught me. Anna is LOVING sewing and a number of times over the summer got the bug to create, asked me to take her to buy supplies, and started making something with her machine (a christmas gift last christmas). What a great skill to have and some of the stuff she is making is so creative! She sewed little heart pillows for her whole class last valentines day. I mean, how cute is that?" Katie - Jersey City, NJ
