WHAT HAVE PEOPLE SAID ABOUT THIS COURSE?
“I did a number of courses with different providers. Fashion antidote was the best, they were the most organised and structured. It really helps when dealing with manufacturers to know the process of how to make shirts, and to evaluate the quality of their work. Fashion Antidote really helped with this.”
“Initially I chose Fashion Antidote because of the locality, however once having attended the course I felt that the course tutor was absolutely fantastic and hence expanded my repertoire of sewing skills.”
