Loved the idea of adding a bit of sparkle to my jeans. Tamara had lots of samples to show us and some great ideas for each of our items. I haven't really sewn before but she made it all so easy and had lots of metallic fabrics and threads for us to use. Loved this class :))

A great class. Learnt so much and now have some great things to wear for a lot longer. Lots of tips and tricks shared making me confident to go on adding lots of bling in the future. Tamara was great and she offered a great afternoon tea too!!

Wonderful class. Tamara is an excellent teacher, so patient, with loads of experience and ideas to share. Great value for money as she had so many bits and bobs for us to use on our repairs. I left with confidence to take the skills I learnt further on my own and will definitely being doing another workshop with her.
