After school sewing sessions are open to beginning students aged 9 - 12. We'll start with the basics and take it from there!  They will complete a project each month and in the past we have made pillows, bags, hoodies and backpacks. We have sewing machines and all the equipment needed , so students do not need to bring a machine.

All supplies are included unless otherwise noted.

Class size is 4 - 6 students which is small enough to insure lots of personal attention but big enough to have a bit of fun and make new crafty friends.

Classes run monthly and cost £65 for 6 hours of tuition. Download the booking form and bring by the shop with payment to reserve your spot or call and we can take card payment by phone.
