Sewing Classes & Textile Art Workshops.

Learn how to sew, improve your dressmaking, or take a creative textile art workshop or machine embroidery workshop.

Sewing classes are available during daytimes, evenings and weekends. There’s Beginners and refresher classes,  dressmaking courses or shorter 1-day events to focus on specific techniques. Overlockers are a mystery to many so learn how to get the best from yours. Soft furnishing workshops will give you the knowledge and confidence to make your own professional-looking curtains and cushions.

There are sewing classes for children during every school holiday, and an after-school sewing club in term times.

Artisan Stitch won a Certificate of Excellence in January 2019 and is rated ‘best sewing classes in Edinburgh’.


Corona Virus Update

Artisan Stitch  re-opened on 15 July, and is currently running a series of 3-day Summer Schools for Adults. Limited places are available for these and many other events throughout August.

I’m not able to offer my usual summer programme of sewing classes for children but I will endeavor to add some events for budding young sewists in the Autumn.

I’m not able to contact you on an individual basis, but if you’d like to be kept informed of my future news and events, then please sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of the page. To minimise the risk of my communications going to your spam, please add to your contacts list or address book.

Please also keep an eye on my Facebook page as all new events are posted there first and why not join my Facebook community to share sewing tips and chat?

There is ample space in the studio for ‘sewcial’ distancing, and class attendance numbers have been reduced. Please be assured that I’m taking every precaution to ensure visitors to the studio remain safe.

If you have any questions or concerns regard covid, please drop me an e-mail to . Stay safe!

Launching Soon! Artisan Stitch Online

It’s been a while in development but I’m hoping to launch my very first online course. I’ve been told that ‘Virtual Jen’ is better than no Jen at all, so why not try taking an online class?  Or perhaps you live too far away or your weekly schedule doesn’t allow you to attend studio-based classes.  Please sign up for the newsletter or join my Facebook community for further news and introductory offers.
