Judi And absolutely brilliant teacher. My cushion making skills have definitely moved on hugely following her session. I now feel I have the confidence to sell my cushions and feel that they are professionally made

Really happy with this course. It completely delivered what it promised and more. Judi was a great teacher and a lot of fun. She went out of her way to adapt the course for my wants and take me through all that I needed very patiently. I like the zoom 1-2-1 in these times and pleased that it worked so well. I'll be looking for more like this, and definitely more from Judi. Thank you.
