I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Recycled Textile Embroidery workshop. The 5 hours went so fast as I was totally engrossed. Amy was very generous with her time and patient with a newcomer like myself. I also have to say that I found the venue, UsefulBox sewing school, a really nice set up. Well spaced out, comfortable and friendly.
