Booking private sewing tuition with Leonie means you’ll benefit from expert, personalised teaching and support. You’ll be able to spend longer on things you find challenging and skip over things you already know, so you’ll make really good use of your time.  

How long are the sessions?

Time flies by astonishingly quickly, so 2 hours are the minimum booking for each session. Of course, there’s no limit to the number of sessions you can book.

How much does it cost?

We charge £90 for 2 hours’ private sewing tuition. This is to be paid in full when you book, in advance of your lesson, and our standard booking terms & conditions apply. These sessions are also available via our gift vouchers.

What might you cover?

You can use your private sewing class however you like, but most people need help with:

Specific projects – Why not get 1:1 attention to master a particular sewing skill, or start or finish a specific project? Leonie offers private tuition on a Monday, Tuesday and Saturday morning. She also has the occasional evening slot when her 6-week courses aren’t running. Please just contact us to agree a mutually convenient date.

Dressmaking Many students ask for a private session so they can be measured correctly, and understand about the fitting of bespoke patterns. We’ve met many a frustrated home sewer who just can’t get a garment to fit quite right! This is a great opportunity to amend patterns or hone your skills. You’ll soon build the confidence and skills you need to sew clothes which fit your shape and size perfectly… and with that lovely professional finish.

Getting over a hurdle – It’s easy to get stuck on a sewing project. And if you can’t fix it, you can even end up abandoning the entire thing. Don’t! Leonie will help you get past today’s problem, and therefore equip you to handle it yourself in future should it ever happen again.

Starting a new business – Private tuition with Leonie Pratt is ideal if you want to improve your skills and sell your creations to the paying public. Leonie will help you to understand a shop-bought finish, the commerciality of sewn items, and how to make your dreams become a reality.
