Claire is a brilliant teacher, this was my second lesson with her and she exceeded my expectations again! She patiently took me through step-by-step (online learning is not a barrier!), and answered all my questions. Now I have my own fit block and the confidence to make my own patterns fit me. Looking forward to seeing what she offers next!
