Debbie (from OK) chose a 2-day private workshop (Bodice & Pants fitting) with Glenda the Good Stitch & Elsabe Hurn from S. Africa. 

 Comments from Debbie...'  I HIGHLY recommend Glenda’s Sure-Fit Designs program and her 1:1 workshop! I have taught fit, have made my own patterns for years, but Glenda’s and Elsabe’s skill sets are at a whole different level! You will NOT be disappointed. I can’t wait to start designing a new wardrobe with my bodice and pant blueprints!


1-1 Fit & Sew Retreat

Lynette (from UT) chose a 1-day private workshop (Bodice) with Glenda the Good Stitch. 

 Comments from Lynette...'  Glenda is exceptional in her knowledge and execution of making the pattern fit. She immediately recognized my asymmetrical shoulders of which I was unaware. It took a few extra steps finalizing the pattern, but it fit beautifully when completed. I have always struggled getting a good fit from a commercial pattern and now I know why. I’m so glad I took advantage of this opportunity…just wish I had know about it 25 years earlier. Thank you Glenda for your hospitality, kindness and patience. And I can’t forget Wes…thanks for making lunch and being my taxi driver.

Private 1;1 Workshop  

At machine

 Judi (from CA) chose a 1 1/2-day private workshop with Glenda the Good Stitch.  Judi wanted to focus on her bodice/blouse as she always had issues with her forward shoulders and slightly rounded back.  Great results were achieved!
Comments from Judi...On a scale of 1-10, it was a 20!  My expectation was exceeded in ways I could not imagine. Glenda gives you more than the cost of the  1-on-1. Glenda  had me work with her so that I learned the how-to for each area we modified. She is divine as is her husband Wes.  They make you feel so comfortable, like you are family not a guest. Words cannot express the feelings I had during the 1 1/2 days I spent and the gratitude I felt.  My husband gave me the trip and Glenda-time as a Christmas gift.  You may just want to gift yourself☺'

Comments from Cathy...Glenda's teaching is systematic & professional.  She is an expert in fitting, an excellent instructor and very talented seamstress - numerous skills rolled into one. However, too often experts in their field can be overwhelming.  That wasn't the case with this training!  In addition to the excellent teaching, Glenda makes the entire experience comfortable and exceptional from the greeting at the front door to the last 'good-bye'.  Do I have a regret? - Yes, not scheduling at least another day.  So if you are considering the one to one training, and have the ability to spend additional time - Do It!  You won't be sorry.

I have tried for more then 20 years to get a perfect fit and now have it.  Walked away with so much more than I expected.  I would recommend the workshop to everyone.  It was definitely an experience I will never forget. And look forward to perfect fitting garments I can make for myself now.
