Our Customer Stories

My husband and I are taking our second set of classes with Cherice. My husband and I both agreed after our very first class that we learned more in one class than all the other classes we’ve taken. Cherice has a wealth of knowledge about sewing, but more importantly, she knows how to share her expertise with her students. Her classes are designed to help any level sewer gain skills as they progress through her classes I’ve taken classes before and really didn’t learn much because the classes were too large and the classes did not have levels like Cherice has at Making it sewing fun. If you are thinking about taking a sewing class don’t hesitate to take her classes you will not regret it.

I am so excited to finally find a good sewing class. I had been searching for an entire year to find a sewing class that would teach me the skills that I need in order to become a more professional and confident seamstress. I previously attended a different sewing class last spring in the Chicagoland area and I was so very disappointed because I spent a large sum of money and did not even complete or start one single project. I spent six whole weeks sewing on a piece of paper; cutting out strips of fabric and attempting to learn how to draft a skirt pattern with no clear instructions. I have been at Making it Sewfun for four weeks and I have already made a blue Jean maxi skirt and next week I will be starting sewing level two and will be learning how to assemble a skirt from a pattern and install a zipper. The teacher is very patient and passionate about the sewing class and teaches the students in a very detailed manner. This is a very positive and pleasant sewing environment for the students. Thanks for Making it Sew Fun!

"I came to Cherice with a little sewing experience and low confidence in my work. My experience in her classes has truly enhanced my sewing skills. My projects look just as good on the inside as they do on the outside now. Cherice's program is not just about sewing; it's about developing patience, problem-solving and project management. Sewing was just a hobby before Cherice and now it's an entrepreneurial opportunity!"

"Both of my kids love the classes, they are learning a useful and creative skill while also learning perseverance and experiencing the pride of creative and skillful production. In addition to her excellent sewing skills, the owner (Cherice) is an extraordinarily conscientious business owner. She is always reliable: classes start on time and stay on a regular schedule, billing is clear and easy, equipment and supplies are ready, etc. Cherice also communicates clearly and is very caring and kind with my kids. My kids receive not only excellent instruction but also are in the presence of an excellent and supportive role model. If Cherice has an opening, grab it!"

I’m super excited still about my sewing classes at Making it sew fun! What I Iove most is the smaller class size which allows more one on one instruction. Our instructor who has been in this field for many years has great experience and shows in her teachings. I’m looking forward to every level of completion. Zippers here I come!,,,
