Some nice things said about the class by Joan of Worthing

"I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous workshop on Saturday.

I really enjoyed it and as someone who has literally never used

a sewing machine before I was amazed at what I made!!.....

thanks for being such an inspiring and enabling teacher."
