Step by step process. Listening skills of the instructor and her ability to give focused attention to each participant.
The pattern should clearly state the sizing is based on creatively having a kimono which does not meet in the front of the body but half way the vertical bust area. Multiple individuals had to upscale their pattern which impacted their ability to finish the garment in the allocated time.

I loved the project we were making and the fact they sent us the material ahead of time. The instructor was great also, it was nice that she had each of us introduce ourselves. Dang! I forgot the name already (Katresa?) was very good at instructing and then being patient, helping us through step by step when some of us hit what we considered a hard spot! Loved it! And they scheduled enough time for some of us to complete the project.
It would have been nice to be able to pick the fabric or at least the color scheme.

(1) The instructing style of Ms. Tisha Thorne; (2) the camaraderie of the group; (3) the knowledge, skills, tools, ideas, innovations, workarounds suggested by members of the group, instructors, and co-sewists alike. It is truely a sewing community where the members share. This is my new "Happy Place"!
Eliminating COVID so we can congregate together.

Clear instruction and patience
I had the understanding that the class would be on Thursday. Therefore I missed half the class. But I am grateful that they had it. I cannot watch the replay because I did not purchase the ability to do so.

I started the bag at the conference on Sat. I got lost during the process because of a machine malfunction. I was able to complete it on Tues.
About Sew Creative Lounge - DC
Cecily Habimana and Tisha Thorne met by chance in the hallway of a new building they both moved into back in 2006. They soon realized that they both had a passion for sewing.
The pair noticed that there really weren’t many places where people could take sewing classes, even though there was clearly a demand for it. So, they decided to fill that void and launch Sip and Sew DC, a three-hour workshop that teaches participants how to sew and complete a project such as a clutch, pants or skirt.
The response was overwhelming with many of the classes selling out from 2014-2016. Hosting pop-up classes was a lot of work and Cecily and Tisha’s husbands eventually urged the pair to find their own space. It was from their recommendation that pushed them to open Sew Creative Lounge in Mt. Rainier, MD.
Today Sew Creative Lounge teaches children and adult sewing classes and hosts summer camp at their home studio and satellite studio in Chicago. They also partner with various elementary schools throughout the DC metropolitan area including Yu Ying Public Charter School, Creative Minds Public Charter School, Center City Public Charter School and the Burke School. In response to the pandemic, Cecily and Tisha opened up an online store and began designing their own collection of fabrics. They excited about their work and are always eager to work with their students.
