I really enjoyed the Sewing basics course and learned a lot of skills which I feel I can now implement, including zips, using patterns, and understanding some important points related to fabric and techniques. We had two different instructors over the three weeks, who were both really easy to understand, very helpful, and started right on time. I highly recommend this course.

I'd never sewn before, this class was a great introduction. I was expecting not to sew anything useful, but even in the first class you sew something real that's useable! Teachers are also really understanding and helpful.

I can't recommend this course enough! I came in with absolutely no understanding of how a sewing machine worked and very little confidence in my ability to produce anything. But I came out of it with a solid basic understanding of pattern cutting, how to place my fabric, preparing the machine and amending settings to produce different seams, sewing in a zipper, making corners and more. I know that I would be able to rely on these skills at home and I've got three awesome items to show for our hard work! Finally, our teachers were fantastic: patient, well organised and dynamic. Thanks again!
