How good is the "Tutus that Dance" seminar? Here is what one of last years students has to say.

Last year Linda came all the way from Perth, Australia to attend the Tutus that Dance seminar in Las Vegas. This is what she had to say about her experience.

"I had started to fall in love with tutu making about a year before the seminar when my daughter needed a tutu for her first solo and I discovered Tutus That Dance’s fabulous patterns.  Whilst the information I had already learnt from online sources had helped me make several tutus, I knew that an opportunity to learn tutu construction in person, from experts, would provide an opportunity to accelerate my learning and help me achieve the results I wanted much faster.  Suzanne and Dani are both excellent instructors, fun, patient and so very generous with their extensive knowledge.  With a backdrop of Las Vegas, a great venue at Suncoast for sewing and dining as well as a fabulous, friendly group of attendees ranging from fellow beginners to accomplished costume creators, every element worked together to make this an amazing, inspirational and fun experience.  I came away from the Tutu Seminar with new skills, new friends, great memories, two very full suitcases stuffed with tutus and the inspiration that comes from meeting others who are already living your dream.  I can’t wait until I can come back!"

Here are some of the beautiful tutus Linda has made. using the knowledge she gained at the seminar.
