Nef Boles - - #4134

I signed myself up for the Beginners course as I've always wanted to get back in to sewing and making my own clothes. The teachers were great, friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is really calming and relaxing and the venue had everything I need to start me off. Will definitely be going back for more sessions! :)

Kate Reseen - - #4133

I loved the classes - teacher Laura was very positive, patient and lighthearted. The venue is nice and bright - well organised and felt homely. I was really pleased with the bag I made and have already used the downloadable instructions to make another one at home! Although you don't need a machine in the classes, I used their ones.
I really recommend these classes - excellent school. Looking forward to coming to the making Clothes from Patterns course next!
