Attended: Learn to Sew Like a Pro


The instructor (Ms. Endres) is very knowledgeable and very approachable. I enjoyed the class very much, and money are well-spent. As a beginner, I learned a lot about sewing from the course. During the class, you have good amount of opportunities to have hand-on experience on the machine. I feel very confident to use the sewing machine now. I wouldn't hesitate to attend another class from the same instructor.

Live Fashion Drawing and Moodboard Creation

If you follow the Fashion Illustrator Steven Broadway then you know that he offers these live models practice sessions for illustrators to strengthen their skills. These sessions accommodate all levels as he offers drawing introductions for newbies and tips for veteran artist. Broadway usually has 2 - 3 live models with an array of fashion clothing to help ignite your illustrating imagination. 6 hours does sound like a long time but you'd be surprise how the time moves along as you continue to draw. I have not attended a session that actually goes over the mood boards. I have the supplies just incase. But I am content with just drawing. If you have taken Professor Broadway's Fashion and Accessory Illustration courses this live model practice is what you need for your next step development. The attendees are an amazing group of people and you will enjoy yourself.

It was great class! One of the best I did so far at NYC! Steve is excellent teacher, great advisor and simply very nice engaging person. I enjoyed every minute of the class and I would recommend to everybody to take this course. Moreover, Steve is perfect example for other profs how to organize the classes and make it interesting for everybody.

Marian Grealish’s experience and knowledge is phenomenal. There are few people who know as much as her about machine knitting. Classes at places other than FIT for non-matriculating students wont come close to what you’ll pick up in the beginners and level two combined. Marian is sweet and wants to teach you what she knows. She’s been teaching it for 25 years and doing it for 40. A great opportunity.
