“I haven’t used my sewing machine for years and was quite nervous about starting again. I needn’t have worried, the course was taken at my pace and there was loads of help from Anne. I’m looking forward to the rest of the training days in the ‘Block’ and have resolved to keep sewing!!”

Sally Johnson, Block a Month

“I booked the Block a Month early this year and it’s been fabulous. I have had loads of help from Anne and the team and feel much more confident in my sewing skills now. Let’s just say a few family members will be getting homemade Christmas presents this year. Next year, I may give embroidery a try!!”
