“This sewing program is a treasure trove of information for anyone who wants to start teaching children to sew. I love this program! Very thorough. Very detailed. Very clearly written. Thrilled that someone did the hard work of figuring out what works and what doesn’t so that I don’t have waste valuable time with trial and error. Well worth the money you will spend!”
