Lovely to have a teacher who will take time to listen to what you want to learn and build on your current skills in a patient and calm way. Patricia is very patient and has had years of experience as a sewer. She is friendly and knowledgeable. I am enjoying the course.

Patricia was friendly and informative with instructions, know how and suggestions for my sewing project. She gave many practical tips on everything from sourcing materials, patterns, how to use my sewing machine, working out the pattern and dress making. Very flexible with what I wanted to achieve on the course. Patricia willing to share her knowledge and long experience of sewing and dress making. Sessions were relaxed and enjoyable.
