Sophie has been attending classes over the last six months or so and has made a number of garments with me. Her latest project is this stunning tailored jacket in houndstooth check. It’s been a delight to see Sophie progress in skills and confidence over that time. She is an inspiration to others in the class.  Read Sophie’s experience below. 

Sophie’s tailored jacket

‘Before I joined the sewing classes I couldn’t follow a pattern properly or make an item of clothing to fit. Janet has taught me how to do this as well as new skills from inserting a lining to covering buttons with fabric.

‘I am so happy with how the jacket has turned out and amazed with how many positive comments I received’

Our weekly classes are very popular and there is generally a waiting list for places. We also run one day Saturday workshops on the third Saturday of the month, covering all aspects of sewing from beginners to more experienced as well as short courses in tailoring from time to time.
