Whether you have your own sewing machine and am a competent sewer or it’s something you are keen to learn and want to pick up the basics, I am here to help teach you with my sewing classes.

No matter how long you’ve been sewing, you might like to boost your creativity and get inspiration from other keen sewers. Or if you’ve never even picked up a needle but have watched the sewing bee and want some help to start. I can advise on all areas. 

Sewing classes are for all levels

Learn how to sew beautiful fabrics in my sewing classes

Join me for my sewing classes on a one-to-one basis or a small group of up to six. Message me for instructions on my hourly or two hourly classes at [email protected]

You are requested to bring your own pattern, fabrics, and haberdasheries, but if you need advice things can be discussed before you arrive for your first sewing class.

If you don’t already have your own machine, I have sewing machines for you to use but I would recommend bringing your own machine as you will get used to utilizing all the fun attachments your machine comes with.

Along with sewing, I am able to teach pattern cutting classes. During one of my pattern cutting classes, you will be able to take your own measurements, draw up your own dress draft and create a pattern to fit your body measurements.
