Whether you want to focus on the actual sewing of a particular project or how to use/get to grips with your own sewing machine, overlocker, coverstitch machine. You may want to look at patterns in more detail, help working through a certain style you can't get your head around, or making that style work for you. We can look at the areas you want to learn more about individually and tailor your time to your exact needs.

Are you new to sewing & not sure whether its for you yet.......? Do you want to try it to see if it's something you enjoy before buying a machine? We can help you do this and can give advice on your perfect starter machine.
