“Leonie is the fountain of all knowledge with a vast array of skills, she brings together people of all levels from beginner to intermediate (from cushions to tweed jackets) with all different sewing projects in a calm friendly environment. Leonie is able to instil confidence and adapt to each individual’s needs answering each need or resolving our queries immediately and with extensive knowledge and the correct process/ way to do things or options to choose of ways to do things. The classes have given me confidence to move on to more complicated projects that I wouldn’t have dreamed of creating before I came!” Mandy, Menston.“The Sewing Shed is a lovely space – everyone has enough room but it’s also cosy enough to talk, exchange ideas, chat and develop new friendships based on a common interest in sewing and craft whatever level you’re at. Leonie is fabulous at always being welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable but also having a lovely light touch – she has a really good sense of when to let me get on with things when I think I know what I’m doing, but always being willing and ready to step in if I ask for help but she is able to see when I need a bit more direction/know-how etc. Leonie has achieved an ideal balance of professionalism and approachability and the classes have definitely exceeded my expectations in terms of making sewing fun and enjoyable, thank you!” Emma, Ilkley.
