I loved your sewing course and enjoyed learning how to actually use my sewing machine. I have since made 5 large cushions with owls on them- which I gave as Christmas presents last year and everyone loved receiving something homemade.

Highly recommend! A fabulous six weeks spent with CL learning to sew. She's a fantastic and patient teacher, catering to all levels.
I left feeling accomplished and confident to undertake my own projects - saying that I will definitely go back to hone my skills further. Great location and welcoming atmosphere.
