Instructor not very motivated to teach. Nice enough, but impatient. Didn’t know my BROTHER machine; therefore wasn’t able to fully help me. Not sure if I should blame instructor or owner. She also answered some questions wrong. Once we ended the awkward online session, I googled how to set up/ thread BROTHER sewing machine and learned more in an 8 min video than in my PAID hourly session.
