I had a beginner lesson with holly on her free motion embroidery, it's was brilliant! She went though everything so thoroughly and explained every step making sure I understood ( which in itself deserves a medal). It was the kick start I needed to become confident with a machine again! I will definitely be booking another course with holly once everything re opens again for me and my sister !

Response from Holly Edwards Textiles:

Thankyou so much! See you soon xx

What can I say! Holly has the patience of a saint. I arrived at her workshop with my 6 year old sewing machine that I had , frankly, become scared of! Holly calmly took my daughter and i through all the basics and we ended our lesson managing to appliqué. She definitely ignited a love of sewing in me and will always be grateful for that.
I’ve gone on to do other classes with Holly and can’t wait to book in for some more.

Response from Holly Edwards Textiles:

Thankyou so much Alison 😍
