Though overall I enjoyed the class, I felt the instructor was not a particularly great listener and often gave answers that were not germane to the questions asked. Things often felt chaotic, and because she did not lead the class in an orderly or assertive manner, it was difficult to know what was expected. Also, there were often unnecessary intrusions by the instructor's husband.

Sewing Made Easy I with instructor Rosy Espinoza was a great five week course! In the class we covered the basics slowly and thoroughly.

The teacher was nice but did not explain things very clearly. I was confused most of the time and it seemed my classmates were too.

My only complaint is that the class took place in an open space next to counseling offices. People would often walk thru speaking loudly or have lengthy conversations in the back of the room.

Instructor would ask us for homework that she didn't ask us to do. She would mix us up with her earlier class and think she showed us something when she had not. Didn't come close to finishing the project. There was one student out of the whole class that actually finished the project.
