What our students are saying:

"I have been attending the pattern making class on a Wednesday evening. Learning to make clothes that will fit me. Class members are a fun group and Jan (Tutor) provides us with lots of inside tips to make our clothes not look home made. I am loving this course and looking forward to Term 2. Wednesday nights are something I look forward to. Thank you Jan.",Kim
