I love the idea of this cafe, so quirky and sweet! I booked the intro to dressmaking course which was teaching you how to use a pattern (something I've never done). Firstly I was told the wrong time (i had email confirming the time) so I got there an hour late which I received no apology, also I was told that the patterns go upto a size 20 so being a size 18 I thought I will be ok but I had to pay an extra £15 for the pattern to be adjusted because it didn't fit and this was in ear shot of the whole class.....I was humiliated!! lovely idea shame about my experience :(
Sew Over It

Independent stitchers can drop in and sew at this informal sewing café, where machines can be hired for £5 an hour (including a pot of tea). For clueless crafters, there are a host of classes ranging from the broad – an introduction to sewing, for example – to specific workshops where you can learn how to make a pair of knickers, a make-up bag, or even a ’50s dress.
