Dressmaking & Pattern Cutting Classes – your very own ‘Sewing Bee’

All aspects of dressmaking and pattern cutting are covered by a sewing bee workshop.

Join us at the studio or online via Zoom.

Our Sewing Bee workshops are a great way to make stylish clothes that fit and make new friends with a shared passion for sewing.

We can show you how to select the correct pattern size and alter your pattern to get a great fit

You could even try making your own patterns from your body measurements.

It’s entirely up to you!

The Sewing Bee groups at the studio are currently kept to a maximum of 5 students. This group size allows us to meet social distancing requirements within the studio with each student having their own large work space. It will still be  a fun and social sewing session, but individual enough to make sure that everyone gets the guidance they need.

The Sewing Bee groups online are via Zoom.

This is not a course, you just book and pay for the dates that suit you.

We run the Sewing Bee on various weekdays, evenings and Saturdays, which can be booked currently as 2 hour sessions online and 3 or 6 hour sessions at the studio.

2 hour online session via Zoom £10

Half day sessions at the studio £35

Full day sessions at the studio £60
