Dear Sue,


You are so very kind as to share your knowledge and expertise, let me poke around examining your samples in the sewing tuition studio.


Thank you so very much - what a wonderful day it was when I decided to learn to make curtains, found you, met you, and bit by bit changed my entire focus and direction.


And I found in you not only the most patient and thoughtful teacher, but also a lovely new friend.


Lots of love, Melanie xxx
