Shannon Gifford's lessons for installing a zipper include tips that you will not find on the pattern or zipper package. The end result was a smooth, sleek-looking zipper. I am very pleased with her descriptions, photos and bonus videos, which worked together to make it simple.
Shannon's classes are informative, exciting, fun, and well worth every penny and more! Her classes are as good as any three credit college course I have ever taken, and far more hands on - it seems like she is there online 24-7 almost, with help, encouragement and constructive critique. Having taken five classes from Shannon, I recommend any class she teaches.
I have had the good fortune to take a number of classes that Shannon teaches for PatternReview.com. Although I've been sewing for many years, I never fail to learn something useful and practical from Shannon's classes. She is a knowledgeable, interesting and interested teacher whose patience and kindness shine through her online relationship with her students.
Shannon is an incredibly brilliant and gifted instructor. She puts much detail into her thorough, comprehensive lessons and is always available to help with any questions or concerns during the duration and even after her classes are finished. Her classes were so enjoyable that I've taken at least two of them twice, learning so much each time I've enrolled in them. It is because of Shannon that my knowledge of fitting and pattern alterations has vastly improved, and consequently, I rarely make wadders anymore due to poor-fitting garments. Shannon is AWESOME! She's the Queen of Fit!!
