Janet dryden reviewed: Intro to Pattern cutting - Part 2 - Bodice Drafting

"This was a Very well presented course with ample attention and explanations from Craig. Everyone’s needs appeared to be anticipated and addressed quickly so no one was left in limbo. The room was equipped with everything needed and all materials ready to use. I definitely intend to book more workshops at the Fashion Box"

Alex reviewed: Sew a waterfall collar coat!

"Fantastic course! My sewing machine skills are fairly basic and I was able to make a lovely stylish coat during this workshop. My friends can't believe I made it! Craig is an excellent instructor and really knows his stuff. He breaks things down into small steps and takes you through each one, demonstrating on a machine where needed. He is very patient and despite there being a lot to get through in four hours, I never felt rushed. The workshop also helped me to understand how to sew sleeves and pockets. I would definitely recommend this waterfall coat workshop and look forward to trying out another one of Craig's sewing workshops."
