1  Wisconsin / Wisconsin: Southeast / Re: Sewing classes from the Fashion Ninja- Milwaukee on: October 02, 2010 05:06:41 PM
I'm sorry but I went to the advanced all day class with the Fashion Ninja in Milwaukee and spent more than $400 to do an "intensive" fashion draping class that I learnt NOTHING in! She smoked at the sewing table and had hardly prepared anything to go over with the 6 or so of us in her class. We were supposed to end up with a dress we made ourselves by the end of the day and not one of us even got as far as sewing half a bodice. Most of the girls didn't even get to cut enough pieces for a whole dress let alone put two pieces of fabric together. I took basic sewing in high school (no design or pattern making) and I didn't learn one thing in "The Fashion Ninja's" class that I couldn't have read in five minutes from a basic sewing book. I can't believe she was so unprepared. I think we must have been one of her first all day classes. I honestly wasted my entire day being polite about it but I should have demanded my money back and reported her to the BBB. If the class was $50 I wouldn't have been so ticked but I really regret being suckered in. She did offer us to come back for a free session where we could work on whatever we want and ask questions. I did not return. My clothes and all my belongings smelled of pot when I left her house.
Ask lots of questions before you hand over any money! Like: Did you actually finish your fashion degree? How many of these classes have you done before? What is curriculum we'll go over? What's in the class that makes it worth $400, besides "all of your knowledge"?
