After the Covid-19 pandemic, we seem to be seeing more and more unruly behavior by people coming to Vancouver Sewing Classes (VSC), with negative attitudes and feelings of entitlement. Let’s be realistic here: most people come to VSC is to learn a practical life skill, either as a hobby or as a profession.  Our staff are here to help you achieve your goals; our mission is to help you become successful in your future endeavours.  Our motto has always been, “your success is our success”.  We are not like those fake schools that scam and steal people’s money.  As a matter of fact, we have given away over $850,000 in FREE BONUS GIFTS over the years, and we will continue to do so, to support our clients in achieving success in the fashion industry!  In fact, we are the ONLY organization in the world that is doing this!  We are very proud of this huge accomplishment!  Do you know ANY fashion sewing studio, college, university or academy doing this to help their students to succeed? NONE.  We are doing all this to help you build and perfect your technical skills, business acumen, fashion brand, portfolio, reputation, experience and confidence, as well as make money and profits.  Do you think your school or other sewing studio will bend their back to help you achieve your success?

There is an old saying, “What you put out in this world will always come back to you. But never how you predict”.  Please respect and love yourself more and hate yourself less.  The best policy is always to be honest and true to oneself.  We are here to assist and help you achieve your dreams; we are not here to judge or break you down mentally and emotionally like those typical, crazy, expensive, fake fashion schools.  This is why grading in schools is the worst way to learn any sewing or fashion design because it takes all of the fun, joy, and excitement out of it.  This is why VSC is NOT a school.  So, the next time you want to learn sewing, pattern drafting, grading, French draping, fashion illustration or fashion design, please leave any negative attitude outside the door because there is no place for it in our studio, and always remember that we are your friends not your enemies.  Life is truly short.  Be happy and grateful!
