I was one of the bosom buddies who attended the week-end bra making class. We were off mixed ages, from 20's to70's and probably mixed ability although non of us would be classed as beginners. Michelle was an amusing and attentive tutor and never made anyone feel that they were a nuisance asking questions or working at a slower rate. We all felt that what one would think was a difficult task was not really when you listened and followed Michelle's instructions. Overall a very convivial and instructive week-end.

I want to say how much I enjoyed the ‘skirts, bustles and bows’ course yesterday. For the first time afterwards I really felt that I might actually be able to create wedding dresses. Your training facilities are excellent, very comfortable and with every requirement for equipment and materials anticipated. It was super to use such a sophisticated sewing machine and to receive training from such a friendly and knowledgeable trainer.

I remember you saying that you would like to see photos of our efforts after attending your bra-making course. Since Lorrie and I got home I have been sewing like mad, you are right it is very addictive! As you can see I have found the power bar style best for me, the first blue one has since been dismantled as it didn’t fit properly, and the green/multi one doesn’t fit as it was an experiment with non-stretch and easily frayed fabric but I like the end result so have kept it. The gold one is made with some left over stretch fabric found at the bottom of my box and the black/grey one is from fabric bought in Leicester market. As you can see I have lots of different laces, if you remember I said I had got some from a charity shop, I hadn’t looked at it for years but found I had a crate full of samples from a French lace maker which no longer exists so far as I can see, Desseilles of Calais, and it dates from the early 90’s but is in perfect condition and mostly stretch…I knew it would come in useful one day! My technique is improving with each bra and they are all being worn, except the green one, and I am now doing more sewing than unpicking!! The sample pieces we did on the second day are invaluable and I refer to the power bar one every time just to remind me what goes where. Thank-you, the course was wonderful and it is great to know that I never need buy a bra again.
