In addition to her 6-day seminars, Susan is sought-after as a teacher and lecturer for shorter events. Listed here are the venues at which she is scheduled to appear.

Join me for 4 days at Mendel Goldberg, the extraordinary New York fabric store on the city's lower east side. It's been there since 1890, and the current proprietress is Alice Wildes, the 4th generation of her family to run the store. It's hard to imagine a more beautiful setting in which to hold a class – talk about inspiration!
You'll concentrate on working on a single garment - you can start something new, you can get guidance on a current project, you can get un-stuck....and as we work, you'll be inspired by me, by your fellow students, and by our gorgeous surroundings.
The class is limited to 8 students. Click on the date to book a spot.
