My daughter started with a summer camp at FSS and enjoyed it so much that she continued classes this school year. Mrs. Pattie not only teaches the technical, but encourages the creative too! The small class size allows for personalized attention in a relaxed, cozy environment. Thank you, Mrs. Pattie!! Beth K.-Fairhope

My daughter loved her summer camp experience and now attends weekly lessons which she never wants to miss! Pattie is so kind and patient. The kids love her. Terri C. -Fairhope


Ms. Williams has the ability to teach others how to sew while making it fun. My daughter has progressed from barely knowing how to thread a needle to inserting zippers and sewing her own pajamas in less than six months! I highly recommend Fairhope Sewing School to anyone wanting to learn how to sew or improve their sewing skills. Sheila B. -Fairhope

Mrs.Pattie has taught me everything I know. I had always wanted to sew but never knew how until she helped me. She has been the greatest teacher and if you want to sew you have found a lady with a really big heart and i know she will help you and teach you as good as she did me.

Pattie is such a great teacher! I was a complete beginner, not even knowing how to thread a machine or what a bobbin was. She has taught me everything that I could ever need to know, and done so in a calm, encouraging way. Such a pleasure to learn how to sew with Pattie! I definitely recommend her.

Mrs.Pattie is a great teacher and she taught me so many things I didn’t

 Know how to sew before, and I have been having so much fun with her and spending time with her is something I really enjoy doing this with her.

Mrs. Pattie is an amazing teacher! I learned enough in one class to begin sewing on my own! Mrs. Pattie shares a wealth of sewing knowledge in her class. She... is very patient and has a sweet disposition. The class was very organized and so much fun!!! I would definitely recommend Fairhope Sewing School to anyone that wants to learn to sew or would like to learn advanced skills! Danielle Wilkinson - Daphne, AL



First class with Patti in a beginning sewing class and I walked away with a very good understanding of the sewing machine, tools needed to sew and practical exp...erience with sewing. Although, Patti is a wealth of knowledge she is very patient with me as a beginner and I would recommend her as an instructor to the very young or older adult as myself. I hope to remain a student as long as she is available. Dessie-Daphne, AL


Pattie is just wonderful! I had so much fun learning to sew and am excited to start new projects! I was really nervous to attend because I didn't even know how sew on a button. Pattie made me feel at ease in her class and helped me work through my mistakes without judgment. I recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn the basics. Melissa - Daphne, AL

I loved my beginners' class with Pattie! I can't wait to take the advanced classes this fall! Cameron-Spanish Fort, AL



Pattie is a wonderful thorough teacher. You feel and see the passion she has for sewing and her desire to pass that passion on to her students. I highly recommed Fairhope Sewing School to anyone who wants to learn the art of sewing.  Now I am off to buy myself a sewing machine!!

From Frances Yance:

Dear Pattie,

One can only imagine the time and effort you put forth creating these adorable projects my granddaughter has made in your sewing classes.  Even as a beginner, she has experienced or been exposed to a variety of methods, she can not sew herself with little guidance.  Thank you for your dedication and willingness to teach the next generation this beloved and valuable skill.



From Blair Cross:

Dear Pattie,

For the last two summers my daughter has taken several of your sewing classes.  You can see how proud she is of her accomplishments when she shows us what she has made.  To say she learned so much while being thrilled at the same time, is an understatement.  We both look forward to her classes in the future.
