    If like me, you have often wondered what all of those unused sewing machine feet that came with your machine are really for then this is the course for you. Kaye organised the day brilliantly; we received clear instructions, tried out lots of different machine feet and found out what all those buttons on your machine actually do. We discovered that those boxes of sewing machine accessories are in fact very useful! This was one of the best workshops I have completed. You finish the day feeling inspired to try out different techniques when making your next garment and wishing you had done this course sooner!
