I have just completed making my super bag at the SEW-In run by Martha at the Sewing Shed Stroud. Due to the COVID - 19 all the classes where held via Zoom, which worked out extremely well, with Martha being able to guide us. We were still able to connect to each other and see other work in progress. This was the first time I had attempted to undertake any kind of patchwork. Despite the absence of physical face-to-face contact, all instructions from Martha via Zoom worked really well and I am delighted with my bag and have already signed-up for another set of Zoom classes.
