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!

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.
