Classes, Maintance Instruction and Machine Rental

I am currently offering both virtual and in-person classes, as well as maintenance instruction and machine rental in my studio

Virtual class review:

"I was so frustrated with my chain stitch machine before I met Huck! He really changed the game for me, got on FaceTime with me multiple times to help me get my machine running.  It can be super daunting to approach the wild world of chain stitching, but with Huck as your guide you’re gonna be just fine!! I can’t thank him enough for all his help and encouragement!"  -Kaitlyn A.
