  1. Tanya

    I feel much more confident about attempting basic repairs on my clothes and also feel like I could develop my skills. The workshop was really great for getting a sense of sewing and some basic skills. Plus I now have attached my missing button and fixed the hem on a favourite skirt!

  2. Tracey

    Kavitha’s workshop was fun, practical and informative. Although I have been sewing for some time, I learnt some great basic tips and left the workshop wanting to sew more.

  3. Ahine

    It was a treat receiving a workshop from someone that’s so knowledgeable. Kavitha really takes the time to explain each step, so if you’re a complete beginner like myself, you won’t get lost. She was also observant of who was falling behind and made sure to give them some 1-1 help, which is great.

  4. Liz

    Kavitha was a knowledgeable course leader. We covered 3 topics – hemming, sewing a button and mending a seam tear. I feel that I learnt a lot in the two hours and would highly recommend Kavitha and the course. I’m looking forward to the next one.

  5. Fran

    This workshop was amazing. I learned how to mend clothes in three different ways and I was surprised by how easy and fun it was. The instructor was very professional and supportive. She taught us how to use different tools and materials and how to be creative with our mending. I feel more confident and inspired to mend my own clothes now. This workshop is a must for anyone who cares about the environment and their wardrobe.
