Dear Claire-Louise

Thank you so very much a for a wonderful day on Sunday. I really enjoyed it and was immensely happy with the top you helped me create. Tthe fact that it actually filtted properly gave great pleasure and I have of course learned a whole series of new skills. Most of all I came away with a sense of achievement and now feel both more confident and inspired to continue to sew.

With All Good Wishes, Jane
