What they say about us:

Thank you so much for teaching me last week.  It was a really fun course and I learnt such a lot.  Anne

October 2017

Thoroughly enjoyed the day on Friday - thank you, Hopefully I will remember everything you taught me (along with the notes) to successfully make another trial one before venturing onto the real thing.

Maggie

September 2017

Thank you, so much, for a brilliant day which went far too fast but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and actually learnt something too!! I do feel confident now to cut into my pile of fabrics and can't wait to get started.

 Helen

I felt a great sense of achievement, when after a day's tuition with Terry Masters of Awaken Hidden Skills, I was able to set off home with a completed sample Roman Blind. It was lined and interlined and made of the prettiest fabric. Terry's delivery was very professional. She was thorough in her approach and kept the momentum going all day. The handouts were well presented and they were easy to refer to, as I did when making a Roman Blind for a paying customer.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Awaken Hidden Skills, it was by far the best course I had attended in a very long time and I'm looking forward to attending another one soon.'

Thank you for a lovely day.  I feel I learned so much from you and you were most generous with your advice.  I will share news of today with some of my friends.

Just a quick mail to say thank you very much for last week.  I had a wonderful week under your expert guidance and look forward to putting my new skills into practice.

Hi Terry
Thank you so much for a helpful and informative day yesterday, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the day and to thank you for lunch.

Thank you Terry, for two interesting days, lots of information and ideas, very helpful.  Will let you know how I get on.

For anyone thinking of attending Terry’s course I would say go for it. Her workroom is warm and welcoming and all the equipment is top notch. I made a Roman Blind with her and her attention to detail is amazing. She talked me through how and where to hang the blind to suit the room and window. It was a complete lesson on the subject but not just on the practical steps of how to make. Her step by step instruction as we constructed the blind was clear and she guided me on every step as she watched and taught. She gave me a bound guide to take home complete with leads to suppliers. She served a delicious lunch and offered snacks and hot and cold drinks throughout. I came home with a made blind, a very good idea of how to make my next blind and her reassurance that I could contact her if I was stuck. It was a lovely day and I would highly recommend her course. I shall return at some point to tackle curtains!

Hi Terry
Just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I enjoyed the course last week. All my family were very impressed with my cushion and lampshade. I have also had a go at making a bin, which I love. Look forward to seeing you soon.   Anne

I have just completed the three day curtain making course and have loved every moment and learnt so much. Terry has been an absolute inspiration and has the patience of a saint! Well worth every penny. I can’t wait to do the Roman blind making day and pelmets. Thank you Terry.  Felicity

Nov 2015

 

I attended the five day curtain making course in September and am so pleased that I did. The tuition was fantastic and with only two other ladies on the course, we all got the attention we needed. Terry is a mind of information and very patient! Will definitely be coming back to do lampshades and cushions. Great value for money and enormous fun.   Keeley

Sept 2015


Very many thanks for giving me so much of your valuable time on Saturday. It was a really enjoyable morning! The lampshades are now all finished and look fabulous!   Sally

May 2015

 

Dear Terry
Thank you so much for the brilliant and informative course on knowing your sewing machine. My daughter and I learned so much about our machines and so many mysteries have been revealed! We had great fun too and came away buzzing to get straight on with a project. We are hooked and definitely coming back to learn to make blinds on our now so well behaved machines.

We have passed your details on to a friend who proposes to come from Devon to improve on her skills too.    Sue and Charlotte

Hi Terry
Thank you so much for my two day private tuition. I learnt so much more than I thought I would and thoroughly enjoyed my time. Excellent and I now feel ready to tackle the curtains in my new home.   Lucy

April 2015

 

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for all your wonderful help and support in teaching me to make lampshades, curtains and roman blinds. I have really enjoyed the course and am so pleased to have learnt new things from something I enjoy so much! Thank you again.   Emma

Nov 2014

Thank you so much for a wonderful day on your cushion course. I came home with my festive cushion and my family couldn't believe I'd made such a lovely cushion.

I felt very relaxed after feeling a little apprehensive at the start of the day, your wonderful teaching and warm personality make me feel at ease and I loved every minute of my day learning from you.

You are a lovely tutor who answered all of my questions and beyond, I would definitely recommend you to friends and colleagues. I will be coming back to do all the other courses you offer.

Thank you again for making me feel so welcome and confident to go on and make my own cushions, I cannot wait to get started. I'd also like to thank you for your hospitality and copious amounts of tea, biscuits, a wonderful lunch and wags from lovely Tilley x



I cannot fault your course, well worth every penny!! Angela Mitchell

Nov 2014

 

Just wanted to thank you for a lovely day yesterday. I came home feeling quite inspired by all your instructions and can't wait to get on with it now! It was really nice to have lunch and would be interested in doing further courses when I finish Bedroom one!

Anyway again many thanks and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Kind regards Liz

Sep 2014

 

Hi Terry,

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course on Saturday. Thank you.

Gosh, it really has opened my eyes; having checked the blinds that I have had made at home; they certainly have not been finished to the same standard - I can see all the stitching on the front face.
Thank you
Hope to see you again soon.    Julie


April 2014

Hi Terry,

Thought you'd like to know that I really enjoyed my day on your Roman blind making course. It was very well organised and the day flowed so well. Not only did you teach us so expertly but your extra snippets of advice and information were great. I enjoyed being in a class of three, not knowing your other two students of course but all there with one goal in mind. I did rather have to curb my competitive spirit and allow Kirsten to romp ahead of me though! A bit of practice and I'm confident I'll sew as quickly as him!!

Do you have space for me on your cushion making course on 3rd March please? Hope so! If so, please put me down for it.

Many thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Liz
February 2014

Hi Terry,

Thank you so much for yesterday. I had such a great day and am so excited to get started on my first set of curtains!! I’ve already ordered lots of samples and look forward to testing out the skills I have learnt. If you would be so kind to send me an invoice, so I could claim back through work that would be great.

I will definitely be coming back soon to learn more.

Take care for now.

Laura

I attended a two day one-to-one course with Terry a couple of weeks ago to learn how to make a roman blind and an interlined double pinch-pleat curtain.
The course was excellently and efficiently delivered with exacting standards, which was exactly what I wanted.

The working environment was clean and organised, lunch was lovely and Terry very hospitable with great conversation.. Very therapeutic!
I have since come away and made another curtain and feel confident enough to attack another 4 sets.
I also feel I could shout if I needed a bit of sense checking before I cut everything up.

Thanks Terry,

Melinda
January 2014

I thought the course was excellent so thank you so much. I've given your details to a couple of friends and may well be back myself in the new year for the curtain course.

Best wishes,

Sarah

Dear Terry
I really enjoyed my half day with you and feel very much re-acquainted with my sewing machine. Apart from all the things you not only reminded of but also taught me about it, it was worth coming to you just for you to tell me my needle needed changing! What a difference that little bit of advice has made!

I would like a place on the roman blind course on Thursday 23rd January 2014 and will forward a booking form.

Many thanks again and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Kind regards,

Liz

Thank you once again for a very enjoyable morning on Friday. I really enjoyed it!

Would you have space for a friend of mine to join us on the 21st September for the cushion making please. Kind regards,

Carol
July 2013

I really enjoyed this morning.  I have now got some confidence to use the machine again.   

Thanks again
Elaine June 2013  

Just a quick email to say how much I enjoyed both parts of the course. I think that I learnt a lot as well as having a break from the minutiae of daily life and doing something completely different! 

We have now finally exchanged on the sale of our house and move out on 12th July. Hopefully, once the dust has settled, I can get on with doing some sewing. I definitely hope to be back to doing one of your cushion courses and perhaps book a ‘refresher day’ with you at some point. In the meantime, I hope that you have a good summer and I’ll be calling you for advice soon!

Thank you so much for a really good week! 

Joanna
June 2013

Thank you so much for a really enjoyable and informative day.  My first project will be my daughter’s bathroom blind and then I’m going to do our study window so will let you know how I get on.   Many thanks again for such a lovely day.

Lynne

Hi Terry,

I thought the course you provided was brilliant; valuable hands on day with a sample blind to take home afterwards. I have used the sample blind coupled with the notes provided to help me make some beautiful blinds. I also liked the food! I will be in touch to talk about another course soon.

Jill
October 2012

Thanks for a great day on your Roman Blind course. I learnt so much in such a short time and came away with the confidence to make two matching striped blinds for my dining room with a very pleasing result.

I found the Roman Blind course so useful that I signed up for the first 2 days of the curtain course and hope to do the rest of that course soon.

Louise
October 2012

Dear Terry,

I can’t thank you enough for the most enjoyable week I spent with you.

My sewing machine had been lying idle in a cupboard for about ten years and now, having finally been shown how to use it properly, it is in full use.

As for the brilliant curtain making course, it’s been invaluable. I now have the confidence to make professional looking curtains and at last my house is beginning to look like a home where before, cold glass stared back at me as the windows remained undressed.

The blinds are a great success and so much better lined, then the ones I had previously made with a rather unsatisfactory kit which never hung properly.

Aside from finding the course immensely useful, indeed I would feel quite confident in offering my skills professionally had I the time, it was as much fun as anything else.

We had a really good time didn’t we? Your lunches were scrumptious and even though I managed to book myself into a course during the only good weather we had all summer, I do not regret it one bit.

Thank you again for organizing such an interesting and fun week.

With very best wishes,

Louise
September 2012

Hi Terry
Just to say a huge thank you for a most enjoyable day on Tuesday. It was such fun and I have come away truly inspired to create lovely cushions! I have already down loaded the price list for Merrick and Day and have been trawling the Internet for all the things I will need to get started!
Thank you for a lovely lunch too. The whole day was brilliant and as soon as I can fit it in, I hope to come back to do the Roman Blind course!

Very many thanks and kind regards.

Diana
September 2012

I really enjoyed the course I attended in August 2012. It was both fun and informative and Terry showed lots of patience whilst offering good advice and ideas. I definitely hope to attend another course soon.

Wendy
August 2012

Thank you for a fantastic course today. I am so pleased with the end result. It was great to chat with you about all your business and learn some great techniques. I would like to come to the curtain making course in the future.

Thank you so much

Kind regards

"I really enjoyed the introduction to new sewing machine course, I have done some sewing before but with my new sewing machine I was excited to see exactly how it works so I can make the most out of it, and I walked away with a cushion cover, very happy! Terry is very patient and helpful to whatever question you may have! I have enjoyed making projects since”

Thank you,

Sophie
June 2012

"I had a fantastic day with Terry learning how to make a roman blind. Having virtually no sewing experience Terry was an extremely clear, patient and entertaining teacher. I was amazed by how much I had learnt in one day and that I was able to produce such a professional looking blind so quickly. It was incredibly satisfying to learn a new skill and one that will save me a great deal of money in the future. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and one that I would not hesitate to recommend."

Clare
July 2012

I just wanted to say thank you for the course on Monday. It was fab! I've also transferred £100 for next Friday's course, so that should be with you very shortly. Have a lovely weekend and see you next week.

Stef Douthwaite – March 2012
 
After much research, the decision was made to attend a five day curtain/roman blind course with the lovely Terry & Sonia, trepidation is not needed as all was at ease when entering the studio. It is with much delight I can now say, what a wonderful week was had, added to this the skills learned will stay with you. On arriving back home my first curtains and  roman blinds were made with many comments as who made them, their fantastic, with delight I answered me. Can you make me a blind, oh and could you do me some of those lined curtains. Try and enjoy, wonderful tutors and a great week.
 
Tracey Ferens – March 2012

 
I found the course very interesting and helpful and your patience certainly enabled me to understand the basics of cushion construction. It was great to learn eventually - after years of wondering - how to make piping properly and how difficult it is to get those corners right! Definitely a day worth doing!
 
Carol Allen – March 2012  

  
I found the course very enlightening. My machine and I are very busy now making cushions galore. The course I attending was Get to know your machine and that’s exactly what is achieved for me.

If it went wrong in the past, I didn't know how to correct it, but now, well, I can tackle it head on and usually get back on track sewing.
I would just like to thank you so much for a very enjoyable morning yesterday. The course was really great and very informative and I now feel confident to have a go at my sewing projects!!!
 
I look forward to be able to book my cushion course very soon.
 
Mandy Jones – January 2012  
 
'I have made many blinds over the years and wondered if it would be worthwhile me attending. I am so pleased I did. My blinds hang in perfect straight lines, no face stitching and straight edges - they look so professional and I understand where I was going wrong all these years. Would absolutely recommend the course'.
 
Julia Matthews – November 2011

"I really enjoyed the course and although I knew quite a lot about sewing Terry taught me so much more that makes curtain making a pleasure to do. My bedroom curtains I draw every morning and evening with such satisfaction knowing that I have made them all by myself. I am very proud of them. We are about to renovate our house and I can't wait to make all the curtains for every room.
 
The day that I spent with Terry was very enjoyable from start to finish. She explained everything clearly and never minded repeating herself if one of us didn't understand it first time! We had a lovely lunch and glass of wine and then carried on for the rest of the afternoon to finish the sample.
I would highly recommend Terry and it is lovely to know she is just an email away if I have any queries about making anything."
 
Janet Gray – Winchester – November 2011
   
Thank you Terry for such a wonderful 2 days on your Interior Design course. I learnt so much and by creating sample boards it really worked putting theory into practice. Following the detailed notes you provided I now feel confident I can interpret ideas and styles to design new schemes. Before I had never really understood the importance of producing scaled drawings of rooms and furniture but, having done this with you, I changed the layout of my lounge as soon as I got home and it really does look so much better!
Thank you again for a great 2 days and I will definitely recommend your courses to my friends and I’m hoping to book on the Roman Blind course very soon.
 
Lynne Green – October 2011

Thanks for a super day on Wednesday. I really enjoyed the course and learnt so much. It was a very relaxing day. I shall keep an eye on your website for other courses - you have inspired me to learn more!
Best wishes

Carole Tidbury July 2011

Hi Terry, I came to one of your Roman Blind making courses in February - I've made 7 for our house so far and they're looking pretty professional, even if I say so myself. Can you let me know the dates for upcoming Cushion making courses?

Sarah Patrick July 2011
 
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the course last Thursday. I learned loads and am now looking at all my creations in a different light!! I am looking forward to getting started on a new project to put my new refined skills into action. Thanks again and I would be interested in a day of the curtain course in Sept / Oct, once the children are back at school.

Kim Postance June 2011  


I would like you to say thank you for a good day in Awakenhiddenskills. I learned so much and you gave me lots of advice. Everything was great. You doing really good work and I am going to recommendation your company. Thanks again for everything. Have a good day

Ladka Sedlakova June 2011

Thank you so much for today. My parents and Andy were so impressed with the crate cover. And Andy especially is very difficult to impress! I was just expecting to come along and refine how to do piping and how to neatly sew bits together - now I have a much simpler, more stylish and I'm sure more cost effective crate cover and also thank you for the supplier details I'll keep in touch and let you know how I'm getting on.

Amanda Rose May 2011

I meant to email you earlier but soon after the course I was down with flu and it took a while to recover. I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed the Blind making course and I am keen to apply those techniques and dress my windows myself. Again many thanks for the really lovely day and for Sonia’s yummy soup and cookies. Hope to see you soon.

Subha Varma March 2011

I decided to try out Terry and Sonya's Awaken Hidden Skills courses that I have been promoting over the last few months. I knew Terry and Sonya wouldn't do anything by halves but my goodness what a brilliant time I had. As usual, I was greedy and wasn't happy to settle for one sitting but instead Sue and I booked two days as soon as we realised we got lunch included!!!

As the Monday drew near, I became a little worried about my lack of skills with anything to do with fabric and sewing. It became clear, very early on that Sue had hidden her light under a bushel (does ANYONE know what that expression actually means?) and I was the absolute beginner. However, from the minute we stepped in, we were made to feel welcome, showered with THE most delicious homemade biscuits and encouraged to drink gallons of tea - I soon forgot those nerves.  
 
On Monday, I made a Roman blind - and you cannot see any stitch marks on the front!!! - so there!

On Tuesday, the fabric I chose which looked a bit dull in the early morning light, turned into the most amazing cushion by the late afternoon and I did it all. Of course, Terry guided both Sue and I through days, being understanding, kind and very smiley throughout. In addition, we didn't have to take a packed lunch but Sonya rustled up (mid teaching us to do complicated sewing stuff) two amazing two course lunches. I'm an awkward customer who doesn't 'do' carbs but she managed two brilliant meals included in the cost of the course plus a glass of wine each day, which I managed to force down! I was far too polite to accept a second, although it was offered.

These were well structured courses and we were given one to one tuition, guided through every step of the process and given instructions and lots of useful information to take away for future reference. I suspect copious amounts of alcohol were imbibed after Sue and I left because I think we may have been challenging! I just cannot recommend more highly.

Lanie Allen March 2011

 I’ve really enjoyed working with the materials and now feel confident to make my Roman Blind for home. Structured day and great support on the days. Lovely lunch and biscuits. Thank you.
 
Sue Watts March 2011
 
Just a quick note to thank you so very much for the course, it was exactly what I was looking for. Terry you explained each step very clearly and opened my eyes to a variety of window treatments and accessories I had never used interlining before, it certainly adds to the finish and I've now mastered the 'interlocking' stitch as well...brilliant... I thought the method of delivery and the pace were just right and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere all week. Sonya, your home baked lunches were superb...such a treat, as were the delicious biscuits at tea breaks. I will certainly recommend your courses to family and friends and wish you every success for the future. Thanks so very much
 
Morag Parsons March 2011
 
I wanted to say thank you for making the course last week such a success. I really enjoyed it and feel very pleased with my sample curtains, blind and pelmet. They may be mini sized but they look professional and most importantly I made them myself! I showed my efforts to my team at work and they seemed genuinely impressed with what I'd done in five days. I'm going to do a roman blind for my parents and there's also a possibility of me making some curtains for a friend who is moving house soon. Thanks again for passing on your knowledge of curtains and blinds so well and also for the lovely lunches. I'll no doubt see you around Inkpen at some point!
 
Helen Hall March 2011
 
I really enjoyed the sewing machine course and have been busily practising ‘going in a straight line’!!! I’m looking forward to Roman Blinds on 7 Mar. I’ve sent a cheque being the balance due which you should receive shortly by post. Kind Regards
 
Becky Adamson March 2011  
 
Fantastic teaching –wonderful notes to take home. Not to mention lunch and biscuits. Thank you!
 
Hattie Gallagher February 2011
 
 Just a note to say how much I enjoyed yesterdays short sewing machine course with you and Sonya, it was a fun group. I will book into the Roman Blind course on line. Many thanks once again
 
Sarah Anderson January 2011  
 
Just a quick note mainly to say how much I enjoyed doing the roman blind course and thank you very much - it really was excellent (and good to focus my mind on something constructive)! I will be back in touch soon about doing the sewing machine course, once I have looked into childcare for Tommy. In the meantime, can you possibly remind me where you would recommend I buy basic sewing things from: besides materials to make up the actual blinds, I need to get kitted out with needles, scissors, unpickers, rulers etc. Thanks again and best regards
 
Harriet Burnage November 2010
 
You are stars! The level of teaching was high class! Thank you very much – I enjoyed every minute of the course. It gave me lots of confidence and there was a great sense of satisfaction at the end of it!
 
Julianna Lally November 2010

Dear Terry and Sonya Just a brief note to say how much I enjoyed the 'Roman Blind Course' yesterday. It has now fired me with enthusiasm to make some of my own! The whole day was nicely balanced, with sufficient input to make it worthwhile without it being too exhausting! The midday meal was wonderful - a very pleasant interlude. I shall certainly be recommending you to friends, and may consider another course in the not- too-distant future. Thanks again.
 
Madeleine Jenkins November 2010
 
Dear Terry, Thank you once again for such a great day and a great course! I forgot to ask if would mind sending me a receipt and for the last course too if you wouldn’t mind. I hope your business continues to thrive and I'm sure I'll be back at some point! Take care
 
Vicky Eighteen October 2010
 
An excellent week’s course, which I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt a lot from. A very friendly atmosphere which made me feel very relaxed, and would make me come back again. Fabulous lunches. Terry is an excellent teacher who clearly knows what she is teaching and is able to provide an insight into the business world
 
Lynne Patrick September 2010
 
I just wanted to thank you both for the course on the 16th. I haven’t stopped telling all of my friends about your courses. I’ve since had a good rummage in some fabric shops and picked up some gorgeous remnants –need to do something with them now! Thank you again, I’m just worried you might have sparked a whole new interest. There are going to be cushions everywhere… Hope to see you again on another course
 
Sarah Bromham July 2010
 
Dear Terry and Sonya, The girls are positively bubbling after their course yesterday! I think they all enjoyed the whole experience and have learnt a great deal. The samples look very professional. Thank you. I’m sure that what they learnt yesterday will help them not only at work on both the trade and retail sides, but also at home. Also a good “ team building ” exercise. (Lisa did mention that you know a company that covers buttons, would you be able to forward details please?) Thanks again
 
Helen Sanderson July 2010
 
Thank you so much for a wonderful week of training and fabulous food! Everything has far exceeded our expectations and we have enjoyed every moment. We wish you every success with Awakenhiddenskills and look forward to coming back soon for more courses.
 
Tasha and Madeleine July 2010
 
Thank you so much for a lovely day. Hope I can do it again sometime

Hiliary Briggs July 2010
 
Thank you for a very enjoyable day yesterday. You made us all feel very welcome and looked after us so well! We feel we have gained more confidence to enable us to assist customers with their curtain requirements. We wish you every success with your future courses and look forward to seeing you again soon.
 
Helen, Mary, Karen and Lisa July 2010
 
Thank you for a wonderful day, great tuition, requiring plenty of concentration, having a delicious lunch and being very pleased with the results! We all learnt so much.
 
Caroline Prout July 2010
 
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Roman Blind course I attended recently. It was lovely to be able to learn a new skill in such a relaxing environment. The delicious lunch was an added bonus. Not only did I make my own sample blind but I also learnt lots of useful tips to make future sewing easier. Armed with my course notes and sample blind for reference, I am now making a Roman Blind for the bathroom. I hope this will be the first of many projects. Thank you both for such an inspiring and fun day. Best regards
 
Angela McLeish July 2010
 
Since I spent the day with you making roman blinds I have made one for my daughters’ bedroom, it looks fantastic. I really enjoyed the day.
 
Alison Tarrant May 2010
 
Just a line to thank you for a terrific roman blind course on Wednesday. It was amazing to think that I could make a blind in one day and gain enough confidence to go off and make more on my own – which I intend to do this week. The course is perfect in every way, but I would single out the amount of information which Terry manages to impart during the day, the materials you provide to take away, the positive and practical approach (so different from my memory of needlework lessons!), your ability to accommodate delegates of all ranges of skill and experience, and of course, the fantastic home cooked food, as particular highlights. Apart from being so useful it was a really fun day in excellent company! Thanks again – I have already recommended it to others and hope to return for curtain making when I have made some blinds.
 
Sarah Godwin June 2010
 
I would like to say a huge thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend your curtain making course. I really enjoyed the day and I gained huge satisfaction from being able to achieve something that quite frankly I never thought would be possible. Lunch was delicious! I will be recommending you to lots of my friends and family over the coming weeks and I wish you every success in your new venture.
 
Jo McLeish May 2010  
 
I attended the Roman Blind course and had a fantastic day. By actually making a sample blind whilst being taught at the same time really helped me understand where I had gone wrong in the past. We were able to take away pre-prepared course notes which will help when I make my own. Also, the small numbers enabled us all to get the individual attention that we needed. The whole day had a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We stopped halfway for a very enjoyable lunch too and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Thank you!
 
Julia Fielder May 2010  
 
Awaken Hidden Skills offered me the course that I have been searching for; I have to say I was a little nervous as courses always remind me of school! This however was totally the opposite, friendly, informal, lots of fun and at the same time very professional. I came away with a full understanding of how to make a Roman Blind as we made a complete, fully functional miniature version during the course of the day; this gave me the confidence to get started on my own. Terry and Sonya made the day really enjoyable and I would definitely attend another course, I would highly recommend you give it a go! Take your friends!  Oh...The homemade cakes, fresh tea and coffee followed by a lovely lunch added a special touch to the day! Thanks Guys!
