Gemma made contact when she wanted to improve her sewing skills to be able to make her own costumes:
“I just really wanted to share a picture of my very first complete costume!!
Your lessons helped me become confident with my sewing and now I’m really comfortable. I really can’t thank you enough. I owe all my sewing creativity to you! Without your lessons I would never be able to create what I have. I recommend you to anyone that is interested in learning to sew. You’re awesome! Thank you again.”
Tara got in touch after enjoying a Café Sewciety sewing party with friends:
“I made contact with Maria at the beginning of this year in order to schedule some 1-2-1 sewing classes. As a complete novice Maria very patiently and diligently taught me the basics of using my sewing machine. I have been going to Maria now for nearly a year on a fortnightly basis and her lessons are the highlight of my week. I have learnt so much and created some beautiful pieces including lavender filled bunting using Liberty fabric, a sewing machine cover, tissue holders, make up bags, bespoke cushions made for a friends 30th birthday and the list goes on. I can not recommend Maria highly enough for her patience, fantastic teaching skills and inspirational ideas for all my projects. Her studio is absolutely lovely and a great environment to learn in. If you have any doubt about your skills, just go for it as Maria will get you sewing competently before you know it!”
