I took the Intro to Sewing Machine Class and am now one week into the Fashion Lab. Diane is a great teacher -- she's enthusiastic about teaching and seems to know her stuff when it comes to sewing. She shared lots of sewing tricks, best practices, and money saving tips.

The projects are a lot of fun and a great stress reliever after work! I knew nothing about sewing machines when I first came, but Diane created a welcoming environment for all levels.

Her book is required for Fashion Lab (it's on the supply list on the web site, so she's up front about it), but I didn't feel like she kept trying to sell her book at all during the classes. She has a couple copies for sale at her studio (which she doesn't mention unless you ask), but freely tells people to buy it on Amazon, where you get a big discount.

The classes can be on the expensive side, but it's Manhattan (and in a very convenient location at that!) , so what do you expect?!

Pros: Instructor, Location, Fun projects, Accesible to all levels

Cons: Price

Everything looks ok and some of the reviews seem to make this place seem like a crafty fun place to learn. However, an hour into your class you will find that the owner, Diana, who also teaches, knows little to nothing about sewing. I was shocked because she supposedly wrote a book which she keeps trying to get you to purchase the entire time.

I ended up leaving the rushed class without $80 and certainly not the skills I thought I was getting. There are many other places like purl, sew fast and Brooklyn General you could learn at.

Pros: sewing machines provided, located near my work

Cons: poor instruction, inaccurately advertised services

.

this place looks good on paper, but ends up being a royal waste of money. the sewing machines are crappy, the projects are mediocre, the instructor is totally uninterested in teaching and most of all, the classes are just ridiculously expensive. It is a complete ripoff. Try Brooklyn General or Purl Patchwork instead--cheaper, better instruction, and nicer instructors.

Pros: good idea in theory

Cons: overpriced; subpar instruction; poorly organized

I recently discovered Make online from another review, and I'm so glad I did. I signed up for the intro class and the tie bag class and it was the best thing ever. Diana was very nice, inviting, didn't judge you if you had absolutely no knowledge of sewing and takes time to answer any questions you may have about any projects you are working on (at the studio or at home). The hours are convenient, the space is not intimidating at all. I've already made 3 bags since last week and I only took 2 classes. I would def recommend taking a couple of classes at Make workshop. I can't wait to take the invisible zipper, and skirt class!

Pros: Small classes, Instructor is super helpful.

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I've taken a few classes at Make Workshop and loved them all. I've taken block printing, jewelery making and sewing and I can't wait to take more. The space is convenient, cute and totally inviting. The owner Diana really knows what she is doing. She taught the sewing class and made it really fun. I learned so much. The other teachers have been great too. I totally recommend taking some classes at Make!!

I randomly discovered make workshop while on-line and I am so happy that I did...I started with the sewing class and have already moved onto the decoupage class. The studio has such great energy and the one-on-one attention you recieve with each project and or class is extremely helpful. The founder and owner, Diana is so inspiring and "makes" you want to come back and visit the studio more often and you learn all the tricks of the trade on how to make the things you learn about in class at home...I have already made a skirt and turned my kitchen table into crafts area. For anyone who like to be creative, have fun and learn...make workshop is the place to visit! I highly recommend the decoupage class with the girls from SUPERDELUXE!

I've taken a bunch of classes at Make Workshop and they have all been great experiences. The teachers are knowledgeable and friendly. The studio is clean and orderly. The students are always cool and nice and creative. I wish more guys would get into taking classes, but what am I saying, it just means more ladies for me! (just kidding, but it is true that more women seem to be taking classes)

If you want to throw your money down a sewer, then sign up for a class at make workshop. For $80 you would have expected some nice fabric even for an intro to sewing class. There were no notes given out and the lecture was only a couple of minutes. Imagine telling somebody to build a house with a few minutes of instruction and then giving them some blueprints. You would have expected for the amount of money paid, you would have walked out of there knowing something. Learned nothing, it was a cheap ploy on the instructor's end to sell her book.
