  1. Hello Kim,
    I am a beginner who has never sewn before & would like to learn.
    I am currently looking at a 2 day intense class at:
    And I’m wondering if you can do something similar? (And what would the costs be?)
    Also- I do not have a sewing machine as still need to do more research & get advice on the best one to buy for a beginner.
    Ultimately I would like to make items for my 4 month old daughter & things such as kaftans etc for myself.
    Thank you so much for your time & looking forward to hearing from you!
