"I came along to the 2-day  dress making workshop yesterday & I wanted you to know how brilliant Jacqui was at leading the session. She did a really good job at getting the balance between learning new stuff & also instructing you how to create the dress. Just thought it was worthwhile feeding back as it was exceptional. And I’m wearing the dress today at work ! I’d definitely attend one of Jacqui's sessions in the future."
