There was 7 students, but despite this nobody was left with out help and guidance when they needed it. I made a lot of mistakes :( but despite this I was guided back on track by Barley- I am quite proud of the finished product and new skills gained. Would throughly recommend this course !

Barley was very good explaining the techniques for sewing and assembling all the different parts of the utility roll. She was also very good at looking after everyone, and making sure that we had her support and attention when we needed it. The class was a good size: there were 9 of us. There was also plenty of fabrics, zips, buttons, bias binding and ribbons to choose from. There were a couple of ladies who brought their own sewing machine, which is handy as Barley showed them how to do buttonholes and other techniques using their machine. It was a well run class in a lovely crafty space, and the class is something that has spurred me on to do more sewing !

I simply loved the class.. Didn't feel like leaving. Barley is such a passionate teacher and an ambitious one too. She taught each one of us very patiently and made sure we worked diligently. Everyone left with a happy face, skilled hands and a completed product. I would highly recommend her classes.
