Here’s what our happy students say
I feel embroidery is the closest thing to mediation. I had forgotten how uplifting and relaxing an activity stitching is, this has definitely rekindled my love of the craft. I am in awe of the skill involved in Ekta’s own work now!Janice – London
This is the perfect way to spend mornings exploring stitches, sharing sewing stories and sipping tea. Highly recommended.Chris, Florida.
