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.

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!

I would like to say that I Have been in Fashion study for a long time. But that it is the first time that I really understand the process of certaint details like Darts, grade ect. The teacher Anjum is so professional and so patient that you don’t feel uncomfortable to ask her some questions again and again If you do not understand straight away.... I will strongly recommend those sewing classes with Anjum the teacher....you will not regret it.🤗

This was my first time learning anything about patternmaking and it was fascinating. Anjum helped us create templates for our own-sized skirt and showed us tricks to modify the skirt's style and shape. Anjum as usual was very patient and engaged!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Definitely a workshop to book onto! Suitable for all abilities. As a novice I was made to feel at ease and taken at my own pace. Anjum has over 25 years experience and it shows. She is patient , clear and concise with explanations and demonstrations. Fantastic workshop.
