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!

Anjum has a lovely studio with all the necessary equipment. She was able to help me with a difficult (for me) project. She helped me to work out my complicated pattern and make my dress.. Later she taught me how to edge the neck and sleeves with same stretch fabric. I found Anjum to be a knowledgable and helpful teacher and would definitely recommend her class.

I would highly recommend this class! I am a beginner and found it very easy to follow along. The fact that I was able to make a bag at the end of the class says it all! Amazing teacher, with years of experience and very patient. I went with my mum and sister and it was a lovely bonding experience.

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!

This drop-in session was a really great introduction into understanding how to do measurements and drawing out your own loose fitting block to your size. As these classes are quite short, it is more a basic introduction. Anjum is a very informative, patient and friendly teacher.

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!

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!

The class works well for all stages of sewers, absolute beginner, or someone just polishing up on what they know. Everyone gets a generous amount of help and attention, very cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend the class to all sewers and learners.

This class was amaizing, I learnt so much in the space of 3 hours and the teacher was really helpful in advising me what sewing machine to buy and what other classes I can attend. I would recommend this class to anyone who has never used a sewing machine.

Loved the class, Anjum is such a lovely and patient teacher whom explains complex concepts into simple, understandable terms. I was surprised by my own ability to create a tote bag from only one class! Will definitely be coming back for more :).

Thoroughly enjoyed our lesson with Anjum. I attended this first session with my sister and despite our different levels of experience Anjum tailored the lesson to both our needs. Her studio is well-equipped and a pleasant work space. She is very knowledgeable, patient and an excellent teacher. I look forward to further classes.

It was my first time in a Sewing class , she was very kind to offer tea, cookies and make me feel welcome. There were another people in the class and those girls were amazing, we interact very well together so much fun in the class. It was a therapy after all the stress I was passing these weeks . I was looking for something to relax my mind and in the same time learning to do things.

Anjum was amazing. She's very good at what she does and you can see she enjoys helping others. This one class has taught me so much already and I'm looking forward to my next class with her this week. I don't feel pressured to finishing quicker than others and she is always making sure we are okay and will show us over and over if we don't get it the first time. Absolutely recommend her for anyone who wants to get into the sewing field. This is a hobby I have wanted to pick up for so long and thanks to Anjum, Im finally doing it :-)

Anjum's classes have been very helpful, hence why I still continue to book classes with her. She's very friendly, knowledgeable and has patience. I have many projects that I wish to complete and master, so I look forward to the future classes and masterpieces I make with Anjum's expertise and direction - Thanks Anjum :-D Sheila x

I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever sewing class with Anjum. In 3 hours she taught me how to use a sewing machine and I managed to make 7 bags! I was very happy and will be returning next week to make more. Thank you Anjum for your patience, flexibility and expertise! Highly recommend.

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.

I had a very informative session with Anjum and I will definitely be attending another one of her classes again. Her way of teaching and explaining things ways very easy to understand, which is something I have struggled with in the past when it came to pattern cutting.
