Children’s Workshops

Children’s Sewing Machine Lessons

Does your child have a sewing machine or wants to learn how to sew?  We are currently running small workshops on Saturday mornings for children to learn how to use their sewing machine.  These workshops are kept small (max 5) so that each child gets individual attention and are run by Sarah who has a full DBS check.  Children will make a new project each session and all materials are included in the cost of the class.  So far they have made drawstring bags, Christmas decorations & wallets.

Dates – Last Saturday in the month 24th Jun, 30th September, 28th October & 25th November

Cost £30 per session 10am – 12:00pm

We also offer private sewing machine lessons for children, these can be arranged for an afternoon and last for an hour at a cost of £30.
