|Comments about the Couture Sewing
School . . .
"I want to thank you for a wonderful week of couture. I
have applied the knowledge already in the gown I am working on. Thank you so much for
sharing your knowledge with us."
"Your class offered me added knowledge, professional advice, and the
confidence to know I can command the price that my craft in dressmaking is worth. I got
exactly what I came for: friends, technique, knowledge, and credentials."
