I attended the ‘how to use sewing patterns’ workshop on Sunday . Our teacher Jenni was absolutely perfect. She explained everything so well while making it fun. I really learned a lot. I look forward to my other classes. Thx Mattea

Excellent class! This was just the right class for me at my level of skills. I have attempted many patterns and always muddled my way through, however knowing the terminology and key words are definitely going to make it easier for me to understand patterns in the future. The class was delivered in a really easy to understand format and I feel very prepared to tackle my next pattern.

Such a great class, I should have done it sooner in my sewing journey, but still great to learn what things mean in and on the patterns and instructions. This class does focus mainly on modern patterns but it was good to see a vintage pattern, I should have had a closer look though.
