Classes are suitable for all abilities. Check back soon for more details. Alternatively give us a ring and discuss individual classes or one to one tuition. Dressmaking and Quilting classes run continuously. 

All workshops / classes will be run in line with the current Government Guidelines.

BACK TO BASICS

Join us on our back to basic sewing and quilting classes which are suitable for all ages and abilities. Learn Dressmaking, Heirloom, Patchwork and Quilting, Bag making and much, much more, using state of the art equipment, or bring your own favourite machine.

Be creative and sew that extra special dress or make a keepsake for a loved one. We are now seeing a large influx of young people wanting to learn the basics of sewing which is brilliant, so why not join us on one of our workshops.

Both guests and in house tutors are trained to the highest standard and pass on their knowledge in a friendly relaxed way.

DRESSMAKING / SEWING

Learn the basic skills of reading and cutting out a pattern, taking measurements, making a toile, and samples e.g.  seams, pockets, collars, cuffs etc.  Using modern machines and overlockers to construct and finish the garment.
