From Our students
“Can’t recommend Ginny highly enough ! I attended one of her week long courses 18 months ago and it gave me the kick start I needed to start making soft furnishings for others. I have so many lovely comments from my clients and I know it is because of the way I was taught! I gave up my part time office job in April and can now sew all day and everyday…thank you Ginny x”
“I have now been on two courses; Roman blinds and cushion making. I loved both and was amazed I was able to make professional products after just one day intensive instruction. Comprehensive notes are provided, lunch is wonderful (all home made) and the items you make, you take home. I produced two lovely cushions and my family were amazed I had actually made them! Testament to Ginny’s patience (of a saint) and talent. She puts the most nervous students completely at ease and explains everything with clarity. I loved my two days so much I’ve already booked another course so I can learn how to make curtains. Highly recommended (the only downside – these courses are addictive)”
“My sister and have attended various courses at Ginny Peace Interiors over the past couple of months, and wow, what an enjoyable experience. We’ve learned so much and gained so many new skills. I’m blown away with the samples that we got to take away with us as they’re at such a high standard, even for beginners. Ginny is the perfect tutor, she has a great deal of patience for beginners and I must say, I’m truly inspired by her. She provided a delicious home made lunch every day and really makes you feel welcome and at home. Ginny’s courses are fantastic, I can’t recommend them highly enough considering all the knowledge, skills and beautiful samples that you get to take away with you. A definite 5* rating from me!!”
