RETIRED HIGH SCHOOL HOME ECONOMICS TEACHER

“Having taught sewing at the high school level for a better part of my life, I was looking for some advanced sewing/drafting classes in Vancouver. Anything to further my skills in this passion of mine. This meant finding someone with SERIOUS skills. After hunting through various sites, I discovered there were plenty of fun sewing classes that made simple projects such as cushions, tote bags, and aprons but only one that offered advanced workshops like corsets, pattern drafting and French draping. It was Christ Falcon of Vancouver Sewing Classes. I selected 2 sessions – one on Draping with Knits and the other one on pattern drafting from measurements. Chris was flexible with his hours so I was able to fit it into my working schedule. To say that I learned a lot is an understatement. I came out of the sessions, inspired and rekindled. Chris has an astounding (I repeat, astounding!) knowledge base and experience to draw from and he explains everything clearly and checks to make sure you are on the same page. Christ was patient, encouraging, and hilariously fun to be with! I feel like I have found a hidden treasure that I must share with everyone. We are indeed fortunate to have such a rare talent right here in Vancouver!”
