Does your sewing machine scare you?

Do you wish that you could make clothes and save a bit of money?

Perhaps you have a few sewing skills but lack the confidence or you have a sewing project in mind and need a friendly, knowledge guiding hand?

Maybe you have a creative, energetic fashionistas who would like to unleash their inner Versace? 

I can help you with all of the above and much more. I have an impressive forty years of practical sewing knowledge. I am a current DBS holder, qualified to teach students of all ages, with thirty years experience tutoring children and adults in schools and colleges. My Bespoke sewing sessions are not only a fun, informal way to learn, with sewing tips you would expect from a seasoned practitioner, they are also excellent value for money.

Vouchers are available, valid for three months from date of purchase. These make wonderfully thoughtful birthday, anniversary or Wedding gifts. Currently London based only.

Please note: Private sewing sessions take place in your home with your own sewing machine that must be in full working order.

I can travel to you! If you wish to learn to sew or extend your sewing skills, no matter what age or level, the following options may suit you:

  • Private Sewing lessons tailored to suit your needs and skill level in your own home. You will need your own sewing machine. £85 initial two hour session. £45 per hour thereafter.

  • Book a Bespoke Sewing session for TWO in your own home. Mother and child, best friends or crafty couples - learn to make a cushion cover or a simple tote bag in a fun, informal environment. £120 for a two hour session for two people. You will need access to your own sewing machine to share.

Alternatively you may visit my studio in Catford, South East London and learn to make a tote bag with alone or with a friend! Friday sessions start from November 2019. Classes are for a maximum two people*. Book below:

*Booking solo for my Catford sessions may mean that you will be working with one other student.


School, College and special event workshops in a range of fashion and sewing skills are offered. These can be linked to the curriculum and work towards an event and are available throughout term time or as holiday workshops. Fees on request.
