Being relatively new to sewing I recently invested in a new sewing machine. I booked this workshop to give me a chance to start by attempting to make something relatively easy. Erin was very helpful and I came away with a drawstring bag and plenty of additional fabric to practice further - as always thank-you Hobbycraft Solihull
