“Having completed the ‘foundations’ course, I definitely got the bug for sewing! The alterations course teaches you how to alter clothes, a skill set I’m sure so many of us would love to have when something doesn’t quite fit right in the changing rooms! At the beginning of the course, I have to say I felt slightly overwhelmed with the thought of altering clothing myself. As Arlene talked us through each step, demonstrating along the way, I started to feel more and more confident. Even when I made mistakes, nothing was ever too much trouble and Arlene has so many tricks up her sleeve to ensure you get a perfect finish on your garments.
I came away from this course with a pair of trousers and a top which I both fitted and altered by myself, with supportive guidance from Arlene. I had so much confidence as the course progressed and this was down to the way the course is carefully structured and also Arlene’s patience, experienced tips and constant positivity.
Thank you Arlene, what a wonderful course full of so many sewing skills!”
