    Such a fun and helpful workshop! Becca was a great instructor – patient, supportive and full of helpful hints and tricks to produce a better quality garment. I learnt to sew my first garment on an overlocker and was thrilled with the result! This has definitely encouraged me to use my overlocker for more than just finishing raw edges and I’m no longer scared of changing threads on my overlocker. Definitely a class for all sewers!
