Why choose me?

  • My classes are informal and fun. You will relax and get some time out for yourself.
  • It is affordable and the cheapest classes you will find locally.
  • There is no annual membership fee.
  • You can come once, or every week, depending on what you want to learn or achieve.
  • There is no set structure on what you have to sew, you tell me what you would like to make and we will make it! If you need inspiration I have plenty of ideas for you too.
  • I have a stock of fabrics, piping, zippers and threads to get you started.
  • You can also get creative making drum lampshades, noticeboards and chairs as I am also skilled in upholstery, so you can coordinate your sewn curtains with your cushions and your chairs….and  you can say you did it all yourself!
  • This is the only class where you will be able to bring a child from age 5 along to sew on a machine. I believe that your ability to sew has nothing to do with your age! Just look at my daughter’s blog to see proof!
  • You won’t be out of place turning up with your machine still in its box from the shop or covered in dust from Grannies attic! I can help you use that treasured machine and bring it to life!
  • Myself and my husband are CRB checked as we feel it is important for you to feel comfortable leaving your kids with us. If you would like a copy please ask.
  • I have a City and Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

  • If you are unsure stop, take your foot off the pedal and ask!
