Workshop testimonials

Mother and daughter attend class together

My daughter and I attended the 'Getting to know your sewing machine course' which was excellent. We learnt so much and was a great refresher for me. The course was very well organised. Will definitely come back attend another course. Thanks again.

Most enjoyable day

I have had the most enjoyable day with Norma making a small cushion.  Norma talked us through step by step and has now given me the confidence to make a few more cushions at home.  Norma showed us how to measure and make our paper pattern.  I am a beginner at sewing, and was really proud of my finished cushion.


A very pleasant workshop

The tutor (Norma) for the Christmas Bag project was very well prepared for the day and, while keeping  a really relaxed approach, helped us learn new skills and achieve a great outcome!  A very pleasant workshop. I look forward to being able to attend others from time to time.

Fascinator Workshops

Fancy a fascinator? If so, spend some time with Norma at one of her workshops. I had a fantastic day working with her. Norma is a great teacher and unbelievably patient. She offers loads of advice, but does not do your work for you. At the end of the day everyone's work will be their own and different from the person next to you. Thanks Norma, I had loads of fun and friends have admired my work.   



  • Earlier in the year I had the great pleasure to witness Norma working in her studio as part of the Crossing Borders festival. She had on display some amazing creations varying from the traditional wide-brimmed wedding hat to party fascinators, all of which Norma can tailor to meet her clients’ specific needs. Each hat has a wonderful quality and you can see the attention to detail with which each has been created. On meeting Norma you are immediately aware of her passion and eye for style, and her sense of fun. She provides a professional and very personable service in the surroundings of her purpose made studio. I must find an occasion to go to with one of her hats!
