I just wanted to say a big thank you for a great course on Saturday! I would definitely recommend MSFTT to anyone who wants to learn how to use their machine. I had become very disillusioned with mine and it had sat in the loft for around 25 years but after your course I am feeling very inspired and have definitely bonded with my machine. After the morning session I felt a lot more confident using my machine and then in the afternoon I even surprised myself by making a beautiful book cover. My machine will no longer be kept in the loft and I intend to use it regularly. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you again soon
Thank you Linda for hosting a great day and providing (clinching) a day with a wonderful tutor. One of the best workshops I have attended. Looking at facebook and Saturdays Workshop please please can you put that on again it looks brilliant and please add my name to the attendees list. Thanks again - my creative juices have been kickstarted xxx

Cushion looks good doesn't it?! Thanks again for your help and patience. I made a 12 inch one on Saturday night in the same fabric and in the same way to prove I could do it all by myself so they look great together! Planning to do a bigger one too so might send you another pic of them all!!!
Sarah Isherwood attended Beginner cushion workshop with Linda
I have got to say Linda is the most inspiring, approachable, and happy caring tutor ever!!!! I came out of the course with a whole bunch of new friends, as well as a completed pincushion and I even had a bash at French knots, a daisy and blanket stitch. Linda did a demo of each section, we also had a complete hand out including patterns and stitches. The course was friendly and professional .... Aims and objectives met. A jolly grand day ....

Linda your workshops bring so much pleasure, fun and enjoyment into people’s lives as well as lots of crafting, artistic and sewing skills. You really have brought great joy into my life with re-energising my engagement with my crafting side. The last few weeks I have been surrounded by felt, fabric, yarns, buttons, beads and ribbon.
