“I have already recommended this course to a friend!”

(Jill H, Sheffield 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting: Evening Course)

“I have always used commercial patterns previously so had no prior knowledge of drafting my own. Now, I feel confident enough to make the styles I want, rather than the ones you get in shops.”

(Kath D, Walkley, 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting :Evening Course)

“Every week I had some kind of light bulb moment where something I couldn’t understand verbally was illustrated for me visually. Leann is a very adept at adjusting how she delivers information to meet the diverse needs of a group.”

(Aimee, Sheffield, 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting :Evening Course)

“I’ve learnt more in these last few weeks than I did on a year’s course at a local community college. Leann is a consummate professional with years of experience under her belt and a lovely manner to boot.”

(Aimee, Sheffield, 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting :Evening Course)

“I would like to do another course to build on this one now!”

(Anon, Sheffield, 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting :Evening Course)

“Leann is a mine of information and tips. This course surpassed expectations and is very good value for money. I would now like another course to follow on from these sessions.”

(Di, Marlcliffe, 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting :Evening Course)

“I have found cheaper courses before online, but having a ‘real’ teacher is just so much better. I came to this course with no drafting knowledge, and have finished the course with a good understanding. I am very pleased.”

(Anon, Sheffield, 2016, Pattern Drafting & Cutting : Evening Course)

“A really great introductory course and a lovely atmosphere whilst learning.”

(Anon, Nottingham, 2016, Nott Trent University: 5 Day Workshop)

“I honestly learnt more in the first week than I imagined I would in the whole course! Greatly exceeded expectations.”

(Anon, Nottingham, 2016, Nott Trent University: 5 Day Workshop)

“I think I gained more than expected because Leann tailored each session to meet our individual needs. I would like to do a follow-on course if available. It was just brilliant, with excellent teaching.”

(Ann, Nottingham, 2016, Nott Trent University: 5 Day Workshop)

“Thank you so much for all your support and patience. I’m so glad I came to the classes as I genuinely don’t think I could have learned and loved sewing without your help. I’m pretty sure I would’ve got frustrated with it and just never got anywhere near where I have. I’m definitely going to carry on now that I’ve learned so much, and will just keep building on what I have learnt so far.”

(Karen, Sheffield, 2017, Sewing Machine Skills: Evening Course)
