I am a complete beginner and Emmy's lessons have really inspired me to continue sewing . I feel like I've learnt so much already , how to add a zip, sew a button hole and how to use a pattern. All this in 3 weeks! Well worth the money ! I recommend this course to anybody who has an interest in sewing.

Emmy is a fantastic teacher. When I started the class I had no sewing skills and in a very short period of time I had made a number of garments and couldn't quite believe I had made these! My confidence has grown as have my sewing skills and this is all down to Emmy. She was patient and explained things really well and demonstrated, which is the best way I learn personally. I can't recommend her enough.

Emmy is a brilliant teacher and one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

The beginners class has exceeded all expectations, after just a few lessons I have learnt many valuable skills and have gained confidence in approaching sewing projects. I'm well on the way to completing my first dress (After just 3 lessons) Emmy is a fantastic tutor, knowledgeable  friendly and great at giving practical examples. The lessons are excellent value and I look forward to joining the intermediate classes :D

Emmy is a brilliant teacher. I couldn't sew at all. I've made tops, bags and I'm now making a dress. She is really patient and extremely fashionable.

Emmy is a very enthusiastic and positive teacher. She is always very keen to give you the time you need (and more) to complete a project. I was a bit fearful about using a sewing machine, due to the technology involved, but Emmy put me at ease with the whole process, and I surprised myself using my sewing machine with a degree of confidence, even after the first lesson. Using a sewing machine has saved me countless hours/days of work, as I have been sewing everything by hand (soft furnishings, coats, jackets, bags, and many other items), over the past 20 years ... I only wish I started earlier! I have done the beginners and intermediate course with Emmy, and am so glad I chose her as my teacher! :-) I will never be grateful enough for her encouragement and patience.

I completed the beginners class earlier this year, and can honestly say it's one of the best skills I have ever learnt! I was treated to a sewing machine for my birthday and had no idea how to even thread the needle! After the first lesson I mastered setting up and using my machine, and by the end of the 6 lessons I'd almost finished making a dress including creating my own pattern, as well as making a bag and a pin cushion! I highly recommend Emmy's class - she's a brilliant teacher and devoted to what she does, and the course was great fun as well as informative and I can now confidently use my sewing machine rather than letting it gather dust! :)

I booked on as a beginner at the start of the year when I was given an old machine and I can honestly say it was the best thing I have ever done. Emmy is the best teacher, always encouraging and inspiring, her love for sewing really shines through. I have come from knowing nothing to completing a pin cushion, bag, 2 summer dresses, 2 duvet covers, 4 pillow cases, bunting!! And my future plans are endless. It's great fun, especially when I'm joined by my best friend and we spend a couple of hours at Emmys workshop not being a wife, mother or worker just being yourself for a while. I really never write reviews but Emmy is great and excellent value for money,you will learn a great skill and meet v. Interesting people and there's nothing better when your daughters stroke your new creation that you made for them and say 'mummy made that'!
