STUDENTS COMMENTS:

 

Louise Schubert -DFW Chapter American Sewing Guild (Dallas) says: " Thank you
again for a wonderful experience in learning to use the Lutterloh system. I
am just amazed at how easy this method is to use. Needless to say, without
Sonja's expertise and ability to teach, the system would not be nearly so
easy to use. I know that all our ladies had a wonderful time of learning.
You guys are the BEST!"


Juliana Chu from Sydney says: " I would like to thank you very much for a
most enjoyable two day workshop at the Lane Cove Bowling Club this weekend.
I really enjoyed it and had a great time
"

Lian Lim from New South Wales says: " I would like to thank you both for a
wonderful weekend of learning the Lutterloh pattern making - I've learnt
something the easy way and very interesting. The e-book is so helpful as a
reference after the class and I'll certainly be sewing something from
what's learnt.
"

Diane Sommer from Sydney says: " Thanks again for a great day - it really is
a wonderful system. I'm just sorry it took me so long to find it!!
