Rachel was so lovely and patient. The course taught us how to use a sewing machine and then we came home with a home made bag. Facilities were excellent and tea/coffee offered too. Small groups, so lots of help available at all times. Looking forward to another course in the future. Thank you Rachel for a lovely morning, and yes I've bought a sewing machine.
