“ LOVED my first experience of the Sewing Shed ! ( Happened to be first workshop post lockdown and all bases had been covered from social distancing , fresh air , hand sanitiser, individual equipment and a reassuring email from Martha about what to expect beforehand. ) The workshop itself was fantastic - I learned so much in the calm, friendly, confidence-building atmosphere and look forward to going back again soon ! “
Hoping to treat myself to another course in not too distant future .
