I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course over the weekend, despite not quite finishing my chair. I gained a lot of skills and fell more confident about tackling it myself. (We shall see!)

Not only did I enjoy learning new skills, it was a pleasure to meet other like minded people and the friendly, relaxed atmosphere added to the lovely experience. not to forget the chief cook and bottle washer, Steve and his delicious lunch!

I am pretty sure you will see me again sometime on another course, meanwhile I am sure to pass on your details to others. Thoroughly recommended!

Just to say a quick “thank you” for the weekend. I’ve been on a few courses for various things over the years and this was easily the best. Lovely welcome, great tuition, great facilities and fab food! Like I said, you may never get rid of use!

Jenny and I had a great time on the course last week, thank you for all your help and great teaching. I’ve had lots of complements about my chair and I am desperate to get started on my next project.

My thoughts about the week which I spent with you are only positive.   We managed to work on all the basic skills which I had wanted to learn. The course was comprehensive and interesting yet laid back and enjoyable. Food was super too!

I had a brilliant 2 days! I never thought I would learn so much and make so many things. Sylvia was an “amazing” (i used this work a lot over 2 days) teacher.  I look forward to coming back again.

A great course which I would recommend to beginners or experienced sewers alike. The class size is ideal, allowing the teacher to reach everyone – never any time wasted waiting what to do next! Lots of excellent skills leant, giving confidence to try new projects – as a result the quality of work produced is excellent.  Sylvia inspires and is very generous with her knowledge and leaves you able to achieve excellent results. Very enjoyable class and a great atmosphere.
