I learned how to sew at school but hadn’t used a machine for over 30 years. Tansy was great at explaining both the basics of a sewing machine and sewing techniques. I’ve gained in skills and confidence- managing to make my own curtains after the course finished!
Response from cheeky sew and sew:Thank you for your review, building skills, knowledge and confidence is exactly what we aim to do. Well done on your curtains, and your dressmaking too, you've definitely got the sewing bug. Happy Sewing!
I was a complete beginner- had never even turned a sewing machine on and was very nervous! By the end I was confident in setting up and using one and was happily making bags and cushion covers etc. Tansy is kind, patient and very knowledgeable. I loved all the tips she gave us about how to make things easier. Thank you so much!!

I had bought an electric sewing machine but was a little nervous of it, having only used my grandma's hand-driven machine before.
This course gave me the information and confidence I needed to use it. Tansy was very good at explaining things and very patient with our questions and incompetencies!
Response from cheeky sew and sew:Thank you for your feedback. I'm pleased you found the course useful, we do aim to cover all the basics so you feel more informed and confident, Happy sewing!!
