Social Sewing: £25

Morning session, 10-1, Thursdays and Fridays

I’m excited to say that Needleswift classes are coming back! Following the trauma of the last year where all the fun stuff stopped, from 17th May I’ll be allowed to welcome you back into my home sewing space. Book your spot below!

For everyone’s comfort in a post-pandemic world, there will be a maximum of 3 students at each session.

With the Social Sewing sessions I aim for as much flexibility as possible. For £25 you can come along for a 3 hour sewing session. Bring any project you like, apart from very large projects like curtains and blinds. If you don’t have a project in mind you’re welcome to ask for advice: I have some simple patterns ready to go, such as a tote bag, zipped pouches, apron or fabric box caddy. Give me as much notice as you can as some patterns will need printing (a charge of £3 accompanies this). Another simple beginner project is bunting: this is a great way to use up fabric scraps.

Complete beginners are welcome to come to Social Sewing to learn the basics. When you book it’s a great idea to email me to let me know a bit about your skill level, and what you’d like to sew.

Current favourites with students are dressmaking, quilting, home accessories and furnishings. Gather inspiration from other people’s work and make some new sewing friends. You can even buy selected supplies from me, including interfacing, thermolam, bag straps and some bag hardware – check in advance if there is something special you need.

You may bring your own sewing machine, or use one of the machines here. Please mention when booking if you would like to borrow a sewing machine.

Note: Classes will go ahead as long as there are at least two students. If I need to cancel because of low attendance on a particular date, you will be refunded, or have the option to switch dates.

If you need to cancel a booking, please give me as much notice as possible. With two weeks notice I will happily offer a refund. With less, I will refund only if I can fill the space.

The payment system I use is basic Paypal, so you’ll receive email confirmation from Paypal. If you have any problems just email me. If you’d rather pay by bank transfer please contact me for details.

To secure your place please make a Paypal payment below. You can email to discuss your project or make any specific requests.
