What's included in the price?
All materials, instructions and equipment are included. Plus tea and homemade cake :) You are very welcome to bring your own sewing machine to use during classes but I do have machines available.
I'd not sewn more than a button for 25 years and I'd never used a sewing machine. Clair took us through the processes step by step and at our own pace. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and found it incredibly relaxing after a busy day. The cakes and company were also fabulous!
