In addition to my Etsy shop I also offer sewing classes, either on a one-to-one tuition basis or to small groups. I have taught all levels, from absolute beginners who need to know where to start up to experienced sewers who want to focus on a particular skill. Classes are available either at my workshop in Acomb or I can come to you (mileage charged at HMRC standard rate).

With both one-to-one and group tuition you can either pick your subject for a one-off class or choose from one of my “ready made” lessons, which include:

  • Get to know your sewing machine (2 hours, one-to one price £40)
  • Beyond the Basics – sewing techniques for improvers (2 hours, one-to-one price £40)
  • Basic cushions (2 1/2 hours, one-to-one price £50)
  • Perfect pencil skirt (3 hours, one-to-one price £60)
  • A-line skirts (3 hours, one-to-one price £60)

Other topics I have taught include pattern drafting and a series of weekly sessions working through a commercial pattern of the students choice. I am always open to suggestions and requests for lesson topics though, so do get in touch with your ideas!
