I had a lovely time and made a gorgeous machine embroidered cushion. Lou is really helpful and has lovely cakes available! Really nice atmosphere in group and a few laughs.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you for your lovely review! Lou x
I’m not a sewer. I have had the best time. I cannot believe I have made this lovely picnic rug. Louise is a very good teacher, she has inspired me to carry on and hopefully make beautiful items, with her guidance of course.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you Jan!
What a fabulous course. I came away with something that I still can’t believe that I made. Louise is such an amazing teacher and her ideas and flair with fabric colours and fun projects is second to none.
I am so proud of my picnic rug, although it will never be sat on on the dirty ground!!!! I love it too much.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you so much for your lovely review Julia! You should be proud - your mat was gorgeously made.
I was a complete sewing machine novice until I came on my first sewneedadrink course 6 months ago. Lou is fantastic, calm, patient and above all, she has given me a love of sewing! I’ve tried a variety of her courses, including making a skirt that I wear regularly. I’ve even brought my 8 year old to her family learning sessions and she now has a sewing machine too. Don’t hesitate to book a place on a course!
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you so much for your kind and lovely review.
Lou is a fabulous, helpful, encouraging teacher. I have done a few courses now and have grown in confidence as Louise knows how to get the best from even the most nervous or rusty of sewers. Her projects are creative and use fabulous fabrics and of course there is the all important cake!!! Homemade of course!! I would highly recommend.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you so much for your lovely review x See you again soon.
I made the bottle carrier. I was going to give it to a friend but I like it too much so I've kept it!
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Ha ha! Thank you for your lovely review!
I haven’t completed this particular course but I been to plenty of Louise’s other courses and I can totally recommend them. There’s cake, nice people, great projects and lovely Lou on hand to help.. it’s all you need for a great few hours of sewing. I actually made something too... it’s a studio of wonders and must visit if you are thinking of learning to sew, need a refresher course or just want to sew in the good company of others. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you for your lovely review Hayley....looking forward to seeing you at your next class :)
I love Louise’s courses. I haven’t done the wine bag, but made a number of other items. The session is so enjoyable and I come away with something I have made myself.
Louise is a very good tutor, and always there to help. I met some lovely people, and there was cake to eat! I recommend Louise's classes for those who have not used a machine to those with experience.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you for your review and amazing feedback. So pleased to hear that you have enjoyed the classes!
Sew Need a Drink courses are brilliant. I dabbled in sewing when I was younger and made some of the kids clothes and curtains etc but hadn't done anything for years. The course gave me the confidence to have another go; I made some Xmas presents and things for the house. Looking forward to the 2019 new list of courses!!
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you so much for your lovely review. So pleased to hear that you enjoyed the classes. Please get in touch if you would like to find out about my upcoming classes :)
After I lost my husband I found my evenings long and needed to find a hobby that fitted in with my 3 children and that I could enjoy perhaps every couple of months. This is where Lou comes in!
I've completed a range of workshops with Lou and they have all been fantastic! Simple instructions for someone who has never sewn before or has a little more experience, lots of encouragement and guidance, a super friendly atmosphere with fabulous cake and coffee, you go away with a completed project and a night out! I am now completing projects at home and have a hobby I really enjoy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sew Need a Drink! I'm looking forward to a workshop later this month.
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you for your lovely review Kate :) Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
I love my wine bag so much I didnt want to give it away as a present like I planned! I can't praise Sew Need a Drink workshops enough. Lou is an excellent, patient and encouraging teacher. The classes feel supportive and friendly, and there is delicious cake. You come away with a wonderful finished project which make great gifts (for myself in my case!). And there's cake! I was a complete novice before I started coming to these workshops, and I would never have imagined I could make such lovely things myself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sew Need a Drink to anyone wanting to give sewing a go. Did I mention the cake?
Response from Sew Need a Drink:Thank you so much for your lovely review Sarah. So pleased that you enjoy the classes!
