Weekly Sewing

social sewing in Durham

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, cushions covers, any number of things you can make here.

Book one of our sewing groups and be inspired to make something new.

We have a large centre cutting table,12 sewing machines, overlockers, coverstitch and embroidery machines for you to use. There are dress forms as well as inspirational books and craft magazines. See our range of fabrics and haberdashery. We have everything you need to help you get started. 

The sewing groups are £6.50 for 2 hours with refreshments. With some sewing sessions you can stay over into the next group if we have a space. A longer session is perfect for cutting out and sewing together a project especially when you require use of the cutting table.

At the moment we have a maximum of 8 spaces available for each group. Our seating is 1 metre plus apart from others. We sanitise each sewing station between groups. Hand gel is available as you enter the shop and also at our cleaning station. To keep safe and inline with government guidelines we ask you to wear a mask during the sewing session.

We have a pay to book system. As our spaces are limited please don’t turn up without a booking as you may not be able to attend. Always call in advance before you make your journey.

If you have just booked, and within 2 days find out you are unable to make it, please let me know as soon as possible and I can transfer you to another date. If you cancel on the day or don’t attend your reserved place then I’m unable to carry forward your booking.
