An account of Marys teaching abilities:
“I had the great pleasure of working along side Mary at our children’s sewing workshop last summer. I also encourage my 8 year old twins to attend Marys class too. Being a keen sewer myself I really wanted my girls to learn the skill and experience the satisfaction I do when I sew, but knew I wouldn’t have the patience to show them.
Mary was fantastic with them, she took them step by step showing and teaching them the basics of the sewing machine, how to cut and use templates and piece together the bunting. It was lovely to see the delight on my girls faces when they showed me what they had made. Simply a must experience for every mother and daughter”. – Amanda, Rural Antics Event Host.
