weekly sewing class

Our classes are for anyone learning to sew, also for those of you who wish to enhance and learn skills and socially connect with others. We offer a warm relaxing and happy space. Sewing in a creative atmosphere helping you to improve your mental wellbeing.

Sewing has a number of benefits including reducing stress and anxiety. As you focus your attention on your sewing machine and your sewing project, it helps to take you mind off other things.

Sewing helps to improve your mood as you create something to be proud of. You feel more positive to carry on and sew more things. Making gifts for friends and family and for your home.

Studies have shown that sewing also helps to reduce the risk of dementia by keeping your mind active with a creative hobby.

Come along to a sewing group. Enjoy a friendly relaxed atmosphere, bring your sewing, knitting or crochet and share your knowledge with others. Anything you wish to sew, perhaps an alteration which you never got around to do. Dressmaking, cushion covers, any number of things you can make here.

In the studio we have a large centre cutting table, 10 sewing machines, overlockers and a coverstitch for you to use. There are dress forms as well as inspirational books and craft magazines. We share dressmaking patterns and also have a basket of free ones to browse. See our range of fabrics and haberdashery. We have everything you need to help you get started. 

The sewing groups are £10.00 for 2 hours with refreshments. Each sewing group has 8 or 9 spaces available. With some sewing sessions you can stay over into the next group for 4 hours if we have a space. A longer session is perfect for cutting out and sewing a project together. Also its ideal if you have a longer travel.
