Refreshments would have been good. there was water available but we weren't aware of this until later in the day and could have done with a couple of drinks as we were there for 6 hours. Either that, or tell people that they need to bring their own when they book!

Clear your fire exits and tidy up the walk ways downstairs and have some soap and towels in the toilet. I enjoyed it but I was disappointed that the pinafore wasn't a pinafore but a shapeless tube. If you state your making a pinafore or shirt dress as others thought make it. the class was asked at the beginning what their expectations were and we all said the same thing making clothes fit properly. Which in my mind means altering seams and darts etc not making a tube with ties. If it was a basic class for non sewers or those with limited experience it needs to be advertised as such.

while i see the need for a structured format....it lacked creative inspiration. we wasted over an hour on a daft bow when we came looking for sewing skills in upcycling existing clothes. there wasn't enough in the way of recyclable goods to upcycle. not enough thread. too many at the course therefore not enough one2one help. crammed in. hardly any room to sew. machine needed repair. one woman waited 15 minutes for a foot pedal. examples of an upcycled wardrobe would have been more helpful. even in the shop it would have been better to see a variety of garments upcycled.
