Such a professional and fun learning environment. Genuinely helpful teachers who strive to make every session a fruitful one, no matter your level. I started to join this class to have some company and inspiration whilst sewing and straight off the bat, in my first class, I picked up sooo many useful hints and tips that has changed everything for me. I'm feeling more motivated now than ever. Will be back for more!
