Thanks for visiting On the Cutting Floor today. This is my review for the “Sew Better, Sew Faster: Advanced Industry Techniques” a class produced by Craftsy, featuring Janet Prey, founder of President of Janet & Company, Inc. (Islander Sewing Systems)
If this is your first time in our blog, remember to check our FREE SEWING PATTERNS page.
On that page you will find our collection of free sewing patterns for women, kids and men.
We also have an ETSY STORE, where you will find unique and modern sewing pattern for women.
Janet Prey has already published three classes on Craftsy, specializing on Garment Industry Techniques.
Some of her more valuable tips:
INTERFACING: ON THE FACING OR THE MAIN PIECE?
THE BURRITO TECHNIQUE
When she was explaining the technique, and I was having that ”revelation” moment…I wanted to run to the sewing machine and rip of the Sofia skirt facing and make it again with THAT technique.
This part, for me, pays off the price of the class. It will make my work so much faster! and the finished garment looks very professional.
WHY YOU NEED TO TRIM YOUR CORNERS
SUSHI AND SEWING ARE GREAT COMPANIONS
FORGET WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT FRENCH SEAMS
WELT BUTTONS CAN BE SO EASY!
I have learned more from her classes that I had in the one-on-one sewing lessons that I used to have (I wish I knew this before spending $500!)
Her classes make me always feel like I am sewing with my aunt, in a comfy sewing room.
She has this supportive, yet very clear point with the techniques shown. Her classes feel very personal and I love that; She sews and explains everything with such a confidence, that I truly trust what she is doing.
This is the list of lessons including in this class:
