My experience at Sew-It-All with Alicia has been a complete and unconditional success. Alicia is 100% helpful, encouraging, and you will always finish your project with her expert help. She has taught for many years and will pass on her secrets to her students to help them get your project completed.
I have completed many projects with her help and will be back to take more classes in her lovely studio.
I smile each morning when I look at my husband wearing one of the night shirts I made for him at Sew-It-All! He’s a man who has everything, so trying to create a special gift was a challenge. Sewing the night shirts was NOT a challenge as Alicia was so helpful for this “many moons ago” seamstress. Thanks Alicia for bringing a smile to my face each day!
Alicia is a caring and careful teacher who cares about the progress of her students and the outcome of the project they have chosen. She pays attention to what you are doing, and never leaves you on your own for long especially if she thinks you might need help. I have taken a number of classes both at the studio and in her San Francisco City College Adult Education classes and have never been let down.
As a complete sewing novice I don’t know where I got the idea that my bird mobile project would be “sew easy”. Enter Alicia’s open-lab, thank goodness. Never touched a machine in my life and voila…Alicia helped me through each step and I’m completely thrilled with the way everything turned out! Alicia is patient and easy-going, and helps make sewing fun by ensuring you emerge from class with a successful project. It’s also great fun to meet fellow seamstresses who provide encouragement and from whom one can glean ideas for new projects. I highly recommend Alicia’s classes and can’t wait to sign up for another session!
I took classes w/ Alicia a loooong time ago at Petaluma’s Adult Ed and the old Kennilworth! I am so proud of you! You have done exactly what you hoped and dreamed! I could only imagine having your knowledge and skill. You are an amazing teacher!! You make sewing look soo easy, and what’s great is if you mess up, Alicia always has some workaround…no sweat! Right? I learned so much from you and still love sewing. I hope to take some of your specialty classes soon.
I had been really turned off of sewing by a mean sewing teacher in junior high school. Almost 30 years later I took a class from Alicia and had a wonderful time. Alicia is extremely patient and knowledgeable. She made it so enjoyable that I loved going to my class and working on my project. Now with a toddler at home, it is difficult for me to do regular classes. I’m excited about some of the one-session Saturday classes that she is now offering. You won’t be disappointed in a class with Alicia!
