What  attendees have said….

“I did the beginners dressmaking workshop as a refresher as my recent makes had been awful. Great tutorial, all aspects covered from measuring, patterns and sorting fabrics. Inspiring … pinned a pattern to fabric in the afternoon” – Gina

“Having attended a face to face session with Sarah at Made and Making, prior to lockdown, for the beginners guide to getting to know your sewing machine I opted to take part in the online beginners guide to dressmaking and wasn’t disappointed. Sarah is a knowledgeable and informative instructor, who provides an excellent and well constructed class in both formats in a friendly and approachable manner. I look forward to attending more workshops in the future.”

“I have sewn all my life but have still picked up all sorts of useful details and ideas from Sarah. Joining the workshops has been a good way to refresh my skills and gain some inspiration. Thanks Sarah!” – Julie
