The tutor, Tina, was well prepared and we were able to get started straight away. Firstly learning how to wind the bobbins correctly to learning a variety of stitches. Tina taught at a pace that suits the individual and I feel confident to go home and continue learning. A lovely learning atmosphere was created and I had an enjoyable day!
