My kids attended the Uxbridge Sew a Tote Bag Holiday Programme class – and they loved it! They came home very proud of their beautiful creations. Also, they instantly put their new sewing skills to good use by making back packs and tote bags for their soft toys. Hours of fun! Thanks so much, Gracie Matthews! I’m hoping to send the kids to more of your classes in future.
