I requested that the date of my class be changed, albeit a few days before I was scheduled to take part in the class, but I did not receive a response so unfortunately I did not attend so therefore I lost my £45.00. I fully appreciate that it was within the 7 days before the class but I am very disappointed that I did not even receive the courtesy of a reply.

A very intense but enjoyable 3 hours. Excellent tutor who made everyone feel relaxed and encouraged self-confidence. I had never touched a sewing machine before and was therefore amazed at how professional my tote bag looked.
Emma ODonnell - June 11th
Great - I’d never touched a sewing machine before my lesson and left 3 hours later having made my very own tote bag! Sarah-Jane was a great teacher. I’ll definitely book on to other classes to learn how to make cushions, make up bags etc. Highly recommend!

Jenny Yip - April 30th
I never touch or use a sewing machine, so I am a complete beginner to learn how to use one and certainly did not expect to come away with a bag made by myself at the end of the 3 hours lesson ! I thoroughly enjoyed the practical lesson demonstrated and the interaction with the teacher is most valueable in grasping the concept of sewing and produced an item in such a short time at the end ! Amazing ! Thank you very much .
Janaina Crane - April 27th
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was my first time using a sewing machine and I have managed to come back home with a tote bag made by me

Absolutely great class. I cannot recommend it enough. Rachael is a great teacher. Warm and friendly. I had never used a sewing machine before but I learned so much I already feel confident to have a go myself. I made a beautiful bag that I want to frame! I can’t wait to book another 😃
Melissa - September 14th
A great class for a complete novice to sewing. Rachel’s instructions were clear and easy to follow and by the end of 3 hours I had actually made something! Very excited to try out my new found skills and I will certainly be booking on for more courses.

Great fun, very friendly and relaxing. Rachel teaches you to enjoy things and trust the machine. Feel much more confident about using the sewing machine now, and excited about taking more classes in the future.

An overall very enjoyable experience. The time seemed to wiz by. Learnt about threading a sewing machine, practised all the differenct stitches, sewing in straight lines and how to easily sew a perfect curve. Ended the class making a handy tote bag. Can’t wait to book another class.

Alice - January 30th
Rachel was such a great teacher, she went through every detail step by step. so it never felt overwhelming. By the end of the session I was surprised at how confident I felt with a sewing machine and my sewing skills were surprisingly not too bad. I highly recommend this course and will be signing up for more lessons at Craft My Day. 5 stars!
