“I highly recommend this course for anyone who has little/no experience or just simply wants a refresher with using a sewing machine. Freda is a wonderful and patient teacher who has helped me to decipher how to use a sewing machine and takes you through the two projects step-by-step. As the course was small in size it meant that Freda was able to go around to everyone and guide you throughout the course. Thank you for such an enjoyable experience Freda!”

“I have just attended the Roman Blind course,  it was brilliant, I was a bit nervous to start but Maebh is the true professional and I relaxed.  We made our own blind so that we would remember each step.  Step by step guidelines were given also.  I have started my own blinds now and I am looking forward to the curtain making course.
I have the sewing bug thanks to Maebh!!”
Paula

“Thank you for an excellent bootcamp in sewing. I last used a sewing machine in my school days, which is over 20 years ago. I couldn’t believe how much we learnt in just two days with easy to following instruction. I would recommended this class to anyone who wants to get back into sewing or just try it out. No equipment needed just yourself. You will enjoy learning new skills and love the sense of achievement that in just in a two days you will have made your own bag and cushion.”
JKeogh

“I always wanted to learn how to sew and how to use a sewing machine. Finally I got a sewing machine last Christmas and I booked my place with Maebh Walsh: beginners Bootcamp, two full saturdays. I must say i had never used a sewing machine before and i left with a tote bag which i made myself… the first day!!!!!!! You start learning all the basics ( believe me, you need to know how the machine works before you touch it!!) and once you know that Maebh guides you and you SEW!!! Maebh makes you feel confortable and is always there to help and clear doubts.
I really, really recommend this Bootcamp Level one for any one interested in getting the basic sewing skills.”
JM

“Taking up sewing was the best thing I ever did. It is more than just a hobby for me – it provides me with the means to gain inner confidence and a skill that is both practical and creatively fulfilling. Thanks to Maebh and Freda for their extraordinary teaching.”
Kay C

“Maebh makes you feel totally comfortable in her class no matter what level you’re at. She guides you through the dress-making process step by step and before you know it you’ve made something you never imagined you would be able to make at the start. It’s a great place to sit down, relax and really enjoy learning how to sew.”
