Two Days Stuffed With Sewing Tricks And Treats
I had a wonderful two days learning from a generous and talented teacher. The group was small enough for us each to get all the individual help that we needed. I didn't quite finish my trousers but am thrilled to bits with what I have learnt and will be wearing them by next weekend.
Another Value For Money Class. Thank You
This was my second course here and once again it ticked all the boxes. I might still choose not to work with some difficult fabrics however the variety of fabric we used and the techniques we were taught has given me confidence and in future I will have more choice when it comes to patterns, fabric choice, trimmings and seams. Making the leggings was a bonus. Something I wouldn't have thought to do myself but having made them once I would do so again.
Fully Recommend This Course.
I recently attended this course at Mostyn and i found it really interesting, I learnt so much about sewing with stretch fabric, from what needles, threads and fabric to use, (yes i didn't know different threads and needles were used) to what stitch to select on your sewing machine. So all in all a good all round course from start to finish. And at the end of it i had a pair of knickers to take home and wear. You will make mistakes, but Corrie will be there to help you rectify them, and we learn by our mistakes that's what makes us better. I will definitely be booking another course soon.
Attended this class as I struggle for space at home and wanted to make a dress. Celia was brilliantly helpful and supportive. Even though I only got my fabric cut out and interfaced in the session, it's given me the start I needed to sew the dress up at home. Everyone was so lovely. Looking to attend another but there are no more weekend slots. :(
I thoroughly enjoyed myself on the course I attended on 27 April 2019. As well as learning lots of new sewing techniques I came away with loads of extra tips to help improve my dressmaking. I was buzzing with enthusiasm after leaving and within a couple of hours had booked myself onto part 2. Can't wait! Thanks Corrie I had a great day.
