My time at VCC was truly all I had hoped for and more. But it was intense, it made you work for it, and I think that's part of what sets this program apart.

I have developed skills from every course that will help me in any direction I take. The program appealed to me because it was self-paced and the instructors are very experienced and well-known in the industry.

Excellent instruction and support for something I never thought I could do myself as a beginner. Sewing techniques were explained very thoroughly. I wish the class was longer.
