I’ve just finished this course and am now really inspired and motivated!! Rachel is patient, understanding of all of your fears and concerns and explains things in such a simple way that it automatically instils confidence. It's been great to spend time with like-minded people who all want to ignite their passion for sewing. This is the best thing I've done for myself in years and there's no other place I would have done it - Craft My Day is a real safe space and I'd recommend it to everybody.

Great course - we learnt how to make a skirt from a pattern including fitting the zip and button. Rachel was very good at explaining things clearly and was also very patient. Would definitely recommend without hesitation to anyone thinking of doing this course. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Craft My Day and will no doubt be booking another course very soon.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and can't wait for the weather so I can show off my skirt. Rachel's enthusiasm is contagious and she has a lovely way of encouraging you to have a go, enjoy and not worry too much. Rachel spends lots of time with each person so the pace, advice and tips are tailored to each person. I would really recommend this course to anyone whether you are a sewing zero or just looking to pick up some confidence. I can't wait to now move on to dresses!!

Rachel was extremely patient and helpful! Definitely an experience worth trying out as while I may not be the best sewing maestro, the vibe of the class, chat and perfectly imperfect skirt made it all worth it. Highly recommend this.

If you are looking for a course where you learn by doing, this will be perfect. Rachel explains step by step everything as you go along, taking time to make sure everyone follows. The course is well designed where after 4 weeks (12hrs) you end up with a tote bag, skirt and lots of practical knowledge. Highly recommend this course to anyone!

Brilliant workshop! Rachel has been lovely and patient ! Perfect to start learning to saw and being proud to wear your "creation" :) We were a group of 4 people and Rachel gave attention to each of us. No time for frustration, just enjoyed seeing the skirt building up weeks after weeks !
