1 review for 2 Day Tailoring Workshop – Beginning Tailoring

  1. Jane Van Wyngaarden

    This course exceeded all my expectations and was probably the best value for money thing I have ever done for myself and my craft. If you want to take your sewing to the next level, Jamie is a patient, skilled and excellent teacher. I was amazed by how much I learnt in 2 days and the wealth of information shared.
    The one on one tuition meant that I was able to progress at my own pace and ensure that I was comfortable and confident before progressing to the next step.
    All the supplies, and a few extra niceties, were supplied as well as a take home bag and course notes. I highly recommend this course, you won’t be disappointed!
