Sewing is a versatile skill - challenging, therapeutic and useful all at the same time. Sew for yourself, for children, your home or sew for others. Keep it as a hobby or branch out into a new career or education path.

We have a range of courses to suit all abilities and levels of experience from absolute beginners. We also support you making a range of items from bags and dresses to cushions and curtains - enjoy
