Hello!

Welcome to my workshop page.

I love to teach sewing skills and inspire others to take up this fabulous pastime. Whether you want to sew bags, articles for your home or maybe tackle some clothes making, my Make Your Mother Proud Workshops

are a great way to get you started.

My classes are currently hosted by Clothkits in Chichester, Eclectic Maker in Worthing and Fluffatorium in Dorking so I hope to see you at one these lovely places very soon. Please contact each venue via the link opposite

for availability and bookings.

 

LEARN TO SEW 1

An introduction to sewing on a machine including lots of basic techniques to get you started for a beginners to gain confidence and be inspired. You will learn how to thread a sewing machine, sew seams and hems, make an envelope cushion, learn the art of applique and techniques such as buttonholes.  We also make a lovely lined bag out of gorgeous fabric. 

 

LEARN TO SEW 2

Following on from the first workshop we try out more inspiring techniques such as patchwork, making darts and pleats, gathering, ways to use seam binding, French seams and inserting a zip. We also make a lined zipped pouch bag with tissue holder to take home and impress our friends.

 

Some nice things said about the class by Joan of Worthing

"I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous workshop on Saturday.

I really enjoyed it and as someone who has literally never used

a sewing machine before I was amazed at what I made!!.....

thanks for being such an inspiring and enabling teacher."
