After many requests over a long time I’ve finally given in!
Starting from Sunday 12th June there will be 2 Sunday time slots available for weekly sewing classes: 10am-12 and 12-2pm.
You can book just one class or both and you can mix and match these sessions with all the other weekly classes (see full timetable here).
These classes will happen on one Sunday per month starting on Sunday 12th June. From July they will run on the 1st Sunday of the month.
Prices are the same as for all the MIY Workshop Sewing and Dressmaking classes, ie. a block of 4 classes for £90, a block of 10 for £195 and single classes at £35. The only difference is that if you want to only do Sunday classes, you must do consecutive Sundays.
As with all other MIY Workshop classes there are only 5 spaces available per class, that means I only have space for 10 people to do regular Sunday classes.
You can work on your own choice of project at the classes and they are open to all levels of ability from absolute beginners to more experienced stitchers. The common theme whatever your ability is that I won’t teach you shortcuts, I’ll teach you how to sew well and I won’t just teach you the standard way to do things that you can find in any sewing book you pick up, I’ll show you my own techniques that I’ve developed over years of sewing and teaching.
I’ve been sewing since I was 12 and pattern cutting since I was 16. I’ve got a 1st class degree in fashion, an MA and a teaching qualification. I spent 7 years working in the fashion industry (read a bit about that here) and I’ve been teaching adults to sew since 2007. I also write a regular column for Love Sewing magazine, my first dressmaking book “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking” which came out in 2014 is a bestseller and my second book “A Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts” will be published this Autumn.
So, you’re in safe hands! I’ll teach you how to sew well and make clothes to be proud of.
But don’t just take my word for it, have a read of what previous students have thought here.
