Want to review this course?

I learnt to sew on Judi's "Get to know your sewing machine" course, then progressed to the "Intro to dressmaking". I am soo pleased with making my sleeveless top!! Its been on several holidays with me and as I got the pattern to keep, I have made two more at home. Judi is so patient and helpful. Looking forward to doing more.
