What people say

To the lovely ladies at the Thrifty Stitcher…I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a great day on Sunday. Have been wanting to delve into the world of sewing for a long time now and am so annoyed I didn’t do it earlier! CL and Alex made it all seem so achievable and fun, unlike my old home economics classes!
Happy stitching! – Sian

Thanks very much – Estelle

Would highly recommend. Teachers have a wealth of knowledge and are very friendly and encouraging. I did the half-day class and got back home and altered a pair of trousers, which I wore out that evening! Plan to go and do another session soon. – Jane

Cannot recommend enough. Tutors had a wealth of knowledge, were super attentive and really nice ladies. Materials were top quality and machines really easy to use. They even followed up the course with an email containing lots of handy info on fabric suppliers to allow us to continue to use our newfound skills. – Kayi

I just wanted to say thank you again for the other day, had a great time and learned a lot. I thought the day was a bit of a bargain considering the knowledge that Cl and Alex have, along with the beautiful materials and booklet (and bunting and tablecloth!). – Hollie x

A brilliant course for anyone wanting to learn how to use a sewing machine for the very first time! The course is well structured and fun. The teachers are extremely friendly, very helpful and take their time to explain everything in detail one on one. I have had a wonderful time learning how to sew a cushion and was delighted to take it home with me at the end of the course! An overall fab day! – Charlotte

Inspiring and an excellent way to get started.

I spent a lovely Sunday at this beginners sewing class and came home inspired to get sewing again. I learnt all the basics to get me started and as there were only six of us in the class- I got lots of personal support from mentors Claire-Louise and Alex. I have already requested a sewing machine for Christmas! I fully recommend this course to all beginners. – Kat

Thank you so much for yesterday, I thought that it was great fun and I was really thrilled to learn so much. It was great to be given everything, to be able to walk in with nothing and be handed everything I needed. Loved having tea and coffee available all day. – Shauna

Highly recommended, a great introductory session. This course was exactly what I was hoping for… a supportive and practical environment in which to build my confidence with a sewing machine, gain some useful tips and spur me on to try some new projects. – Kate

The half day session I attended was really inspiring – I was shown all the basics of setting up the machine and simple stitches, hems etc. Then I made a cushion. It was a lovely morning. – Sarah

The class was absolutely fantastic, it met my expectations and more – I came away with so much new knowledge and so many little hints and tips that you just can’t pick up when you read about sewing in books or on-line. – Leah

I just wanted to say thanks again for the class last week. I’m using my time off work to make some cushion covers for our house. It’s so rewarding to make something myself, so thanks again for giving me the confidence to get back into it. :) – Desi

I really enjoyed meeting you and having the one-to-one lesson. I’m really dying to get stuck in with my tailor’s dummy and some cheap fabric this weekend. Thanks for all the links and useful info too. – Debbie

I wanted to say a huge thank you for today. I really enjoyed learning about the Janome and how to construct the tote bag, which, I might add, I needed later that day! My husband couldn’t quite believe I’d made it all myself! – Jane

Thanks for the fantastic lesson on Saturday. I left the studio buzzing. – Ruth

I had an absolutely amazing time, I think the last time I did something creative like that was art classes in high school. It’s just a few hours of playtime and relaxation and getting back in touch with your feminine side. – Niki

I had an absolute ball on Saturday and have just posted a blog with a picture of my infamous ‘wedding cake topper fascinator! – Sarah

I attended one of these workshops and had a FANTASTIC time. I am not the greatest at crafts, and I came away with a fascinator that I’m truly proud of. The guidance these guys gave was fantastic and I’ll definitely be back for more. – Annelie
