I always look forward to my lessons with Lorraine as learning to sew was always on the bucket list but I could never find the time. Lorraine would always try to accommodate the lessons to my hectic schedule. She has great knowledge of sewing from pattern reading, MAKING, choosing and cutting fabric, darting, hemming, proper fitting using one's own body form for exact fit, proper use of the sewing machine and serger. She also instructs proper cleaning and maintenance for all equipment. She boosts your confidence and helps you overcome all sewing challenges. My sewing lessons from Lorraine at My Sewing Room has even given me the gift to sew making useful crafts for others as I now make microwave heat pads for my patients with muscle and osteo issues. This venture was a gift from my husband for my 50th birthday and the best gift ever.
Very friendly and prompt at a very reasonable price. She will make alterations without affecting the design.
I provided Mattie with fabric and pillows and asked her to make covers. Price was reasonable. She did a wonderful job and even included zippers which were never discussed. Workmanship was perfect. Will definitely recommend Mattie's Custom Creation.
Remarkable patience and expertise with teaching. I learn so much in the time with her and get creative shortcuts as well as professional techniques and the one-on-one cannot be found anywhere else for the price and value.
After receiving such wonderful service from Lorraine on the alteration of a bridesmaid dress, I returned to her for some alterations on a full-length gown. I was in a time crunch, and fortunately Lorraine was able to beautifully hem my dress in one night. It looks perfect!
REMARKABLE QUALITY !! Lorraine is a joy to work with ! She goes the extra mile, and pays special attention to detail ! My red gown was meticulously hemmed and presented ahead of schedule, pressed - and my custom decor turned out fabulous ! Everything from clothing to home decor, Lorraine can handle it !!HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!
Lorraine was wonderful! She returned my initial phone call within two hours of inquiring about her business and scheduled my first fitting within days of original contact. Lorraine was professional, timely, and affordable. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my clothing with her and trusted her to make the alterations. She listened to my requests (in terms of comfort and fitting) and made appropriate suggestions and solutions. She did a wonderful job! I will definitely be a returning customer.
She was a pleasure to work with. She hemmed my daughters prom dress perfectly. She is thorough and does painstaking work. Her motto is nothing less then perfection.
I contacted her to learn how to sow a zipper and saw that from first class there's so much more to learn. Weeks of lessons I sowed pajamas and a work blouse, both with advanced learning techniques: Channel binding, bias binding, gathering, setting sleeves, etc. I appreciate what i learned and carry it into all types of garments.
Lorraine is a great teacher! I am very new to sewing as it was always something I wanted to learn. She advised me on the purchase of my first machine and we moved on from there! Lorraine taught me from reading the pattern, to cutting it out, to sewing the pieces together and helped me complete my first ever toddler outfit! It's so adorable! She is always patient and answers all my questions. I highly recommend her as a sewing instructor.
