We all like to hear a success story don’t we? Well you’re sure to love this one!

Keli Thompson, one of my regular weekly students, has just launched her own brand of bridal accessories and has already had a number of bridal boutiques approach her to design for them and her exclusive garters have just featured in an exciting wedding shoot for a UK wedding company!

It’s been my pleasure to see Keli progress from a raw beginner to an experienced, confident student in such a relatively short time. It’s one of the reasons I set up the school nearly twenty years ago, the joy of seeing students like Keli grow in skills and confidence. Well done Keli!

Keli’s story

I started with Janet as a complete beginner with no previous sewing experience and have progressed, within two and a half years, to making a bespoke wedding dress and garters that are being sold in a local wedding boutique. It is an absolute dream come true and one that would not have been realised without the help and expertise of Janet. I continue to keep up regular classes because they cater for all levels and abilities and I therefore learn new skills every time I attend.  Please feel free to follow my very new & exciting business venture on:
