"Thanks again, for the wonderful Beginners Workshop, I really enjoyed it and learnt so much. I took the cover off the sewing machine that had been sat at the back of my work table for 3 years untouched and discovered I can use it now!  Repaired something that had been waiting a year for me to do.  So really pleased."
