    If anyone can produce quality instruction and production, it is Ann. Everything she does is quality and reflects her passion for sharing what she knows with others. She truly loves what she does, from beginning to end. 5 stars and well wishes.

    I have never sewed a day in my life, and after one lesson, I’m even more excited to learn. Ann is fabulously talented and an awesome teacher. If you want to learn to sew, no matter your level, let Ann teach you, you won’t regret it! Can’t wait for my next lesson!

    Learning a skill like sewing as an adult can be intimidating, I found Ann to be very patient and effective as an instructor. I enjoyed working with her at her studio which is a fun and comfortable setting to work in. I would definitely recommend her classes. I’m also looking forward to taking her quilting class. She’s super talented and fun, I had a great time.

    Ann made sewing fun. I was really intimidated and nervous to do this. She really helped me feel comfortable. She took the time to help me with some personal projects which required some extra work on her part including making a simple pattern from scratch. This class was really fun and I am looking forward to continuing to learn and improve with Ann’s help.

    I received a new sewing machine for my birthday from my husband and had no clue how to thread the needle, use the bobbin etc so this class really helped get me going. Ann was very sweet and helpful in helping me figure out the machine and begin developing skills. With the projects she would guide us then let is try to do it ourselves. I feel like I’ve learned a lot of great basic sewing skills to start doing different projects including a quilt. I want to do a quilt class or work on one at open sew so if anyone else wants to join me?! Thx Ann!

    My husband and I bought a sewing machine for Christmas, because we both wanted to learn how to sew. We thought it would be fun to take a sewing class together- we searched online and came across Ann’s Savvy Chix Adult 101 class and it couldn’t have been more perfect for us. We learned so much but at a pace that we were both comfortable with. Ann is very kind and always patient with explaining each step. She is hands on and helps you create fun pieces that make sewing fun and simple. Both of us were very pleased with what we learned at such an affordable price. I definitely recommend taking this class if you are interested in sewing!
