4 Week Beginner Course

I have done the first two weeks and so far have made a cushion cover and some bunting. Lucy and Katie are lovely and really helpful. The studio is bright and spacious and there are lots of great fabrics to choose from. Nothing is beyond the ability of a beginner. The instructions are really clear and if you're stuck, Lucy is only too happy to help. I'm looking forward to making matching wash bags on Wednesday. Really good value for money too.
