    This course was lead by a lovely woman who was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The course included enough information to tackle most fabric mending required and was well paced to allow us to practice techniques learned. The inclusion of a starter kit for each attendee was wonderful and meant that we were set up to carry on this skill at home. Highly recommend.
