'I liked the addition of the tutor’s own ideas to give me further inspiration. Felt encouraged whilst taking the course as it is a difficult skill. Great class. Thank you.'

'I really like the different designs and ideas you have and the support during the class is excellent.'

'The tutor's feedback was really sweet and encouraging. I am rather ambitious when it comes to technical stitch level so for me it works well to mention things that are not great yet so that I know how to improve them.'

‘Everything was amazing from start to finish, the tutor was very informative and knowledgeable but also extremely kind and helpful. The class was so fun and the space is absolutely beautiful! So light and airy!’
