'It was a marvelous week! Maaike's teaching is excellent. She patiently explains every step, always helped when it was necessary and let us share here wealth of experience gladly and a lot, so that I not only went home with a really beautiful jacket, but also inspired and in anticipation of new projects. Everyone who wants to learn challenging sewing is in the best hands with this course and with Maaike.'
