When my mother saw my top that I had made she commented – ” The top is just gorgeous – you must have fantastic teacher “.
While I was thinking to myself that I was the one that made it – and there was no compliment for me…..lol….
Ann’s classes are first rate and I have learnt so much from her. I would much prefer to be sewing than having to go to work through the week.
I wonder how I can make that happen !!! ????. Jen S.
Great classes. This lady certainly knows what she is doing as I have learnt so much about making a pattern from just one task. I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for me. I am excited !!!! Maggie B
Fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere to learn expert sewing methods from the best in the industry. Rita H
When I first spoke to Ann on the phone I said to my husband George – ” she is so nice”. Originally I trained as a pattern maker/production manager so I am attending classes with Ann who is updating my skills and challenging me far beyond what I thought possible.
The best thing I have done in along time – its been great to be able to sew from a patterm. Justine K.
Ann is very patient and at times very funny – very good for a beginner who is anxious. Amanda B.
Ann has guided me from complete novice to creating my first garment in just a few lessons. I have made my very own pyjama pants, and my wife is very impressed. I’ve been taught everything from threading a machine and the different stitches to cutting out patterns and fabric, pressing and stitching and hemming. Next to make is a shirt and after that I might make something for my wife, who is worried I might get better at sewing than she is!
Thank you Ann for teaching me skills that I can use for a lifetime. I can’t wait for the classes each week. Norma VDM
My expectations were certainly met when I enrolled for the Pattern Making Classes at Designer Stitch. So much so that I am now attending my fourth year at the school. Thank you for your exceptional teaching. Lisa B.
Being an absolute beginner I didn’t know what to expect – and I am so pleased to be a member of Ann’s classes. I have learnt so much and still learning. Faith O.
I just love coming to my sewing class each week. I have learnt heaps since I started in 2013 and I have gained so much confidence. Even my husband has said that he is a “sewing widow”. Sharon H.
What fantastic classes !!!! I have just finished my first skirt and I couldn’t be happier.
I just love coming each week !!!!!! Judi D.
My sewing classes are warm and fun and I learn something each week – and I have 2 hours of uninterrupted time without my 3 children hanging off me. Just bliss. Jacinta C.
I have gained so much confidence on my machine. I know don’t approach it with as much trepidation. Thanks for your patience. Jean McC.
