Indie Designer Supplies - Bring all the supplies needed to make your projects. If you need help with this, reach out  before the class. 

"I enjoyed the laid back nature of activities, location was beautiful, I liked that you had the different types of fabric. That Megan and Lauren (instructors) were available for questions / support was of the greatest value to me. I think encouraging participants to challenge themselves with skills they don't know is ideal. I certainly was a bit nervous about embarking on pants on my own and know I would have gotten frustrated had I not had the support of the instructors there."

"Both instructors were very helpful & really nice people!!  I just wish I got further along w one of my projects (no ones fault but my own) wish I was more motivated to get help on certain things. So sweet & thoughtful of Megan to give necklaces & cards. I loved it & I'm so glad that I went!!!"

"Amazing location and it definitely fostered a nice sense of community and relaxation."

"Just finished a fun/productive sewing class in the Catskills. Megan was so patient and helpful. I finished several projects (bags, dress, fixed shirt, and cut out a tunic). The accommodations were great, very comfortable. I'm planning on returning next year.   P.S. loved the butternut squash pizza."
