We have changed the format of our Sew Short Course programme in 2023 to make it more flexible for you. In addition to specific course dates you can now book any of the courses as a Sew Personal session or a shared Sewing Bee workshop. The session is limited to one or two sewers giving you lots of tutor time.

Thank you for tonight’s making a jacket session, I really enjoyed it and learnt lots. I wasn’t sure what to expect sewing remotely but it all worked well. Looking forward to the next one!
