Brilliant class - Anjum is a great teacher who was very kind and patient and helped me to make several items during the class. As a complete beginner I now feel much more confident to start sewing more items and hope to return for more classes in the future. Highly recommended!

Sharon - 26 November 2023
I was a complete novice, Anjum was incredibly patient and explained things very well. I will be back and found a great machine on ebay to get me started!
Blessing - 26 November 2023
I had a really great experience on my session. I was able to pick up more knowledge and skills than I'd expected for those 3 hours. I highly recommend and would gladly return. 😊
Burcu - 13 September 2023
I went as a beginner. This was an amazing class! The teacher is friendly, knowledgeable and tailors the class to your level and intetest. Would thoroughly recommend her classes!
Sarah - 23 August 2023
I was a complete beginner, never sat in front of a sewing machine before. Alas, I had the most incredible experience of sewing made easy. In 3 hours, I was able to use the machine and sew. It was an experience I will want to build on. I will be attending more lessons. The tutor is amazing, friendly, kind and above all patient. This for me is a dream come true. Next step: shopping for a sewing machine.

Anjum is a fab teacher
Salma - 8 August 2023
Anjum was incredible, she was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and her studio was a great learning environment. My niece and I loved the 3 hour master class and looking to go back for more lessons with her. I would highly recommend this class.
Sofia Basile - 12 July 2023
Heba has given me the chance of learning new things and especially to challenge myself in something that I always hold on. First time with a sewing machine and I felt quite confident at the end of the lesson. Very simple and clear teaching from her which makes you feel you can actually do what you aim to do. Thanks Heba and you will see me again! 😊
Rebecca - 19 June 2023
Heba provided a fountain of knowledge in a friendly, informal setting. I'm a beginner and was in a class with 2 advanced students but all the help, advice and instruction was perfectly tailored to my needs.
Emily - 2 May 2023
Anjum was an incredible and patient teacher. I got turned around and went to the wrong location, but she was kind when I showed up very late. She managed four different students all at different stages of work with ease and flexibility. This was my first sewing project ever, and I’m so happy with the bag she taught me to make. I recommend this class for anyone at any level of skill. She adjusts the classes for whatever projects you’re working on. Thank you for a wonderful class, Anjum!
Thuy - 9 April 2023
I had an amazing experience with this introduction to sewing class. Anjum contacted me before the class to understand my experience level and my objectives from the class. On the day, Anjum was very keen to make sure to answer or teach anything I asked about, to make sure it was relevant to me. She was so patient and encouraging, I would absolutely recommend this class if you're a nervous beginner like I was. I can't believe I left the class with a completed piece!
Lena - 21 March 2023
My brother and I had an excellent class at Heba Studios. We were made to feel comfortable in the studio and learnt how to make a reversible tote bag alongside some basic mending techniques! We're total beginners but nothing felt out of our reach. The tutor is wonderfully patient and knowledgeable - we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks for a great class.
H - 12 March 2023
Amazing session I knew nothing about sewing before and I learnt how to make a bag, about patterns and hemming and how to use a sewing machine and which kind of sewing machine to get to make projects at home and more. There was another student who was making a dress! It’s for all levels so I totally recommend! Heba is also super lovely and makes the class lots of fun.
Amelia - 17 January 2023
Heba is lovely. Extremely helpful and since there is a maximum of 4 people in the class, she could really take the time to help everyone individually. I learned so much in this class. Definitely a great place to start if you are fairly new to sewing!
Eva - 17 January 2023
Anjum is an excellent teacher with a wealth of experience and infinite patience. I can't stress enough how enjoyable my daughter and I found her lessons. We learnt a lot. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone who wishes to learn how to sew to go to Anjum's classes.
Kasia - 31 December 2022

Hiba studio was amazing. Will defo be thinking about coming back here.

Victoria - 26 July 2022
I loved learning from Heba. She made me feel inspired about sewing again after a bumpy start with my new sewing machine. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and challenged me to try new things supporting me at every step of the way.
Catherine - 17 July 2022
Loved the class. Very good and very useful. Heba is a lovely person and very easy to get along with. Heba has also a lot of experience and has a great knowledge about dressmaking and pattern cutting. Cannot recommend her class high enough. I had a great time and learnt a lot.
Lina - 18 May 2022
The tutor was very knowledgeable and very good at communicating her knowledge of pattern cutting and how to make your own clothes. I had two excellent lessons with this tutor and learnt a lot about sewing . I now feel much more confident with having a go on my own. She is also very friendly and makes excellent tea!
Joanna - 18 May 2022
Very knowledgeable teacher. Will go again.
Marisa - 8 May 2022
This was such an amazing lesson. I am an absolute beginner and Heba was so patient, clear and informative. I had so much fun learning and can't wait to do another lesson with Heba.
Jana Rock - 5 April 2022
Heba Studio is really knowledgeable, patient and professional to get your projects done - no matter if big or small, attention is given to every project... I highly recommend a session to making your projects come true!
Sigrid G. - 11 January 2022
I wanted to learn about the basics and how to use my sewing machine. The class was perfect! Anjum is super nice, super competent, experienced, patient, answered all my questions and explained everything very well. The class is in a well equipped studio in her backyard. Very much recommend!
Angeloumae Bondad - 9 January 2022
Would 1000% recommend!! She is a lovely teacher and you can learn a lot even in just a session. I will definitely be taking more classes with her.
Cassandra - 17 December 2021
I really enjoyed the class! I am a complete beginner but left feeling more confident with a machine and like i'd learned the basics (and the teacher is lovely too). Would definitely recommend :)
Yumi Takano - 15 December 2021
I would highly recommend it! Thanks so much.
Tahmina - 12 December 2021
I’ve had two classes with Heba, and both times she’s been really lovely and accommodating. She’s very knowledgable and has helped boost my confidence and motivation. In my second class I had brought in my own project (a wrap dress) and she helped me fix it with a very clever technique. It’s a very good skill to have and I would recommend anyone who is thinking of getting started. See you again soon :)
Viru Patel - 7 December 2021
She was lovely and so friendly. I thorally enjoy my class. Her teaching was excellent. I will recommend any one to go to her class and learn more. Viru

Eleanor - 26 December 2020
Another excellent sewing class !
Eleanor - 6 December 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever sewing class with Anjum. In 3 hours she taught me how to use a sewing machine and I managed to make 7 bags! I was very happy and will be returning next week to make more. Thank you Anjum for your patience, flexibility and expertise! Highly recommend.
Isra - 5 November 2020
Very useful and a great studio to work in!
Keely - 3 November 2020
I would highly recommend this class! I am a beginner and found it very easy to follow along. The fact that I was able to make a bag at the end of the class says it all! Amazing teacher, with years of experience and very patient. I went with my mum and sister and it was a lovely bonding experience.
Fiona - 21 October 2020
Excellent experience for a first time beginner (thats never used a sewing machine before). I left Heba studio with confidence of how to use a sewing machine and it functions. I look forward to attending another session and developing.
Stavroula - 26 September 2020
Sheila5028 - 10 August 2020
Anjum's classes have been very helpful, hence why I still continue to book classes with her. She's very friendly, knowledgeable and has patience. I have many projects that I wish to complete and master, so I look forward to the future classes and masterpieces I make with Anjum's expertise and direction - Thanks Anjum :-D Sheila x
Hanifah muwaga - 12 March 2020
Was really good and learnt a lot of things, definitely coming back
Ruby - 5 March 2020
Anjum was amazing. She's very good at what she does and you can see she enjoys helping others. This one class has taught me so much already and I'm looking forward to my next class with her this week. I don't feel pressured to finishing quicker than others and she is always making sure we are okay and will show us over and over if we don't get it the first time. Absolutely recommend her for anyone who wants to get into the sewing field. This is a hobby I have wanted to pick up for so long and thanks to Anjum, Im finally doing it :-)
Katherine - 22 December 2019
It was my first time in a Sewing class , she was very kind to offer tea, cookies and make me feel welcome. There were another people in the class and those girls were amazing, we interact very well together so much fun in the class. It was a therapy after all the stress I was passing these weeks . I was looking for something to relax my mind and in the same time learning to do things.
Serena - 15 October 2019
Second class Double the fun!
Serena - 6 October 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed my first class! Heba is very experienced and patient and a lovely teacher!
Maureen - 5 August 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed our lesson with Anjum. I attended this first session with my sister and despite our different levels of experience Anjum tailored the lesson to both our needs. Her studio is well-equipped and a pleasant work space. She is very knowledgeable, patient and an excellent teacher. I look forward to further classes.
Golde - 1 July 2019
I had my first sewing class 18th of last month with Anjum, she was very patient and very clear in how she teaches. So I intend to keep coming to her class to learn more and more. Golde
Susan - 11 June 2019
Anjum has a lovely studio with all the necessary equipment. She was able to help me with a difficult (for me) project. She helped me to work out my complicated pattern and make my dress.. Later she taught me how to edge the neck and sleeves with same stretch fabric. I found Anjum to be a knowledgable and helpful teacher and would definitely recommend her class.
oreos666 - 26 May 2019
Loved the class, Anjum is such a lovely and patient teacher whom explains complex concepts into simple, understandable terms. I was surprised by my own ability to create a tote bag from only one class! Will definitely be coming back for more :).
Fozia - 14 May 2019
Really great class, delivered in Anjum's purpose built studio. I have a little sewing experience and Anjum has helped me with my specific needs and goals.I am looking forward to more lessons.She is a very patient and kind teacher.
Lydia - 8 January 2019
Amazing! Sorry it’s taken me so long to do a review. I felt so welcomed & learnt so much looking forward to coming again this year. Thank you.
Shreya - 10 December 2018
Another great sewing class with Anjum! Made a zipped bag, and already feeling empowered to tackle projects at home with my own machine.
Shreya - 5 December 2018
Another great sewing class with Anjum! In my second class I got to make a small sleeveless top - learning more about linings and how patterns come together. Excited for my next class!
Antonia - 28 November 2018
This class was amaizing, I learnt so much in the space of 3 hours and the teacher was really helpful in advising me what sewing machine to buy and what other classes I can attend. I would recommend this class to anyone who has never used a sewing machine.
Chanelle - 26 November 2018
The class works well for all stages of sewers, absolute beginner, or someone just polishing up on what they know. Everyone gets a generous amount of help and attention, very cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend the class to all sewers and learners.
Shelagh - 25 November 2018
Anjum was very friendly and a great teacher. She was professional and very knowledgeable and I really really enjoyed the class. I highly recommend it!
Shreya - 18 November 2018
Anjum was a great instructor. This was my first time ever using a sewing machine and I finished the class by making a lined tote bag! Already excited for the next class.
Daniela - 16 October 2018
Anjum is a wonderful and very experienced teacher! It was a small class with a lot of attention, I learned about the qualities of a good sewing machine and gained a surprising amount of confidence sewing (and it was my first time ever!). Thank you! I will return!
Michelle - 13 October 2018
Seven weeks and going strong - I just got a sewing machine and overlocker and I'm onto the next project after making a dress and matching scarf in a jersey fabric!
Michelle - 7 October 2018
I'm almost finished my first dress and now have a sewing machine of my own - thanks Anjum, I couldn't have done it without you.
Michelle - 4 October 2018
I'm up to Class 6 and I'm loving every minute. I had never sewed before. I get all my questions answered and help making and learning to make what I'm interested in. Anjum is very creative, capable and supportive. What more could you ask when learning sewing and dressmaking.
Michelle - 28 September 2018
Each class my confidence grows.
Jantien - 23 September 2018
This class was wonderful, we learned how to make a sturdy tote bag with lining on the first class and it seems like once you get the hang of it you are free to work on whatever projects appeal to you/are useful to you. The teacher was really kind and laid-back, a pleasure to spend my morning with her! Will be coming here at least twice a month.
Michelle - 21 September 2018
Class three and I'm feeling super confident with a machine. I know how to put in zips and some hand sewing repairs that were simple and quick including on a bra.
jung - 21 September 2018
She explained every aspects of the sewing machine and this is something that are crucial when learning how to use the machine. she was kind and patient and helpful throughout the session, however the space could have improve a bit better.
Lilian - 20 September 2018
Sewing class was good. One will need more th an one session to learn the basics about sewing machine. Made a nice tote bag on the 1st session.
Michelle - 17 September 2018
Amazing - now I know how to do basic repairs.
Shelina - 16 September 2018
Only had my second class and was able to make a pretty dress for my niece thanks to Anjum! My family were impressed with how much I’ve learnt in such little time. I will be sure to return!
Silvia - 16 September 2018
I truly enjoyed the class. Anjum was very patient and supportive and provided a lot of useful information about how to choose a good sewing machine if you haven't got one yet. Finally, for me this was the first time using a sewing machine and I walked away with a nice tote bag, so I am very happy with this experience, I recommend it!
Susanne - 10 September 2018
Fantastic! I loved this class. The teacher was amazing and so helpful
Michelle - 10 September 2018
It was an awesome experience. I learnt alot, made a tote bag and found the experience tailored to my interest. It's a small place and a working sewing company so you are being taught by women that produce clothes for other businesses. As a beginner it wasn't overwhelming, in fact I had alot of fun.
Kemi - 2 September 2018
This class was amazing! I'd never used a sewing machine before and I was able to make a lovely lined tote bag (materials provided in class). The instructor was very knowledgable and started the class by asking what my goals were. No matter your level of proficiency,an appropriate individualized lesson plan can be made for you. She gave excellent advice on what to look for in a durable sewing machine and what features are unnecessary for a beginner. I've now bought one and my subsequent classes can be taught using my own machine. All in all, this class was fantastic value for money and a lovely way to spend 3 hours.
Shelina - 2 September 2018
Amazing class, I am so glad I booked it. I will be regularly attending the Saturday classes. Anjum was very thorough while learning about the sewing machines and made me feel very confident while sewing my bag. I can’t believe how much I have learnt in just one class! I can’t wait till the next one.
