Sewing Classes

Dressmaking and pattern cutting classes for adults.

I have been teaching fashion related subjects in adult education since 2006.  I have the following City & Guilds qualifications:

Level 2 Soft Furnishings & Additional Soft Furnishings

Level 2 Tailoring

Level 2 Lingerie

Level 2 Corsetry

Level 3 Certificate Fashion

Level 3 Diploma Fashion

as well as Level 2 & 3 Certificate teaching qualifications in the Lifelong Learning Sector. I sew everyday for myself & two daughters as well as friends.


Sunday sewing classes are informal, perfect for people who cannot attend a weekly session.  All abilities are welcome, as are pretty much all sewing related topics.  Classes are run in Alveston, Stratford upon Avon, in the village hall – The Malt House, one Sunday each month.  We start at 10am (with a cuppa) and continue through to 4pm.  Tea and coffee are provided throughout the day.  Lunch is an optional extra for £5, speciality diets catered for.

Students supply their own sewing machines and bring their sewing kit and project to work on.  The group is limited to 8 per session, ensuring maximum contact and input from me.  Cost for the 6 hour session is £50, with £20 deposit required on confirmation of the booking.  If you cannot attend for the full day, an hourly rate of £12/hour applies.

Topics covered in the classes include:

  • Tailoring
  • fitting
  • pattern cutting
  • lingerie
  • bra making
  • dressmaking
  • soft furnishings
  • bag making.

  1. Hi Anne, I wish I lived closer to you but I would love to come to at least one class. I will also tell my cousin about it as she lives in Pershore and may be interested in your classes. I wish you all the best with your new venture.

    1. Hi Debby, Thank you, I have people from all over, one lady comes from Chichester! I am planning some whole weekend sewing classes during the summer, so maybe that would work better for you. You could stay in a b&b. Thanks for your wishes! Anne
