I am extremely grateful to Magda for making me 2 pairs of very large curtains plus very lengthy pelmet! Good advice was given, and Magda measured-up for the job, and I felt very confident in her ability and knowledge. I was right to - because she has done a very good job of making these curtains for me. She is a most professional and competent woman, and her prices are very good. I recommend her highly. (She even came and hung the curtains for me.....a job that I hate!!!) Looking forward now to going on one of her courses!

Magda did a great job altering my wedding dress, it now fits perfectly. Especially since I called up with 8 weeks to go before the wedding. Great service. x

Beginners workshop

Took the beginner's sewing course as I only have a small amount of sewing experience and wanted to make sure I was getting the basics right. Magda was really friendly and went through everything from the essential tools needed and simple stitches to making a little bag as a project. It was really encouraging to be able to make something in the class and I left feeling a lot more confident. The whole workshop was a lot of fun, I'll definitely be doing another one soon!

Magda made the covers for all the cushions in our lounge. They are perfectly finished and put together. Would certainly return to Magda for further soft furnishings.

Soft Furnishings Course

I learnt so much with Magda on this course.I initially did the sewing basics then straight into the Soft Furnishings Course. Magda soon makes you feel confident and at ease.The teaching is relaxed, friendly, fun and enjoyable. Every question is answered with a clear explanation, I have learnt so much. I love the sample curtain and blind I made. A clear reminder of the skills I have learnt, without the expense of buying metres of fabric. I love my new scatter cushions and can't wait to make more. A really well thought out course. I would highly recommend Sewansome..

When we needed some pretty curtains for Molly, Magda came up with a gorgeous design incorporating Molly’s favourite butterflies and flowers using buttons and embroidery with pom pom edging. It’s gorgeous and really well-made. Highly recomended.

Brilliant course. Great teacher in a lovely environment. I learnt so much and came away with a lovely bag. Will be looking out for more courses as I would like to learn how to do button holes and how to put in zips.

I recently completed a beginners guide to sewing as it has been 20 years since I picked up a machine. After only four hours of tutelage with Magda - I am now planning on finishing some curtains and clearly feel a lot more confident with using a machine. Definitely worth getting in touch to rekindle the basics. Only regret is I wish I had done this sooner. Would have saved a fortune at the dry cleaners. Magda has been great!

I have had a couple of 1to1 lessons with Magda, learning how to use my sewing machine and make cushion covers. Now, I have just completed a 5 week course learning how to make children's clothes. In the five weeks, I have made 2 dresses, a top, a skirt and dungarees! I have had such fun with Magda and gained so much confidence. I can't wait to get started on my own at home and I know Magda is always on the end of the phone if I get stuck! Can't recommend highly enough!

I've been taking private sewing lessons with Magda over the summer in preparation for studying fashion at art college and I can honestly say I could not have picked a better tutor. She is a great teacher; very clear and helpful, friendly and professional and most importantly - patient! Never thought I'd make as much progress as I have, thank you Magda!!!

Thank you Magda, I really enjoyed the beginner workshop today and have already made another little bag for my daughter! It's certainly not perfect but I am determined to keep practising! The material was slightly thicker and the tension seemed a bit better. I would love to do some more workshops. Thanks again.

I attended the Beginners class at the beginning of March and absolutely loved it. It was fantastic to walk away having made something on my machine! Beforehand, I wasn't even threading it properly! Since the class, I've been inspired and enthused to just have a go at some home projects using the stitches and techniques taught. I've made cushions, hooded towels, stuffed toys and even a sleeping bag for my baby. I highly recommend Magda and these classes for anyone wanting to get started or increase their confidence with sewing!

Really enjoyed my dressmaking course. Not used to my borrowed sewing machine and have only really done very basic things before but now I feel much more confident on how to tackle a pattern and buttonholes and I left with a dress I made myself 🙂 really happy

Brilliant course...good speed for an absolute beginner, with great advice on which machine to buy and which materials and needles to use...we made a little bag to take away with us and I now feel very confident that I've got some good basic knowledge to carry on by myself...Will be booking another course very soon...

Absolutely brilliant couple of hours with Magda today...she helped to give me some much needed confidence in my ability to tick learning this skill off my bucket list...learning was at a suitable pace for 3 absolute beginners...we went through which machines were needed for different tasks, along with materials and needles...we then moved on to making a little bag which we could takeaway with us...I will be back for a couple of the other workshops and love the fact that I can fit them in on a weekday or weekend...Fabulush, thank you...xkx

Taken part in the 'knitting course' and now the 'basic sewing machine course' and I am so thankful to Magda for teaching me some new skills, which will prove so useful to me. Very excited to start my new projects and am half-way through a scarf for myself. New-found confidence in something I've always wanted to learn. Would highly recommend both courses xxx 🙂

Magda I thank you very much for the wonderful and very instructive time. Thanks to you I can now implement my creative abilities better. Although I was only a month with you, many have learned. Not many people do an internship abroad and I am very glad that I did internship in your operation. So I have a lot, learned about the craft and the management of a company. Many thanks. I can only recommend the internship to other people. Again many thanks to Magda for a great time with you.

Great workshop, highly recommended. I have always wanted to learn to sew so eventually I treated myself to a Singer sewing machine. Took it to the workshop (still in it's box and wrappings) and came away with a great little bag which I made myself. Looking forward to the next workshop.

Magda is awesome and has taught me so much today. As a self taught sewer I knew I needed some professional help. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. I am now more than confident understanding patterns and the end result today was a beautiful child's summer dress. Thank you Magda 🙂

I attended the beginners class this morning. My aim was to become accustomed to using my machine as I haven't touched one since leaving school! I wanted to use it for sewing my daughters brownie badges onto her hoodie. I absolutely loved the whole session. I now feel more confident and can't wait to have a go with the machine on my own! I'll now consider going back to do the cushion workshop! Thank you very much!

“Thank you Magda for such a lovely morning last Saturday (27/2/16). My daughter and I learnt so much. It was great to do something together, she is 15 and it is a struggle to find something a teenager wants to do with her old mum! We were so proud of the bag we made and my mum (who used to sew all my clothes) was really impressed. Definitely going to book further sessions. Thank you for all your patience and help.”
