“Extremely knowledgeable, passionate, & helpful instructor. Lara’s the best. I felt really comfortable asking for help. She is positive and encouraging.” – M. M.
“Really enjoyed my mask making class because with guidance to get my machine out and prepare my fabrics that I already owned it made me sit and stitch a home done mask. Now that opens my world to create them for family and donation purposes.
We laughed a little (I almost cried because my machine disfunctioned and thought oh NO but Lara kindly said “we can trouble shoot it” and in no time, on with the class.” – M. K. H.
