I just spent the most fabulous day with Anita, I am inspired and feel excited to get back into my creative textile work, Anita is an excellent teacher and is a wealth of knowledge about everything to do with sewing, pattern-making and the best ways to construct garments.This day was worth every penny !!! I would say to everyone who is interested in the courses that Anita provides, do not hesitate!! do it today, her whole approach to everything is positive and creative and extremely supportive. I can't wait till i can do another course with her. Cheers Mary-Clare Rooney

26 April 2016 • Corset Patterns - Introductory

It was a great class with easy step by step instructions that you can understand and pick up very easily. The class is also very flexible which you can tailor to the students needs. You get to do more then one corset pattern which really reinforces the concepts. Anita is extremely passionate about what she does and very generous with her tips and advices for the industry. I took a lot out of the classes.
