To say I’ve had an amazing experience would be an understatement. Thank you very much for everything you’ve taught me and for your kind hospitality during the past week. I’ve learnt so much, met some amazing ladies, and feel so inspired after taking your course. I cannot wait to apply what I’ve learnt to make beautiful soft furnishings and to start my own business
