I have attended the sewing machine driver's licence class and the beginner's crochet. Both are fabulous. The venue is wonderful and Claire is so helpful and lovely.

I have been wanting to learn crochet for a while but could not pick it up from the internet. I took the beginner crochet course and am amazed how much I can do from this. The groups are small so it is easy to follow the steps Claire is showing. She is very patient and knows how to help you... More

After years of trying and failing to learn crochet booked a class with Claire. It was a small friendly class. Clare is a patient teacher and quickly had us all trying out the stitches and by the end we were able to combine 3 stitches to produce a beautiful crochet flower. Already booked onto intermediate class :)

Apart from really enjoyed attending BTHQ, I gained confidence in my sewing skills and was able to finish sewing a dress in a day. You get given the pattern, and I have since attempted to make the dress again and was successful in doing so. The setting is very calm and relaxed, If anyone is interested in learning to sew,...

I've just got back from my Patchwork Santa Sack class I attended today and had to write a review straight away! I had so much fun. The classes are very small, with around 4 people to a class, so Claire is always able to help when you get into difficulty, and is able to spread herself around easily. The machines... More

Hadn"t used a sewing machine since school (over 37 years ago) Claire covered so many aspects of using the sewing machine on her free starter course. It gave me the confidence to want to learn more. Now booked with her a four session course to make various items. Can"t wait I have now got the sewing bug. May it continue.

I found this when trying to get back into sewing and had a taster class, I enjoyed it enough to book onto a class making esperdrilles. I really enjoyed the day and everyone was so friendly, really gave me the bug to get back into my hobbies! I'm definitely going to book back for some more of the classes. Handy... More

I attended one of the sewing machines for newbies or those who wanted to pick up the thread from close encounters of an earlier era. Patience, good humour and sound advice abounded and Claire was quite good as well..... (just kidding she had us in stitches really). So thoroughly recommend.

I took part in a free sewing machine license course with Beautiful Things. It takes you through the basics of setting up your sewing machine, the various stitches and their purposes and sewing a seam and a square. Courses take place in a really nice, well equipped environment and the tuition was excellent. It's a great way to get a... More
