    Kim helped me sew a skirt for my daughter. She was very knowledgeable, very nice and took the time to find my building and neighborhood. Kim loves sewing and all textile work, and shares her knowledge and enthusiasm generously.

    Kim did a fantastic job teaching my daughter to sew. She saw it through beginning to end. I am extremely pleased with her service. Thank you.

    Kim is a great teacher.Her patient and easy to understand style is only complemented by her extensive knowledge.Even though I have been crocheting for decades,she added,in just our first lesson,things I have never done before.I am looking forward to our future lessons with so much enthusiasm.Have not yet seen anything in her teaching style that needs improvement.I think she has the confidence and professionalism to do all that she aspires to.Absolutely impressed!
