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.

The series of 3-day Summer school courses are the opportunity to really get to grips with a new subject. These intensive courses make a perfect activity holiday for your staycation.

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

Please help me support the sewing community

Besides the studio-based classes I run, I also do a lot of free stuff such as write blogs explaining mysterious secrets like sewing machine tension, or reviews of machines. I also provide an advice and support service by e-mail to anyone who needs it.  Especially now that the covid pandemic has forced the closure of the studio please help me continue to provide this valuable service and buy me a coffee. Your support is greatly appreciated.
