This list is not exhaustive so if you have any other problem, or just to come along to sew in company, then you’re very welcome. Attend only one, or them all.

You’ll need to bring your own pattern, fabric, matching thread, plus any interfacing, zips/buttons etc which you require to complete your project. Please bring a basic sewing kit of fabric shears, sharp embroidery scissors and pins. You’ll also need a notebook.

The class size comprises no more than 4 students so I can give everyone lots of individual attention, focusing on your own personal project and skill level.

If you’d prefer to make clothes for your children instead of yourself, then you can do this here

Level: Beginners – Experienced

(tuition is personally tailored so you learn at your own skill level and pace) You must be able to use a sewing machine confidently, be comfortable handling and cutting fabric, and be able to sew straight accurate seams. If not, then why not try one of my Beginners classes first to learn these foundation sewing techniques.
