Carol is a fun and knowledgeable tutor with a relaxed style that completely puts her students at ease. Some of the comments from students on previous courses include:

” Carol is fun, helpful, knowledgeable and supportive. I can’t wait for the next course to begin”

“Loved the classes, learned a lot in terms of sewing and using my machine and I would like to continue”

“I regained my confidence – I hadn’t sewn in decades. We started with the very useful bag to get used to using our own machines again – then we all branched out which certainly rekindled the creativity. The skill and relaxed tutoring of Carol brought everything together and made the classes worthwhile”

We hope you join us!
