    I attended the make an A-Line Skirt class last Sunday and it was very enjoyable. Sarah is an excellent teacher with a lot of patience and she explained every process clearly. The skirt pattern we used is a classic style and I was very pleased at how well my finished skirt fitted.
    I learnt a lot and have more confidence now, thanks to Sarah. I love my finished skirt and now I know how to make it, I will be making more.
    There is a great atmosphere at the Craft Studio and I would recommend these classes to anyone.

    Thank you Lisa for making Sunday so interesting. Had a great time and even at my age managed to learn something new. Such a comfortable place to be, almost felt as if I were at home.
    Thanks again Lyn

    I had an amazing day. It felt like I was sewing with friends. Lisa was a great teacher very patient and helped me learn a lot and I got to bring a fantastic skirt home. I am now inspired to make more clothes for myself, thanks you.

    After having finished the 5 weeks sewing for fun course I thought it was time for a new challenge and I signed up for the ‘make an A-line skirt’ class.
    Not only did I learn how to read a pattern, I actually made my first skirt with a zip, waistband and everything! I am very pleased with the result and can’t wait to make more skirts.
    If you want to pick up sewing or sign up for semi-advanced and advanced classes The Craft Studio offers a variety of courses in a creative and relaxed atmosphere. Look no further. Tuition is great and the tutors are very patient. I can only recommend!

    I came on the A-line skirt day with some work friends. We had such a fab day, and have had such nice feedback from colleagues about our creations. I certainly have felt more confident since doing the course and have made several skirts now too! Looking forward to coming on another soon.

    Another great course. And the skirt patterns used had a number of options so you could pick a style the style that suited you best. I can now also read a clothes pattern and understand what they are asking!

    I attended the day where we were learning to make an A line skirt. I attended with a couple of friends and we had a fabulous day out. We learn’t loads of excellent dressmaking skills and had the expert tuition to help us through the process. I would never have attempted dress making before this day. The first day i wore my skirt i had many admiring comments about where i had brought my skirt from. It gave me such pleasure to be able to say i had made it myself (with a very big head!!!) Thank you
