I would thoroughly recommend this course. It was very organised and well run from start to finish. Shortly after booking, the resources arrived in a beautifully packed box. It was a pleasure to unpack and definitely got you excited about the course.
The live session itself was so enjoyable. Meg was very patient and helpful and talked through everything well, demonstrating each step so you built on your skills through the session. By the end I felt I had gained a really good insight in to free hand machine embroidery and I’m very keen to keep learning. Thank you, Meg!
