Beatrice has been giving sewing lessons to my 8-year-old daughter, and we have both been learning how to sew by hand. Although we haven't started using our new sewing machine yet, we're already enjoying the process. My daughter aspires to be a fashion designer, and learning skills like hand sewing, threading needles, and sewing on buttons is perfect for fine-tuning her motor skills. I'm excited to spend an hour each week exploring this new craft with her and watching her build confidence in herself. It's clear that Beatrice is an excellent teacher, patient and professional, and we are able to connect with her remotely through WhatsApp with ease.

As an adult, I've harbored a desire to learn how to sew but haven't had any prior experience with a sewing machine. Despite this, Beatrice has exhibited immense encouragement and patience towards me. In addition to providing comprehensive knowledge, she has been continuously available to answer my queries outside of our scheduled lessons. She ensures my understanding of the subject by frequently following up and creates a positive atmosphere during our classes. Her benevolent disposition and exceptional teaching skills render her a top-notch tutor whom I would strongly recommend to others.

Aside from being an outstanding educator, Beatrice also boasts of her meticulous sewing skills. As a novice, my aim was to grasp the fundamental concepts of sewing on my personal machine and stitching neatly. Beatrice's adept knowledge of my machine's functionalities enabled her to teach me practical and efficient techniques. In a captivating manner, she displayed sewing methods for me to emulate. I left the session more confident in my sewing skills. I highly recommend Beatrice's services!

Due to Beatrice's unwavering patience, I was able to disassemble my machine entirely and reassemble it independently. This experience has bolstered my sewing prowess and equipped me with the skills to tackle any potential issues. Without hesitation, I would seek her guidance again and urge anyone struggling with sewing or machine set up to do the same.

I'm absolutely thrilled with how our dress 👗 project is turning out, thanks to Beatrice's amazing skills. Here are a few standout moments from our crafting sessions: 🪡 Not only is Beatrice working on her own version of the dress, but she even bought the same pattern as me! 🪡 She gives me a detailed breakdown of the process for each piece, including the materials she's using and the specific pattern she chose. 🪡 Using a dress form allows her to display the dress in a realistic way, and it's incredibly useful for visualizing the final product. Thank you, Beatrice - you're a true treasure!
