"It was perfect for me as a someone who never used a sewing machine!"

Dorit C.

"Great instructor! She was very knowledgeable and helpful! I like how the class was small, less than 10 people so she was able to help us one-on-one. Definitely recommend taking this class if you want to learn to sew!"

Cristin B.

"Great class!!!  I am sooo happy to have started my journey through sewing with M Avery Designs Sewing Studio. Megan was an excellent instructor. I definitely recommend."

Marilyn B.

"Megan is a super friendly instructor who explains things very clearly and in detail. She is extremely personably and welcoming. The class was informative and covered everything oh need to know about the basics of a sewing machine. We even made our own little pin cushion in the first day. It was a nice intimate group of 6 which ensured all our needs were met and questions answered. Awesome!!!"

Dani C.

"It was a surprisingly enjoyable experience. My daughter and I went on a Monday and learn a lot in a short period of time. Made some cute pin cushions in the end."
