Testimonials — See what our past students are saying about our sewing classes! 


I recently attended a class (January 28th) for a curtain masterclass. Siobhan was the tutor. Suffice to say I learned exactly what I needed to learn, Siobhan was excellent. Very clear, helpful and patient! We had a nice chat over lunch, discussing all manner of sewing related and craft things. I’m only sorry I don’t have more free time to attend other classes. But if there was a sewing problem I needed help with you would be my first port of call.

Took the beginners class with my sister and we both really enjoyed it. The class was took by Ellie who was great and very patient. It was a small group which made it easier for more one on one help. We all worked at own pace and weren’t rushed or waiting about for the next instructions. My sister knew more than I did but we both still learned a lot and had a great time.

Your sewing classes were super-accessible, not intimidating at all and so much fun. I learned more that I expected, and I’m now confident enough to design my own projects. Hurrah!
— Lindsey Millensby
 
A really great sewing class. Jenny is a very confident and relaxed teacher which helps to make you feel confident and relaxed too. The classes are always friendly and supportive. I learned lots of new skills which has led me to try some trickier stuff at home after the classes ended. I’m really glad I gave it a go!

I attended the Beginners Class in Dundee recently, after not sewing for a number of years.

Jenny is super relaxed & friendly, and, luckily for me, has bags of patience.

I re-learned lots of skills, and I’ve been able to come home with a super grounding in the basics to allow me to tackle more elaborate projects.

Would highly recommend to everyone (and do!!)

The best thing about Jenny’s classes is the chat....no, that’s not entirely true, the best thing about Jenny’s classes is coming away with something each week that I made myself. Jenny’s enthusiasm makes it great fun, and makes it seem easy. I had to be restrained from taking my cushion to work, but I did make my neighbour, the plumber and my boyfriend admire it within 24 hours of completing it, and I’m still lost in admiration every time I see it. And the chat is pretty good too

Great class, fab teacher, easy to understand instructions and really fun! Great way to spend a Sunday learning a new skill in a non-intimidating and totally encouraging environment. Jenny is young and fun and injects this into how she teaches the nearly forgotten skill of using a sewing machine. I have got the sewing bug now!

Jenny is a very patient teacher. She has a lovely, relaxed approach to teaching a subject she is obviously passionate about. As a novice I was a bit intimidated by the technical stuff but Jenny explained and demonstrated everything that we were expected to do, giving “ hints n tips “ to help out. Over the 3 classes our wee group became more confident as we had something to show for our efforts. The class was relaxed and friendly and a lot of fun. I wondered what I’d do on a Saturday afternoon without it and actually wished the course had been longer. I’ve caught the bug and continued to sew. There are a few other classes I’d like to attend but unfortunately the dates or times haven’t suited. Maybe soon..........thanks for the encouragement !

Signing up to Sew Confident was my best ever New Year’s Resolution. Basically, I wanted to learn how to operate a sewing machine....but Jenny taught me how to sew! The classes are relaxed and laid-back, with plenty of one-on-one demos for when you’re stuck and lots of hands on practice, tips and ideas. Best of all is Jenny’s enthusiasm for all things sewing related, which you can’t help but join in with. By the end of the course you have a super cute selection of hand sewn items, a solid working knowledge of sewing on a machine and the confidence to carry on with your new creative skills at home.
— Susan McGinty
I attended one of the beginners courses with no sewing experience whatsoever and following the course, purchased my own sewing machine and have been confidently undertaking projects at home. Jenny is a great teacher and put us all at ease. This led to very relaxing sessions where all questions could be asked and any issues raised so that everyone could get the most out of the sessions.
