What students are saying about UsefulBox
I am still buzzing from the calm found at a table with a humming machine.. not to mention your clever and creative mastery and warm authenticity!
What a fantastic lesson !! I am a beginner sewer and booked in my first lesson. Caz was very friendly and welcoming. She explained everything clearly with lots of hands on experience. I have already started recommending lessons to other people.
I gained so much knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm to start sewing my own projects! Caz is a passionate, patient and knowledgeable teacher. She helped me gain an understanding of; how my sewing machine works, how to read patterns and how to problem solve...she certainly equiped me with the tools and confidence I needed to get me started.
If you're after a professional, yet friendly and comfortable atmosphere where you can learn the fundamentals of sewing, Caz is your girl!!
I went to Caz's one day beginners sewing workshop yesterday only ever having switched my sewing machine on to make sure it worked. The workshop was great, I would highly recommend it. Caz really does start from the very beginning, covering the functions of your machine, how to read patterns and different types of stitches/seams.
