Had a fab time making a footstool. Bob has a wealth of knowledge and experience in upholstery and he was a great great tutor to us, explaining everything in a very clear and friendly manner. He was also very committed to making sure all of us completed our projects.

This was a really fantastic course with Bob Lyons who was a great teacher - so patient and helpful. We learned loads of techniques- especially using the curved needle to sew impeccable corners. Thoroughly recommend if you would like to make a beautiful bespoken footstool.

I attended the upholstery course on a Saturday morning for four weeks. Bob, our teacher was professional, knowledgeable and very patient! He was happy to explain tasks numerous times and was reassuring if things went slightly wrong! I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anyone who may be interested. Bob was so generous with his time and my footstool takes pride of place in the lounge receiving total admiration from the family. Marianne Carnegie
