What Students are Saying

If you’re looking to jump start a sewing business, see Claudia Buchanan at Home Fashions U. I went from serious hobbyist, to serious small business in a few short months after attending Claudia’s “Start your own home decor sewing business”. I could sew, but was a little lost when it came to locating the tools and making the necessary contacts for success. Claudia’s expertise in the field, and her desire to share her knowledge made this class a treasure trove of resource. I never dreamed that I could expand so quickly into a viable workroom. This class is for anyone who is serious about a sewing business – you won’t be disappointed!
