Students Feedback

“I saw just 40 minutes of the video of the T-tote bag. It’s just remarkable! I am just so lucky to have found you! I am going to be an entrepreneur. You are my 1st teacher! ?

When I searched in Google using the keywords: ‘How to design a handbag’, your site was one of the first 3-5 sites. This is pretty hard to achieve! And I have not found any other site like yours.”

Luna, IT specialist

“I am very excited to be learning to make my own patterns and learn how to make the complicated ones. There is still a lot to be learned even though I went to school. They really only teach the basics.

J. Royal

“My one year time frame is coming close and I have not had the time to complete it.  But I LOVE LOVE LOVE this coarse and would love to purchase all three of the courses at once but have unlimited time to complete them.  I won’t bother much.  I am a senior citizen who is taking your course because I have always wanted to make evening bags….

C. Mistretta

“Learning a lot with your classes, so many little things that makes much better looking bags ?”
