I really enjoyed the session and learnt so much! Can’t believe I did a dart and what a difference a little thing like that makes to a garment! (Or even a random bit of material). Mo was great. The whole atmosphere was lovely.

IDC - Emma smocking workshop.jpg

I have been sewing for over 40 years. Having now attended both sewing classes and a couple of workshops at IDC I have discovered that I learn something new every time I am there. So, you can teach an old dog new tricks, make lovely wearable garments and have a good laugh all at the same time! Brilliant!😊 You can also buy most of your sewing requirements from the shop with great support from Laura 😊Very enjoyable smocking workshops, Emma. 😊
