What Students Say

"Dedication and Knowledge"

"I would like to thank Lucy for her dedication and knowledge that she shared with all of us.
The little tricks and tips that only someone with her experience can offer is invaluable to
our sewing knowledge."

Anateresa, Algonquin College

"Great Passion in her Teaching"

"At all times, Liudmila showed great passion in her teaching. She showed great interest in each student’s progress while recognizing each
student’s learning abilities and was patient with students that required more attention."

Nicole, Algonquin College

"I couldn't have asked for a better teacher"

"I came into this course with no knowledge of sewing. I have learned so much and feel confident in taking more sewing classes. I am very impressed with Lucy! I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!"
