What Christine Wilson thought after attending the Sewing Basics course...“The Sewing Class was absolutely superb. I was a complete beginner and after six thoroughly enjoyable weeks I feel I’ve achieved so much. I couldn’t wait to come to each class as it was as much a social event as a learning curve, and between the craic and the tea and the treats we all received, it was better treatment that I’d be used to at home”
