Meet Your Sewing Instructor

Sew, socialise and sip plenty of tea...

Am I addicted to sewing?

Yes, but not as much as teaching it!

I have a passion to share my skills and thinking to inspire others. Whether you are NEW to sewing or you've been sewing for years, I guarantee  you'll love these classes!

Why did I start these classes?

I have an interior designer background mixed with over 15 years of being a tutor/instructor in craft. I wanted to create a local indie craft class worth talking about! I've designed these sewing classes to be small, sociable and help you think / design / sew your ideas. 

Why do I love sewing?

Sewing gives you a sense of nostalgia and memory-making. You can produce handmade keepsakes and personalised gifts to give.

And at the end of each sewing project, I get excited what I just made...


Sewing is much more than just quilting and dressmaking. I teach people how to think, design and create personalised gifts, toys, home decor, accessories, dress-making, quilting, free-motion embroidery and more... 

You'll enjoy these creative sewing classes no matter what your skill level!
