Under Susan’s expert tutelage, you’ll make samples and learn different methods. You’ll learn two hand-picked zipper treatments. You’ll master a number of the finishing details that go into couture garments. This is an opportunity to learn with one of the acknowledged experts in couture sewing techniques in a friendly, supportive environment!
