Sew School London

Do you have a sewing machine you don’t know how to use? Or maybe you’d really like to buy one but are not sure if you’ll take to it…
Would you like to save money by doing simple alterations yourself?
Perhaps you fancy learning how to make clothes or beautiful things to fill your home!

At Sew School you can learn how to use a sewing machine in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  Sewing machines are provided though you can bring your own if you like. Classes are small to ensure you get all the individual attention you need. It is very important to me that no one feels rushed or unable to ask a question. After attending a Sew School course, I want all my students to feel confident and excited about getting started on a project.


Sew School allows me the greatest pleasure of teaching part-time, alongside my ‘costume’ work and family commitments. It is a small and friendly affair, run from my home in High Barnet.  For me it’s  about passing on a wonderfully rewarding and useful skill, while having lots of fun with other creative people. It’s also lovely to see how sewing can relieve stress and bring a positive focus. I’m extremely proud of my little business and my students, many of whom have been with me for years!
