    Fun and Practical Session


    Enjoyed the intimate session with great instructors, Dan Lin and Hailey, to guide us on how to use the machines. Learnt about some of the sewing techniques such as french seam and cording/piping seam. Creating the hand wristlet is fun and learning how to create it with several steps makes it easy. Very good hands on learning session with knowledgeable instructors. Two thumbs up for this session.
