Attended: Make Cool Embroidery Wall Art


Great class! Melissa was very sweet and encouraging and I like that it was very free-form rather than "you have to embroider this." I do, however, feel that because I was at the back of the class I could not see the stitching she was doing, especially because the thread and fabric were both very light colors. I would suggest using something like a black thread on white fabric for better visibility, and to do the stitching examples from both sides of the table, or have everyone come gather closer during that 10 minutes. Had fun and loved BYOB!

Attended: Self-Love Hand Lettering


This class was super fun and easy to follow. I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to produce something that looked finished since the length of the class is only 2 hours and I knew little to nothing about hand lettering, but our instructor (Jessie) was awesome and made sure nobody was left behind! She has a lot of experience with hand lettering and led us through step-by-step instructions that culminated in a finished print for us to take home. Each person's print was unique and different, but they all looked polished. You'd never know we were all total amateurs + the class really made it easy to produce something beautiful. I definitely recommend this class and plan to take another one at CraftJam soon!

Danielle was extremely knowledgeable and fun to learn from - she kept the class moving at a good pace and then even let us stay a little late to finish up our projects. It was great to get such nice equipment to take home and continue practice - it genuinely feels like someone is taking the time to indoctrinate you into modern calligraphy life. :-)

Attended: Make a String Art Wall Decoration


So much fun just wish it was 30 minutes longer, a little more structured, and only basic options so it didn’t get too complicated. Will definitely be taking more classes in the future!

Attended: Make a Custom Leather Wallet


The class was fun and informative. The Instructor, Olivia was very helpful and knowledge. Just some snafu's with elevator usage prior to the class, so it did not start on time. Olivia did adjust the time on the other side of the class.

The class was so fun! Jessie was a great teacher, very knowledgable, and used the time well. She was able to help everyone individually when we needed it and gave us great suggestions to improve our final projects. I learned a lot and can't wait to make more lettering projects! Thank you Jessie!
