Francia was an incredible teacher. Very knowledgeable and supportive. She really made me feel like I could do whatever I set my mind to! I definitely would say I've been inspired to follow this new-found hobby through, go to another class and keep adding to my skills. So excited to one day own my own sewing machine!

Francia was really welcoming and friendly and taught us LOADS in the short time we had. I’m so pleased to practice new skills and hopefully book in some more courses.

Fab workshop, lovely atmosphere, and I walked home having learned basic stitches and mended a dress. Now keen to purchase a sewing machine for the first time in my life! Thanks Jen :-)
Leona - 23 March 2023
I learned how to thread the machine and how to do different stitches, teacher was very friendly, venue was okay but comfy seats would be good, used my own machine which was great.

Great 3 hours going over the basics, with a machine and by hand. Small group so very easy to ask questions and make sure we all understood. Great help/advise for mending clothes. My daughter (16) got some material and did a fantastic job of fixing her jacket with the stitches she had learnt.

Elise MacDonald - 23 August 2022
really enjoyed the class. First time using a sewing machine and felt I got a grasp on the basics. Also surprised by how much I enjoyed learning some new hand sewing stitches. The class was small and the teacher so lovely. Would definitely recommend!
Jen Harris - 8 May 2022
Friendly knowledgeable teacher and a good class size, small enough that you could get personal attention when you needed it but also good to have others there with their own questions etc. Definitely recommend this for anyone who's a complete beginner or like me just very very rusty!
Patrick Dunne - 8 May 2022
The workshop was very good. Very welcoming and helpful. I am as complete beginner but have signed up for a 4 week dressmaking course with remode as a result of this course!

An excellent introduction to sewing techniques, I brought my own small project which I was able to complete within the time - highly recommend!
Andrea Fraser - 20 March 2022
I very much enjoyed the course in basic dressmaking. It was good revision for me as I haven't sewn much for several years, and it has encouraged me to get going again, with more confidence.
