“Before Stitch Budapest, I never even knew how to operate a sewing machine, much less properly thread one. After only 3 classes, I already managed to make a simple drawstring bag and a tote bag. Soon I was already making things on my own, applying what she taught us in class! My friends and family think I am already awesome but I owe it all to Zsuzsi and Stitch Budapest 🙂
Zsuzsi’s classes are well structured, and she controls the pace very well so that no one is left behind. She also keeps classes small so that she can pay attention to each student.
I love the classes so much that I already signed up for my 3rd course. I highly recommend Stitch Budapest!”
