“I had a wonderful day with Lisa from Andrie Designs and the other ladies learning to sew the Cleo Everyday Wallet. The class format made it easy to learn and follow the pattern, but most of all it was a fun day. I will definitely be booking another class with Lisa.” – Jacqui
“Even though I have sewn almost all of the Andrie Designs patterns, I have participated in 2 of Lisa’s bag-making classes, and had a terrific time! She is very understanding of the different ways that people learn, and so rather than taking the group step by step through the pattern like a sew-along, she allows each person to move through at their own pace and offers one-on-one support when required. She is generous with her knowledge and answers all questions with a lot of good humour, patience and the catch-cry ‘trust the process’. 🙂 Of course, this is because her patterns are so well written and easy to follow. For anyone who is looking for an informative, fun day of sewing, I would highly recommend booking into Lisa’s classes if you get the opportunity.” – Paula
“I attended Lisa’s Cleo Wallet class recently at Voodoo Rabbit. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with a lovely bunch of ladies. Lisa stepped me through the pattern and the process step by step and this was a truly wonderful sew. It was amazing how it all came together and at times I was worried and Lisa just told me to ‘trust the process’. It was like magic. I use my wallet everyday and I have received so many compliments. I can definitely see myself making more of these. Thank you Lisa for a lovely day and a great pattern.” – Stacey
