    A great course taught by a lady with an infinite amount of patience. The only downside to this course is now my husband keeps asking when I am starting on his shirt wardrobe!
    I learnt so many new techniques on this course. Well worth the money and highly recommended.
    Thank you Aneka.

    I attended the shirt making course and learnt to make a perfectly fitted shirt for my partner. This course teaches you how to adjust and amend your pattern pieces to gain the perfect fit. I also learnt several different sewing techniques and now have the confidence to make more shirts and other clothes. Aneka is very patient, approachable and a very knowledgeable tutor. This course has inspired me to want to do more!

    If anyone is interested in learning how to make a shirt, regardless of their ability in sewing, I highly recommend this course. I’ve just began learning sewing earlier this year so I decided to try the shirtmaking course. Despite my lack of experience I was able to make a good quality fitted shirt due to Aneka’s patience and teaching skills. I was able to learn very complex techniques, and was taught different ways of putting a shirt together in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I’m looking forward to my next sewing course.
