“Just finished my first sewing class ever! In four short weeks, I hemmed a pair of dress pants, turned two tunics into shirts, and modified my existing stroller cover to fit a new stroller (saving me $100!)! Irene is a fantastic teacher! Looking forward to taking more classes!”

“I just completed fundamentals 2 over the weekend with Cassandra. I just wanted to shoot you a note to tell you how much I enjoyed the class. The projects are so cute and fun all of which I will be making for Christmas presents!
I look forward to taking the quilting class sometime next year in hopes that next Christmas I will be making quilts! Your classes have opened up a passion I did not even know existed!”

” I want you to know that I really appreciate how truly generous you and everyone at the Make Den are. You are all so generous not only by sharing your skills with such kindness and patience, but also generous with your time and resources. It is one of the things that really distinguishes the Make Den. I never cease to rave about you all!”

“Thank you so, so much for getting me the machine yesterday.  The masks I made are so cute and I absolutely adore my new little friend (Janome Sewist 625E).  It works like a breeze and I could start right away thanks to the classes I’ve taken with The Make Den!  You are the best.”

“I have taken 3 different classes at The Make Den and each one has become more challenging. I have had wonderful instructors Irene and Kat, bith have been very patient and accomodating with my projects.
I have only the highest praise for Irene and her team.
I can’t wait to begin my next class!”  ~Rebecca

“I want you to know that I learned a lot in your course and felt really inspired by your own creativity. The course made me more comfortable with my own machine at home, provided me with some superb sewing tips, and made it so that I will never look at Value Village in the same way again.”

“The repairs and alterations class is over, and i just wanna say what an amazingfantasticwicked class! I learned a ton and have worn everything i made. You and Theresa know your stuff, love what you do, and it it totally shows. Keep me posted on other goings on.”

“Thank you so much for teaching me sewing!  You are an awesome teacher and I learned lots of little tricks from you that I wouldn’t have learned anywhere else.  Most importantly, you taught me to be patient and that a good skirt requires lots of work but it’s worth it in the end.”

“I’ve definitely caught the sewing bug.  I wish there were more hours in the day…  I would just knit and sew all day/night long!  Thank you for introducing me to the world of sewing in such a charming way!”

“Thanks again for all you do to inspire creativity and expand horizons.”

“Dear Irene,

I want to thank you for all that you’ve done to help make my prom dress dreams come true.   When I first came to you with my crazy idea I was anxious/nervous if it could actually be done, but you helped me in believing that I can actually make this happen.  I am forever grateful for all the time you put into helping me create this amazing dress.  I felt beautiful at my prom and all I could think about that night was how much I appreciate everything.  The process was long but you were there to keep it real!   I can’t thank you enough!!”

“If you have ever wanted to learn sewing, I highly recommend learning at The Make Den! Irene is the best teacher! I knew within 5 minutes that she was going to be awesome. Cannot wait to wear my pencil skirt (just as soon as I finish it) and use my lifetime free Friday night access to the studio.  I can’t believe the Friday night free access, either. I didn’t even know that was going to be a bonus, and it’s a huge one. She taught us to use a serger, too! You get to make a skirt completely from scratch, including drafting your own custom fit pattern. And my invisible zipper installation is rock star quality.”

“Irene is FABULOUS– very very helpful, friendly and super knowledgable. After I finish my course I will be taking all future courses here.”

“I’ve been enjoying my beginners sewing lessons at The Make Den immensely! The small class sizes and knowledgeable experienced teachers have made this an amazing experience and I can’t wait to sign-up for intermediate lessons.”

“Great experience and very nice people!”

“Irene is awesome and inspired a new passion for sewing within me!”

“Friendly helpful service! Great sewing classes.”

“Keep Rock’n! Love the Intro to Sewing and plan to come back for more!”

“I enjoyed my 1st sewing experience very much and I would  recommend The Make Den to my other friends who are interested in learning how to sew.”

“Keep doing what you are doing! I love it there!”

“I appreciate your business’s customer service focus. It makes me think I will continue to go to the make den for more advanced programs.”

“Thank you so much for such a great experience”
