Jules Robinson learned to sew at Cotton Club 6 years ago, when she could only thread a machine & sew in a straight line.

Attending our thursday night class for 5 months, she learned quickly and picked up the vital skills needed to teach others. 
Since then she has been on a great journey learning new techniques and is now in her 4th year of teaching the girls on a Saturday morningand also teaches the Thursday evening adult class.
Jules has always worked with children and young adults, and she is currently a trainee teacher so is able to bring her day job skills to Saturday mornings.
She enjoys teaching & watching people's skills and self confidence grow. Taking great pride in passing the skills that she has learnt at Cotton Club onto others.
