Very enjoyable class, learned techniques that will help when sewing my soft furnishings

I have always been worried about sewing velvet, organza and fabrics with stretch but Monika explained everything very clearly and simply. All materials and equipment were provided. The length of the class was perfect and as numbers were limited, there was plenty time for questions and help. The venue works well. Parking is tricky but there is plenty public transport. There is a cafe on site but for an evening class there are plenty of places nearby for refreshments.
