Frequently Asked Questions
Why is this course better than a sewing class?
Our videos are step-by-step and can be played or paused when needed. So your daughter can go at her own pace and watch them over and over. With a live sewing class all you get is the specified time in class (that you pay for by the hour). And if you have multiple daughters then you have to pay separately for each one. At the Katrina Marie Studio the cost for this in-person course is $499 per student, making our this online course a much more affordable option.
Do I need a sewing maching or any other tools?
You will need a sewing machine. It doesn't matter what model as long as it works. For sewing you will also need tools such as scissors, straight pins, a pin cushion, a seam ripper, a tape measure, a large safety pin, an iron and ironing board. For patterns and tracing you will need multiple pieces of large poster board, a ruler/yard stick, and a pen or sharpie marker. It's also a good idea to have a table and cutting mat set up.
How much do materials cost for this course?
The materials for these courses will range in cost depending on what you have on hand. If you have some of the basics already then you may be able to have your daughter pick up a some yardage of her favorite fabric for under $35. If you need to buy everything (from fabric, trims, elastic, stuffing, etc.) then the estimated cost will be $50 to $75.
When does the course start and finish?
These courses are setup to be a 6-weeks of lessons each with email reminders to keep you on track. You will gain immediate access to all the project videos though, so you can start whenever you want. You decide if you want to make all the projects in a weekend, over a holiday vacation, or just one a month. It's up to you and your daughter and when the time is right for your schedule!
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have lifetime access to this course. This is a fabulous deal that allows you to take this course whenever you want. Or use it with your older kids and then again with your younger kids when they are ready to sew. You will not get that with an in-person ($25 to $50 per hour) sewing class. So this makes this lifetime access course worth every dollar.
Do I get support with this course?
Yes! All our courses come with private facebook group access, so you can ask questions, share photos, and get feedback from your teacher Katrina Marie on each assignment. We will send you out an email with a link to "request to join" the group that goes with your course after you register. This is a super valuable bonus that we provide at no additional charge because we love seeing our students work, so it's included in the price of this course.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We know that you will not find any another sewing course that is as detailed or engaging for your daughter. We also take pride in the months that we put into every course we create. But, at the same time we would never want you to be unhappy! So, if you are unsatisfied with this course for any reason or decide that your daughter is not quite ready to learn how to sew, then please contact us WITHIN 7 DAYS and we'll give you a full refund.
