Sewing & Dressmaking

 

Dressmaking and Pattern Cutting

Whether you're a beginner who just wants to get some use out of a neglected sewing machine, or an experienced dressmaker wanting to make your own patterns we have classes for you.  We run both structured, taught courses and social sewing evenings where you can bring along your own project. 

One-Off Workshops

We also have a changing series of one-off workshops where you can learn some dressmaking skills and go home with a custom piece for you or someone else in your life.
