Hannah was very patient and her explanation was very clear. A delightful class. Thank you.

Vivien Taylor Jan 2022


Really helpful! Managed my first ever successful buttonhole!
Also learned more about my sewing machine.

Lesley Heath Dec 2021


Beth was very experienced and very friendly too. I learnt so much and it has given me lots of confidence to use my sewing machine. The atmosphere was very relaxed too and I could ask whatever questions I wanted. Thoroughly enjoyed the course, thank you Beth

Jackie Lawton Nov 2021


Camera position did not always allow good view of the sewing.
Alternative ways of making buttonholes was not covered ( different machines/what foot to use)

Debbie Moore Nov 2021


I enjoyed the workshop and found it informative. The only downside was that the camera could not pick up the presenter's actual sewing on his machine and whilst he explained everything that he was doing, it would have been helpful to actually see it being done. The presenter was engaging and I enjoyed his manner of teaching.

Sharon Scully Nov 2021


Absolutely brilliant tutorial with fantastic host. Explained very thoroughly and simply. Camera setup made it really easy to view and follow along.

Another fabulous hour with an Artisan! This time it was Stephy and buttonholes. I was expecting it to be more of a demo to a group but no one else turned up so I had a 1:1. It feels like a crafting hour with a friend Stephy showed me steps and great tips and how to overcome my fear of button holes. I left inspired! Thank you

Mady Nolan Oct 2021

Just what I was looking for! Now I know how to machine sew a button hole.

Diana Allwood Sep 2021


Very good, clear instructions, basic, just what was needed! Steph was friendly and made sure we were happy with each step before moving on to the next one.

Regina Nurney Sep 2021


Steph has took the fear away from the button foot.

I hope I can do it justice

Thank you

Kanthi Silva Sep 2021

Eileen Ross Sep 2021


Steph was super informative and knowledgable.
Learnt a lot, I look forward to more workshops.

Neica Morrow Sep 2021


Loved that I have learnt 3 different ways to do a buttonhole.

While watching I made three styles on my big machine (never worked out before- all failed)
I will be trying a 4 step and free hand on my free motion machine

Rose Hunt Aug 2021


Great lesson! Learnt so much and gave me so much confidence to give such a scary sewing item a go! Keep up the zoom lessons for us full time workers unable to attend in shop classes. Thanks all x x

Deb Nevin Aug 2021


This was a fun friendly session, and I am now confident to sew a button hole, having never done one before the session.

Claire Preston Aug 2021


Really great course. Instructor explained everything well and made it easy for us to follow along. I am no longer scared by the thought of adding button holes!

Elaine Murcott Aug 2021


Very helpful course. Made technique really easy to understand. Online course was ideal and easy to follow.

Andrea Johnson Aug 2021


Really enjoyed it - explained a lot as I had never really understood it before this.

Lesley Walford Aug 2021


Kind and patient teacher, going slowly through each point. Clear instructions, and plenty of time for questions.

Sewing a Buttonhole review by Lesley Walford

Alison Boyd Aug 2021


My sewing machine is a 50 year old Singer (still going strong). So, as I realised what the course was going to demonstrate, I thought it wouldn't be much use to me. However, I did get some useful tips and it has inspired me to do some practising with the machine and buttonhole foot that I have. The teacher also demonstrated how to make a buttonhole without a special foot and this was helpful.
