We can organise 1-to-1 sessions for all ages and abilities...

If a group workshop doesn't suit you then our 1-to-1 sessions could be more your cup of tea. We can cover basic sewing skills or get straight into making specific items such as skirts, tops, fabric animals or bags for both children and adults.

Sessions last between 1 & 2 hours depending on your project. Full tuition will be

given throughout so it doesn't matter how much or how little you currently know. 

Get in touch with what you want to learn - we are super flexible and can normally make a plan around whatever it is that  you want to do, even if its not something thats on our current workshop list.

Such a beautiful shop and really lovely helpful staff, I’m really looking forward to taking up a sewing workshop soon, many thanks 😊
