Susie Brown writes: I found Jane Foster's studio online.I felt very welcome in the sew lab and had help with my Chanel style jacket project. I can sew pretty well, but Jane emphasizes the importance of fit right from the pattern to the completed garment. She has a great ability to make sure that your garment is well fitted. In addition I have learned more about color and how it effects the way you look.

Jane has helped me a lot with pressing techniques. I now know when to steam and when to dry  press.   I recommend Jane for beginners because she is patient, and also for advanced sewers because she will take you to heights you never thought you would reach with your sewing.

Maria and Jane

Jane, I want to thank you for your generous heart and spirit that makes your sewing class such a special place.

Your enthusiasm, creativity and kindness creates a place in time like no other.  Somehow you have transformed something that could be simply a business transaction into a place that brings women together to work, create, support and inspire each other.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jane,  the curved waist band you helped me make a few Mondays ago is Wonderful!!! 

You've changed waist bands forever for me.  I finally got it basted on tonight and it fits perfectly.  What a difference.  There was no struggle putting it on and it looks and feels great.  Thanks so much.

Jane.  Thank you for helping me choosing the color scheme for my studio!  It really turned out nice and I got a lot of compliments on that.  You're my inspiration for this whole project!!  It's hard to believe how many years I have been coming to your sewing workshops.  I have learned tremendously over the last few years, but I'm sure there're more to learn. 

So as long as you're teaching, I'll be there!

A student from Berkeley writes " At Stone Mountain and Daughter, I found Jane Foster-- the sewing teacher I thought I'd forever seek in vain: a virtuoso at garment design and construction who liberally shares her knowledge, her enthusiasm and her imagination.

Jane. I am so lucky to be able to sew with you and your wonderful group of ladies. You are a fabulous teacher with a wealth of knowledge you are willing to share. I appreciate the attention you give me in fitting all my garments and the patience you show in answering my numerous questions.
