What I would highlight: I completed the Level 2 Overlocking course at Sew in Brighton. I thoroughly enjoyed it, Kat was really helpful and patient! The group size was just right, everyone was really friendly. This course is great value for money and perfect for the beginner, I would recommend it to anyone.

What I would highlight: I started out taking the Level 2 Overlocking course. Kat's classes are really carefully thought out and there is always time for some one-on-one time during the class to keep you on the right track. I have picked up so many invaluable tips and tricks along the way and have had an awful lot of fun.I am now currently doing the Pattern Drafting course which is completely different but equally enjoyable and I can't wait for Thursday nights to come round! We've just finished preparing our own skirt block which fits like a glove and have learned how to play with a basic pencil skirt pattern to make all sorts of exciting design features (anything from a-line skirts, pleats, wide waistbands and godets - you'll have to do the course to find out out more!). We're now embarking on designing our very own skirt pattern all ready to sew up at the end of the course.m If you're thinking about giving sewing a try for the very first time or just need some help and guidance with a project don't hesitate to get in touch with Kat and the team. Everyone is so friendly and lovely - you'll have a great time!
