"Outstanding. Catherine is an excellent, patient teacher, and clearly has a great level of technical knowledge and skill in all things sewing/fitting. "

Chris Roberts reviewed: Fab Fitting - Measuring Up

"Clearly explained with good handouts. Taken through all the measurements you need and when to add ease. Help with patterns that you are or want to make. That was an eye opener to see how a lady who is normally a size 14 needed a size 20 in some areas. Can’t wait to measure up my patterns."

Ellen Cottam reviewed: Sewing for the Terrified 2-day Intensive

"I took the plunge after researching beginners sewing classes near me and arrived for my 'sewing for the Terrified'. I was warmly welcomed by Catherine and with her enthusiasm and patience she soon had me sewing without being terrified! I thoroughly enjoyed my day as Catherine's teaching class is very well thought out coupled with handouts and homework o). Catherine has extensive knowledge and she is very generous with it. Due to my fantastic experience I have since booked onto a couple more classes with Catherine. I highly recommend Catherine's classes!"

Sandra Lee reviewed: Sewing for the Terrified 2-day Intensive

"Before I attended Catherine's classes, I had little idea of how to use my sewing machine properly or how to sew even simple items well. Now, when I wear something I made, I actually get the occasional compliment!"
