sewing classes

Although most people want to learn to sew clothes or soft furnishings, our sewing classes are totally open – you have the freedom to learn to sew anything you want! Taught by Leonie you’ll work alongside no more than 7 other sewing students, and might choose to cover such topics as:

  • Dressmaking
  • Patchwork
  • Quilting
  • Appliqué
  • Free-motion embroidery
  • Cushions
  • Piping
  • Bags
  • Bunting
  • Zips
  • Loose covers
  • Plus lots more…

What might you learn to sew?

Our Facebook page shows you what other students have made. During your course, you might work on:

  • A couple of children’s garments
  • keepsake toys
  • One adult garment (or more, if you’re prepared to do homework between classes)
  • A cushion with a zip, piping and appliqué
  • Alterations to a much-loved garment, if you’ve changed dress-size recently.

You might also want to work on understanding how to measure correctly to fit your shape, learning to read a pattern, or gaining top tips on how to achieve a professional shop-bought finish.

      How to book our sewing classes

      Our classes are popular,  so please do plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

      These can be booked as a single 6 week course or a continuous ongoing course. It is  bookable in 6 week blocks, payable in advance. Existing students will be given priority for places before new students can join, and where places are limited and the course is full, new starters may wish to join the waiting list.

      Latest news and last minute availability is also posted on our Facebook page so do LIKE the page so you are kept up to date.

      Please read our booking terms & conditions carefully before booking (they’re only short!). Do also check your advance diary, because any money you’ve paid us can’t be refunded if you discover you’re double-booked.
