    Great introduction to sewing. Small group size and Karen is a great teacher. Patient, common sense approach and funny 🙂 had a great 3 weeks and am now confident using a machine for basic hems, seams and making a few bags. Would definitely recommend the course as a gift or as a treat for yourself, to learn something new and be creative. Thanks Karen!
