Testimonials

Beginner sewing course
”If you are feeling your skill base is too low, don’t be put off. Gaye is a great teacher, and the small class sizes and close tutoring will get you started. The items we made in class were small scale but detailed enough to push one’s learning to a satisfying degree. The atmosphere in class is focussed but friendly, and supportive. Gaye is very generous with her time, her amazing expertise and experience, and her upcycling philosophy will appeal to many in this day and age of waste and landfills. I can highly recommend these classes. My limited experience of just one set of four classes also showed the value of the small group as a learning environment. Our ages ranged from upper school age to senior – and our shared focus made it a great experience. “

Mother and daughter private lesson
Our private lesson with Gaye was filled with laughter, curiosity and hard work. We hemmed clothes and made a cushion and a wallet. Gaye was a generous and wonderful teacher!

Beginners Sewing Course
I am a beginner sewer, I have been for years so I was looking at a way to increase my knowledge & start to see more. Gaye’s beginners sewing class was fantastic. Not only do you learn the basics but you actually make complete projects. The learning space is perfect & working with other students creates a lovely collaborative environment. I am ready to sign up for the next level & I am looking forward to developing my skills with Gaye. Such a great experience.

Sewing Machine Basics Workshop
It was so satisfying not only learning the basics but actually having something to take home and show off. I was a total novice but Gaye didn’t make me feel silly…she talked and walked me through every aspect, from the names of the components on the machine to the mathematical equations of working out a pattern. I have more confidence now and am excited to learn more advanced techniques in the future.

Private Lesson
“I discovered Gaye and her sewing lessons just when I needed them. Her lessons provided me with the knowledge and confidence to undertake my own sewing project. Gaye also shared her ideas and connections with me to ensure that I could take that project to the next level.”

thank you for such a wonderful day. It is the first time that I’ve sewed a piece of clothing and it was truly satisfying. I found your teaching really helpful, and you created a lovely and supportive environment. Vicky and I will certainly be back.
