Yesterday I did a 'Intro to Pants' workshop. I can make pants, but they never fit well. I walked away with a pair that fitted perfectly. The teacher Jenny is a gorgeous human being with a truck load of talent and experience. She helped me learn without making me feel stupid and she also shared wonderful tidbits to help putting together any garment easier. The space is great. Plenty of table space, lots of light and it is clean. I wanted for nothing and there was nothing I thought could have been better about the day. I highly recommend this place. There are plenty of workshops. Get yourself on their mailing list. Classes are small, so plenty of opportunity for 1:1 to help you through any issues. - Jacqueline

I cannot recommend this course highly enough! I have been in tears over not being able to buy or make pants that fit my unique shape. Today I went home in pants with the best fit ever! Plus tips for tweaking the fit that would give a silhouette and proportions i might prefer - marked onto my pattern!! Everyone in the class had perfect fitting pants by the end of the day. Thank you Jenny, and my class mates, for a great day xx
