I had a great experience during my week long upholstery course with Sam. I had minimal sewing experience and Sam gave very thorough and patient instructions. Afterward I felt confident to go and test my new skills on my own boat! (Turned out great) The one thing I cannot credit enough is the continued support and willingness to answer questions after the course ended. I can’t wait to take the canvas cover course to continue my learning :)                                       Jessica D
