My husband booked the first workshop (Make A Bag) of this 4 week course as a present. Having only done limited sewing whilst at school, I found the class a great introduction into learning how to use the sewing machine and using basic stitches. We were also given paper templates and scrap fabric in order to get used to using the machine and to practice sewing with different stitches and experience how to handle the fabric when sewing in straight lines, around curves and changing directions. By the end of the class, I came away with a beautiful shopping bag that was going to come in handy and that I felt very proud of. Rachel was very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. All materials were provided and the studio was well equipped with everything you would need (including tea and biscuits!). We had a group of five people which was nice as it was a friendly environment that everyone felt they could ask questions as we went along or general tips and advice on sewing. The studio is a great space which also showcases items that have been made in other classes. There’s so many other art/craft classes that I now want to try! I found the first workshop and my experience very inspiring and this led me to book the other 3 workshops on this course: Making a zipped Make up bag, Make A Cushion Cover with Piping, and Make Pyjama Bottoms. I have thoroughly enjoyed all these workshops (not to mention using my creations!) and my sewing confidence has increased during the course. I would recommend this to anyone interested in sewing or looking to learn some new skills.

Excellent course for beginners! Made a shopping bag, a zipped make up bag, a piped cushion cover with a concealed zip and a pair of pyjama bottoms! Quite an achievement considering the fact I had never used a sewing machine before. Rachel is a gifted teacher with endless patience for beginners. She is a fountain of knowledge and always helfpul and smiling. Venue is easy to find. Tea / coffee and biscuits were offered at each session.

Couldn’t have been better. Rachel is a great teacher, making everyone feel at ease. Brilliant for beginners as each class teaches new skills leading up to the final project. At the end of the four weeks I had a pair of wearable pyjama bottoms cut from a pattern! I will definitely be signing up for more courses. A very enjoyable way to spend a Saturday morning.

It was a very good course - enjoyable, well structured and paced. The teacher did a really good job in building confidence. I learnt alot and was proud of producing something each week - especially the pyjama bottoms - which I wear all the time!

Fabulous course. I was afraid of my sewing machine when I started, but not now. With Racheal's great teaching and guidance I made a tote bag and origami box a make up bag and pyjama bottoms. I now feel confident to tackle sewing great things on my machine.

About your host, Craft My Day LTD

Rachel - Owner and Founder of 'Craft My Day'

‚ÄčSince completing her¬†degree in ‚ÄėCostume and Technical effects for the performing arts‚Äô at London College of Fashion in 2001, Rachel¬†worked¬†freelance¬†in the film and events industries for many years before taking¬†a break to be at home with her¬†three children whilst they were small.

She began teaching at a private sewing studio, alongside freelance work and grew to love the rewarding nature of teaching.

‚Äč'I can never seem to get enough of learning new skills, which I love to share‚Ķ'

In 2016 Rachel decided to start up her own Craft studio and began to work with other local artists to create a unique space for people to come and learn a variety of crafts in a fun and relaxed setting. ‚Äč Her passion for textiles and design began during¬†school when she¬†found her¬†own teacher a real inspiration. 'She developed my creativity but also gave me confidence for life. I aspire to recreate that experience, and inspire others to start their own creative journeys.' ‚Äč Rachel qualified as Powertex trainer in 2016 and is¬†also really excited to share this fantastic product.

Rachel believes that all people are creative and with a bit of patience and encouragement can be taught ways to express that innate ability and get a real sense of satisfaction and enjoyment.
