Daytime Sewing Course 2021

Regular price £45.00
Tax included.

Date and Time


With the current covid crisis we are unable to offer regular in house sewing classes. We are however able to offer a mixture of in house classes where you will join us in our Covid safe sewing workshop space and online classes through the online system Zoom. 

An in studio and online sewing course which is designed for sewists of all abilities.

This workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to challenge themselves with the next pattern whether you are a next stage beginner or the more advanced, choose a pattern to suit your skill level (we can assist with this) and let us guide you through. 


The lesson is a free-style lesson with everyone making something diffferent, these are some of the things you may cover in the lesson but it will depend on the pattern you have chosen. 

What you will learn:

Pattern details, tracing techniques, markings and sizing 

The perfect fit, taking guidance from the tutor to advise on fit and pattern adjusting for fit. 

Zips - inserting invisible and exposed zips

Darts, tucks, pleats, gathers


These are just a representation of what you may cover in the class but it will depend on your pattern. 

What you will need:

Sewing machine (we have limited sewing machines so if you need to borrow one please advise at booking stage) 

Sewing kit

Your chosen pattern and all that is needed for this. Please discuss this with us when booking this course. We like to be prepared so an idea of what pattern you are doing before the first workshop would be great

Why choose us?

A small business giving the best customer service


Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
