Really good class. Lots of advice from Karen & Bridget and really enjoyed the project they picked. Atmosphere was really good, everyone was friendly and welcoming. I don't have much sewing experience, so I was worried it would be too complicated but with help I managed to make a top within one session (just had to finish the hemming at home). The skills learned will come in very useful for other projects, I'm looking forward to the next session!

I am a complete novice to this course. Bridget and Karen are brilliant, there patience is amazing alongside their talent. It is a fun class with the added benefit of creating something new each time.

Prior to attending a group course I had a 121 session with Bridget and I'm so pleased I did! Not only is she an inspiring lady but I learnt so many tips that otherwise would have taken me a lot of trial and error. Very much looking forward to the group sessions and would highly recommend a 121 with Bridget for any level

I was nervous before going but I loved the atmosphere of the course. I felt it was just right for me who is not very advanced. We made a lovely purse bag and everybody was easy to chat to. I would definitively recommend and I will be going regularly. Thank you to Bridget and Karen for sharing their knowledge !

I had a great experience with lovely Bridget. She was very friendly and helpful. She taught me a lot in such a short time. End of the session l came away very proud, with my beatiful bag made by me!
Thank you so much Bridget!

I went to this class yesterday for the first time and loved it. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. It was really an intermediate project rather than a beginners project but the others who had been going for a while helped me with the tricky parts and I am really excited to have made my own bag with a lining, zip and box corners. I think Bridget and Karen try to choose a project each month that practises a new skill and I am looking forward to the next one. It's definitely easier to bring your own sewing machine, but there is everything there that you might need or have forgotten. A great class overall!

This is a really laid back and friendly group. The tutors Karen and Bridget are so helpful and friendly, and whether your a complete beginner or dabbled with sewing a litttle, you will come out of each session amazed by your creations. I love attending when I can.
