Thanks to a gift card I booked onto the Making an A-line skirt course and it’s amazing! Rachel is so lovely - very welcoming, relaxed and super clear in explaining what to do and how and when! Learnt so much on week one and can’t wait to see my finished skirt! Thank you Rachel! x

I really enjoyed these classes and definitely learnt a lot from them. What I liked the most is that you have plenty of time to finish your skirt which makes the process less stressful and more fun to do and allows time to correct and learn from the mistakes that you will make as a beginner. I would definitely do more classes here.

I really enjoyed my sewing class Rachel is great at explaining everything and will happily re explain or demonstrate when you are not sure. It was also great being part of a small group and so you can learn from each others choice of design such as wanting the skirt a different length and how to adapt the pattern. I felt a great sense of achievement to make something that I can wear and fits me perfectly. Looking forward to attending another class in the future.
