Sewing skills - Level 1

Sewing skills level 1 in Wirral

"All I did was go on the internet and look for Adult Sewing Classes on Wirral. These classes were ideal for me. The short (5 week) intro course was what I needed to get started, and once I'd met the tutor and found out how helpful and supportive she was, it was just natural to progress to do the full Level 1 qualification."

"I now sell things via eBay and my own website, so I'm progressing each week. My aim is to develop a well-established business that enables me to earn a living from the skills I've learned."
