I asked Sonia a few questions

.How did you find the tutorial:

I found the tutorial easy to follow.

Each process was explained very clearly.

2.Have you made covers before:

I have made a few covers in the past but have always struggled to achieve a really good fit.

3.Would you do another tutorial:

Absolutely.  I can’t wait to get started on the next tutorial.

4.would you recommend my training methods:

Definitely.

5.what experience do you have in sewing:

I have made lots of curtains, Roman blinds and cushions.

6.do you have a furnishing business, if not would you be tempted to start a business later in the course:

Yes I do have a soft furnishings business.

7. Do you think the tutorials are good value for money compared to other courses:

I do think they are value for money. Years ago I attended a four day course which cost a few hundred pounds. There was only enough time to focus on one chair but I didn’t feel any more confident afterwards.

8.Any other feedback:

I have searched for a loose cover training course a few times over the years without success. The one I attended about twenty odd years ago was about 190 miles away. I’m so excited about doing this course as it looks like it’s going to include quite a few different styles and shapes of furniture. I’ve been asked to make some covers for a Parker Knoll suite which I’ve noticed you are including in one of your tutorials so it should be good timing.

I asked Janet a few questions

1.How did you find the tutorial:

It was so clear, step by step in bite sized pieces. Easy to get your head around and also easy to refer back to for the bits I became unsure of.

2.Have you made covers before

Never! but I see your FREE tutorial and thought I am going to give this a go

3.Would you do another tutorial

Yes I would definitely like to do more I am hooked! I really didn't think it would be so easy to learn 

4.would you recommend my training methods

Yes definitely.... you actually didn’t babble on like some do... it made sense without all the unnecessary chat.

5.what experience do you have in sewing.

I have sewn bits over the years but not a lot of experience I basically learned from school and my mum who was self taught. Mainly clothes & soft furnishings. Just a hobby really.

6.do you have a furnishing business, if not would you be tempted to start a business later in the course.

I don’t have a furnishing business.

I do feel it’s given me the confidence to do more as it was easier than I thought... 

I can see how this could lead on to building a business definitely.

7. Do you think the tutorials are good value for money compared to other courses

I think the price of the course is amazing such value for money!

8.Any other feedback

I would definitely recommend the course especially if you already have a little sewing experience it’s a no brainier! Always thought covers where a specialist area but the way Paul breaks it down it becomes so much clearer how to tackle the process.
