"I had such an enjoyable and informative day learning how to make machine made curtains with Janet.
I was a complete beginner and Janet took the time to explain how to set up the machine and how to sew straight. I was given the opportunity to practise sewing and received lots of great instruction, tips and feed back.
After building up my confidence Janet then moved me onto making the curtains. There is a lot to learn and I was given really detailed notes to take away with me that broke everything down into really manageable steps. I was guided through all theses steps and Janet was there to help and guide me throughout. By the end of the session I had managed to make myself a lined curtain!
Janet also gave me some very good advice on some curtains that I was planning to make.
The lesson was really relaxed and Janet is really good fun and very experienced. I am so glad I did this course on a one to one, as I do not think that could have learned so much in a group lesson. I will definitely be back to do one of her other courses once I have mastered the lined curtains."
"The Roman blind making course was great. Janet is very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. I’m very pleased with the sample blind I made and confident that I can now make some lovely furnishings for my home and for friends - a really enjoyable day, thank you, Janet."
"I had such a fun day with Janet and came away with my prototype roman blind - so proud! I can't wait to make my own blind now and feel much more confident armed with Janet's detailed notes and useful spread sheet to work out my measurements. I would definitely recommend this course - Janet makes you feel very welcome and provides a delicious lunch and plenty of tea! "
"What a lovely, amazing lady/teacher. I was quite nervous arriving as a complete novice and worried I was going to make a complete show of myself! I had no need to worry. Janet put me at ease as soon as I arrived. She felt like an old friend. She was so patient and explained everything in a way I understood. She provided all the equipment required and because I took my new sewing machine she checked it over and explained everything. Today she has sent me the instructions from the day together with an essential equipment list, which is invaluabIe. I learnt so much and Janet has given me the confidence to just have a go. Thank you for the most incredible day. If anyone is thinking of doing this - DO IT - it is well worth the money. Thank you Janet. Can't wait to get started!"
