Before this class I was quite apprehensive as it’d been a while since I’d last used a sewing machine, but Donna was very patient, encouraging and made me feel at ease. By the end of the class I was feeling much more confident and came away with lots of lovely items. I would definitely recommend this class as Donna is a great teacher and you’re sure to enjoy yourself.
I had not sewn for a long time and was looking to gain a bit of confidence on using a sewing machine again. Donna is absolutely lovely; very supportive and patient. I feel that the lovely peaceful surroundings helped put me at my ease. I will definitely be returning to gain some experience in another area. Would definitely recommend Donna to anybody looking for a new hobby or to gain some skills or improve on existing ones
I was very apprehensive as I had not used a sewing machine since my teens and my confidence is non existent re technology. I needn't have worried, Donna was very supportive, understanding and patient with me. A wonderful selection of fabrics were provided along with comfortable surroundings in which to relax and learn. Not only did I succeed in creating some wonderful items I gained the confidence to start a sewing project at home which has lain dormant for some time. thank you Donna.
Donna is an amazing teacher, she's very patient and willing to show or talk you through any parts that you may have issue with. The course is well worth the time and money and will give you a good understanding of the basics of using a sewing machine and cutting a basic pattern. In addition to the above you get to come away with something you've made yourself that looks phenomenal!
I had never used a machine before attending Donnas' course. Donna was extremely friendly and approachable and she gave very clear instructions on what to do and was extremely patient when dealing with a totally novice who could not even thread a normal needle
She made the whole experience informative and fun. I was very proud of my finished item.
And I am sure she will have no trouble in expanding her classes and making every single one an enjoyable experience for all who attend.
