I saw your book online, placed a call, paid and bought it. I have to express how happy I am to have your book and to tell you that your work has brought my dream of knowing how to sew for myself closer to reality. I must confess, the book has really helped me a lot. I don't really know how to thank you or what to say, because I have tried searching for sewing books at the bookshops and online, but could only find sewing books on how to alter or place pattern on a fabric and cut. None could teach me how to measure parts of the body, how to make a pattern and sew as your book does. So far I have not seen any other book written that could give such details.
I want to say thank you, God bless you and give you the grace to keep to this good work you are doing. You have helped people like me who are always busy and dream of being a fashion designer.
I have just finished reading your book and its awesome. I truly mean that. I have been looking for a book like this for ages. I have wanted to sew since I was in diapers (Lol!). But funds has always been the issue.
Started sewing for my dolls with needles and thread as a kid. I was literally busting with excitement when I got the book. I recently acquired a sewing machine and can't wait to start sewing. God bless you Henrietta. You don't know how much this means to me.
Wish I had bought your book much earlier
Thank you so much for the books. So simple to understand.
I was glued to The Ultimate Guide To Running a Profitable Fashion Business.
The book is superb. The income and expenses part is awesome.
No 1 agenda for tomorrow is opening of business account. Thank you ma.
I appreciate all your efforts toward making us better business women.
These books are very easy to understand, and the content is arranged in a step-by-step manner.
The language is also very easy to understand, you don't even need a dictionary!
And they comprise of almost everything you need as an up coming fashion designer.
