“The one-to-one tuition works very well for someone like me as I was a complete beginner. The course was run in a relaxed but efficient atmosphere. I had all the explanations needed; I was guided and learnt a lot of tips for dressmaking. The length of course was good because I do not have time to get bored or tired!” Joe, Wimbledon

“Very helpful refresher lessons. I feel much more confident using a sewing machine and other sewing equipment. I will recommend the sewing course to my friends. “ Jacqui, Hampton
