TESTIMONIALS

What Our Online Students Say

“I agree! The letters of the alphabet can not explain how good a tutor she is. Trust me I had little knowledge of sewing and pattern making before I signed up for this class. But guess what? I’m now in a league of my own! Not near where I want to be yet but dare me to say that Tope’s tutelage is an excellent foundation. Her attention to the minutest of details is top notch! She carries an excellent spirit that rubs off on you by default. The banter? Out of this world. It was needed cos of the technicality of the course. But learning from martwayne. A walk in the park. Thank you Tope for being an amazing teacher (you’re in the right calling) and thank you for drowning my fears in pattern making and also thank you for bringing out the best in me”
