This went really well. I had never sewn stretch or used an overlocker and I came out with an actual pair of leggings, having had a relaxing time. Craig's teaching style is clear, relaxed and friendly. The workshop is large airy and well-equipped. Great place to sew. I would be very happy to go again.

Although I am an experienced, I am a beginner with sewing Lycra. I not only finished the leggings but learnt lots of helpful tips from Craig for all types of sewing. It has inspired me to be more adventurous and make my own tennis and Pilates gear and not be afraid of stretch fabrics!
