Karen Hope Jan 2022


We covered everything I needed to know.
Well demonstrated, clearly explained and it was very easy to follow.

Asha Shaw Jan 2022


This was a very informative session and all of my questions were answered and more. I am really happy with what I was shown today. Thank you

Angela Snape Dec 2021


This was a Christmas present from my daughter. I am completely new to sewing. This lesson was amazing. The lady, Steph was very friendly and encouraging throughout the hour. She explained all the features of the machine, demonstrated threading the needle, went through some do's and don'ts and carried out some sewing techniques. Steph also introduced me to the hobbycraft website for useful tutorials and another useful resource. I am looking forward to trying out the basics we went through and hopefully will book another lesson in the New year to move on to the next steps. 10/10. Keep up the online learning.

Sarita Roberts Dec 2021


I booked the workshop for my 13 year old daughter who was wanting some help to get started with using her sewing machine. We were initially booked for a face-to-face workshop but decided to do this online due to covid. Stephie, who was running the workshop was great and gave us lots of hints and tips. I truly recommend the workshop. Doing the workshop online had the added benefit of using our own sewing machine.

Rhiannon Shah Dec 2021


Really good ! Steph was patient and full of good tips - my daughter was home unexpectedly from school which meant i had to juggle a lot at the time. She took the time to look up the manual of my old machine & helped me figure out what was going wrong.

Shara Reedman Nov 2021


Steph was very patient and explained everything I needed to know about my machine at this stage.
I followed along and did my bobbin and threaded my machine followed by some stitching.
It was exactly the introduction I was hoping for.

Norah Dickson Nov 2021


I learned new things. Thank you. Had my question answered. Cant wait for lessons to be ordinary, ie without covid, again.

Alice North Nov 2021


Hi was very helpful it gave us a great introduction to the machine and the instructions were clear. The tutor was friendly and encouraging and professional. Thank you from Alice

Stephanie Foster Nov 2021


Good session, very professional. Connection dropped out my end but teacher was still on which was good.

Linda Bodnieks Nov 2021


I really enjoyed my one hour one-to-one sewing class with Beth at the Telford store today. She was very informative and helped me with free motion embroidery as I am a beginner. Beth gave me encouragement and demonstrated how to do the embroidery with her machine and I was able to copy using my own machine which I found very useful. She gave me good tips and starting points and would definitely book another lesson should I need help with other aspects of using my sewing machine. This class is excellent value and I highly recommend it.

Chloe Ledger Oct 2021


When I booked I was under the impression that it would be in store as they had started again. So a bit disappointed it was online.
Cody was clearly knowledgeable about machines. However I would have preferred to be able to be talked through a small project and have advice as I went along.
Also the lesson was cut short, I felt Cody had had enough after 40 mins. Having saying that he was very good at using the IT with different camera angles etc and it was refreshing to see a youngster enthusiastic about sewing.

Gemma Annies Oct 2021


Brilliant lesson! Steph was lovely. Easy to follow, patient and friendly. Cannot wait to start using my sewing machine!

Zeta Hade Oct 2021


It was a great workshop, very friendly and informative for my daughter to help her with her sewing machine, highly recommended

Lorraine Backshall Oct 2021


I wanted something basic and understandable, which it was.
Answered questions I had and would use workshop again.

Luann Oct 2021


Good tips and advice given. I will now be able to start my project. Thanks

Marie Chesham Oct 2021


Steff was friendly and helpful. As a beginner she went through the basics at my pace and gave me various tips that will enable me to get better results.

Anastasia Munro Oct 2021


The teacher listened and responded well to my requests.I found it far harder on Zoom than in person .
The machine being demonstrated on differed from mine in several significant features.

Linda Costa Sep 2021


I am still a novice. I did this class to make a protege model for cushions ( without the zip one)

I managed to make most of the protege model. So I am pleased I managed that alone.
The teacher did go through via switching camera position.
Explaining using materials and importantly correct measurements and corrected my measurements, as l nearly made a mistake.

The learned a few things about my machine, which the teacher demonstrated on the camera. How to use the lines under my needle to sew the hem size for example.

Quite informative, quite a bit packed into the session. I also managed to look at a Roman blind demonstration with a video session attached for me to look at later

I will probably book again for further sewing courses.
Thank you

Becky Mutch Sep 2021


The session was informative and well-paced, and the tutor was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He explained and demonstrated everything clearly. I got exactly what I'd hoped out of the session and feel ready to get started myself with my first sewing project. I would definitely recommend this tutorial to anyone looking to get started with their sewing machine.

Steph Rees Sep 2021


Getting to know my sewing machine, threading the machine, filling a bobbin. Had tips from instructor. Very enjoyable class.

Sharon Larkworthy Sep 2021


The instructor was prompt, friendly, experienced and helpful and had prepared an example to answer my query.

Linda Tomlinson Sep 2021


I recently took part in a sewing machine class, I found it very informative and my teacher was very patient and helpful aswell as reassuring and a great lady in general. These courses are fantastic and not badly priced either. Would highly recommend them!

Jane Pierce Sep 2021


Koby was really helpful and clear - with plenty of hints and tips as well as talking me through the basics - I wish I had done this sooner, I feel much more confident to start exploring what my sewing machine can do now, thank you!

Judith Wheeler Sep 2021
