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
Today was spent with Sewansome and I had a wonderful day. Learnt lots of new skills and really enjoyed every minute. Magda you are very patient and explain everything so well. Thank you so much.
Beginners sewing workshop
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.
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!
Hello Magda, we love the curtains and pillows you made. It was great to choose the material and leave the rest to you, you did a great job! Thanks
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.
loving my new Sewansome – sewing & alterations in Plymouth curtains with extra black out lining! thank you so much xx
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.
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.
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.
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!
Thank you Magda for the lovely curtains you made for us!
Professional expert service
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!
1-2-1 sewing lesson
Thank you Magda for a great morning. Very helpful for a complete beginner like me. Gave me lots of confidence at using the machine and some great advice. Highly recommend
Fantastic service; Magda was really efficient with communication, has made exactly what I wanted & great price!
Thank you very much for yesterdays workshop. Marion and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We were both a little apprehensive about joining a class, because neither of us had done any dressmaking for a number of years, but we quickly relaxed and felt very comfortable in your lovely spacious workshop. Thank you for your patience and positive attitude. We both wish you all the best in your further studies and will contact you again for any further tuition
1-2-1 sewing lesson
Thanks to Magda for her one to one tuition with my daughter on learning the basics with a sewing machine. She had a great time and learned loads!
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
Thank you Magda so much for altering our roman blinds to fit our new windows. Fantastic, quick and helpful service. I will be coming back to you for the next two blinds.
We had some curtains made; very pleased with the quality and quick service, thank you Magda
We can recommend the work and talents of Magdalena Mrvova without reservation. Magda has worked to satisfy a variety of challenging textile packaging problems with us since June 2014. We know that in principle, many of the requirements we put before Magda are simple, but that in practice, for manufacture, will become complex. Often, we provide Magda with the product(s), an outline description of requirements and an openended commitment that she will determine the best solution; present samples for review and costings for production; we rely upon her skills and have nothing but praise for her work. Our customers set our benchmark and to date, across many designs and hundreds of articles, our externally validated ISO 9001:2015 quality management system evidences nil returns of goods supplied by Magda; a credit to her dedication. Though not essential, it wouldn’t be an honest appreciation if we didn’t also add that working with Magda is always a pleasure; her enthusiasm and spirit are a tonic
Over the six years I have worked with Magda, she has always been helpful and professional. I have done 3 different workshops with her which have given me the confidence to tackle more difficult projects on my own. If I need advice, she is always on the end of the phone. She has made curtains and carried out other alterations to a high standard and very reasonable cost. She is a true gem
Very happy with the alteration on a dress that previously gaped around the armholes. I was confident that Magda would do a perfect job in the way she approached it, taking time to pin various options to improve the fit of my dress before deciding on the most appropriate one. She is also very friendly and welcoming and I won’t hesitate to use her again in the future. In highly recommend this seamstress
I found Magda’s website on the internet. I didn’t read any of the reviews, but contacted her to ask if she would shorten some new eyelet curtains for me. She did an excellent job and only took two days from receiving them to collection. Having now read all the brilliant reviews I decided I must also say how I can highly recommend Magda – and I have never left a review about anything before ! I would certainly go back to her again
My first experience of this delightful couple and both of their companies was with the very proactive to curtain alterations which I needed done accurately, professionally and under a tight time pressure. I was very impressed with Magda’s energy and enthusiasm and ‘can do’ attitude to the request. Fitting me around a number of clients in a busy period my curtains were ready before the date initially suggested and the results were first class in every respect. The job was needed to complete the soft furnishings for our house protect due to be let imminently. We would not hesitate in recommending Sewansome to anyone. If only every business could be this efficient, practical and with such first class customer service
