Loved this kit.
Great quality materials, beautiful touches, very clear instructions.
Loved the experience from start to finish.
Lovely communication from the start when I asked for advice on which colour fittings to match the purple leather.
Response from RJ Leather Sewing School:Hi Ceri. Thanks for your kind words. Your bag looks brilliant. You have sewn it beautifully. Love the outfit you made to match. I look forward to hearing from you again. All the best. Rebecca xx
Just done our second course with Bex to make a Hobo Bag - yet again Brilliant!
Another immensely enjoyable day, Bex is so patient with us and her knowledge and tips make the bag look professional. Added to all that she kept us supplied with drinks and nibbles - she worked so hard.
Would highly recommend her courses to anyone even if you have never sewed before. Bex manages to instill confidence, even when you make mistakes and mess up her machines!
We're planning our next bag session as I type.
I signed up for the 1 day Back Pack making course and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tuition and knowledge Rebecca provides is first class. I have since signed up for 2 more courses and I am sure there will be more. The studio is nice and easy to find, all the materials you need are to hand and plenty of parking available. I can highly recommend Rebecca's courses, if you are thinking about signing up and are a little unsure I would definitely say, Go For It!
Oh my goodness what a fantastic course, my husband and I loved it. Bex is a great teacher who instantly put us at ease. The result at the end of the day was 2 very professional looking bags - how amazing. We are already planning our next course.
I am definitely not a natural sewing bee, so was pleasantly amazed and delighted by the quality of the finished result, due mainly to the expertise shared by Rebecca and the fantastic facilities and materials on offer. Coming back with a friend for another course shortly!
Signed up for the two day course as I was in the area and to try something new.. .. not sure I had expectations of making something so professional looking
With Bec’s support and guidance I created an amazingly professional bag that is certainly eye catching and doesn’t look hand crafted but yet is fully unique
I would certainly recommend the course and finding time to attend a workshop.. .. but leave room for me to attend another couple yet!!!
Have just completed a weekend course with RJ Leather.
Can absolutely recommend to anyone who already works with leather or just wants a fun weekend learning a new skill.
Rebecca is lovely, very talented and very patient!
Can't wait to do another one
I won the clutch bag kit in an Instagram giveaway and I was amazed at the attention to detail, as it even included a Teflon foot for my sewing machine and all the pieces came pre cut. I made the bag in an afternoon as the instructions were really straightforward to follow. This would be a great gift to give someone who sews.
Fantastic service. Impressed that Rebecca sent me a message to let me know my order had been delivered. It arrived very quickly, beautifully packaged. Looking forward to working on the kit.
Response from RJ Leather Sewing School:Hi Maxine. Thanks so much for your kind words. I really hope you enjoy making the Charlie Leather Tote and using it after, its such a handy size bag I have one myself. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions while making it. Happy sewing. Rebecca xx
What a lovely way to spend a weekend. The studio is well equipped with good light ,the material choices were very plentiful & a very relaxed atmosphere. My handbag is almost professional! Generally it was very inspiring.
Myself and friend decided not to waste time and money on christmas and birthday presents but would instead have experiences together. We are booked on the two day course with Rebecca in November but prior to that attended the shopping and leather trip to London. We had a fantastic day, we went round parts of London you would not normally see and gained fantastic experience in leather and trimmings. We would really recommend this and are looking forward to our making course.
I attended the Tote bag course and had a fantastic day, Rebecca is so welcoming and the studio is perfect, everything you need is to hand. Rebecca explained all about the different types of leather and various tools, then provided support & advice thro the whole experience. I would highly recommend this course as an introduction to bag making, everyone loves the bag I made, including me :)
I loved this course, I learnt so much and was very pleased to take home my finished product. Rebecca the teacher was fabulous she gave me the exactly the right amount of help and encouraged me to do things I had never done before. This course would suit a beginner or a more experienced leather worker as Rebecca always seemed to have something new to teach me.
I highly recommend it Thankyou
Had a brilliant day making a tote bag with Bex who was the most patient teacher. So well organised especially as it was only her second class since lockdown. We learnt so much that we are going to go back for another bag! Excellent value - Bex even stayed late so that we left with our bags totally completed thanks for an amazing day see you soon!
This is a great course and I'd highly recommend this to anyone who fancies having a go with leather sewing. As I've only used a sewing machine a handful of times, Rebecca was very supportive, providing instructions and boosting your confidence along the way! Having attended in August 2020 where people have been very cautious of their activities and whereabouts but I felt very safe in the workshop with Rebecca. It's a great feeling at the end of the day, walking out of the workshop with a bag you have made! 100% recommend :)
