Colour and Cloth Ltd5.0 Based on 69 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onanya hannaanya hanna ★★★★★ Just had a one to one class with Christine. It was brilliant! As a complete sewing machine novice I now feel confident enough to do everything from a multitude of different stitch styles on different fabrics to sewing button holes and zips! She taught me all the basics including how to wind on a bobbin, thread up and strip down the machine and tackle most rogue issues!! Brian was brilliant too and had serviced my lovely singer machine that had been sitting in a box for 10 years… since it was bought! I would thoroughly recommend them both! ThankyouLynn AndersonLynn Anderson ★★★★★ I ver much enjoyed my classes with Christine! She's very knowledgeable and able to adapt things when I had problems with my pattern. The small group in the class were a lovely, friendly group of people. I'd thoroughly recommend!OliviaOlivia ★★★★★ I just finished the 7 week beginner's course after a 10 year hiatus from sewing. I absolutely loved it, the classes are intensive but every week from when I entered until when I left Christine's studio it was like entering a time warp! 3 hours felt like 20 minutes as I learnt so many practical sewing skills. Christine is such an inspirational person with her creative projects and she absolutely reignited my love for sewing with her excellent teaching skills, creativity, patience and encouragement. Thank you Christine!RosieRosie ★★★★★ I recently completed the 7-week sewing course at Colour and Cloth, mend and repair, led by the talented instructor Christine. Overall, it was a worthwhile experience that expanded my knowledge and skills in the world of sewing.Christine's expertise in mending and repairing textiles was evident from the start. She shared valuable insights on how to breathe new life into worn-out garments. Her passion for sustainable fashion and the importance of reducing waste resonated throughout the course.Christine's teaching style was clear and concise, making it easy to follow along and understand the intricacies of each method. She provided hands-on demonstrations and offered individualized guidance, ensuring that every participant felt supported and confident in their abilities.The small class size allowed for a collaborative and supportive environment. Sharing ideas and learning from fellow participants added an extra layer of inspiration and motivation. Christine fostered a sense of camaraderie among us, creating a space where we felt comfortable asking questions and seeking feedback from one another.I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in mending and repairing textiles while embracing their creativity.Audrey PalnochAudrey Palnoch ★★★★★ I have attended the Intermediate sewing course with Christine and have learnt so much. I am a self taught sewer and had a lot of bad habits. Christine is such a brilliant teacher she brings the best out of each of us. She is patient and encourages each of us to stretch ourselves but more than that guiding us along the way with her wealth of experience. I thoroughly recommend completing a sewing course with Christine that’s why I’ve signed up for another one!Kathryn McBrideKathryn McBride ★★★★★ Having found Colour & Cloth online, Christine directed me to Brian who kindly overhauled and serviced my lovely treasure of a find: (a beautiful hand crank sewing machine "Sylvia" made by Harrods) and traced the model number back to 1876. The quick turnaround on servicing and knowledge of machines is impressive in itself and Brian's joy on seeing such a machine was obvious.By way of a one to one lesson, Christine took me through the absolute basics of sewing from how to thread "Sylvia" to stitching in various forms. She has also guided me in the best threads and fabrics to use to get the best from this older machine.Christine's knowledge and genuine passion of fabrics and sewing is infectious and her patience with me as the beginner has set me up to find joy in using this lovely instrument.Thank you Brian and Christine.js_loader
