Had a fab time making a footstool. Bob has a wealth of knowledge and experience in upholstery and he was a great great tutor to us, explaining everything in a very clear and friendly manner. He was also very committed to making sure all of us completed our projects.
Vanessa Holmes - October 3rd
This was a really fantastic course with Bob Lyons who was a great teacher - so patient and helpful. We learned loads of techniques- especially using the curved needle to sew impeccable corners. Thoroughly recommend if you would like to make a beautiful bespoken footstool.
