sewing workshops

Level: Beginner - Intermediate*                                      Venue: Stitch Me Happy sewing studio in Gorleston, Norfolk

Length: approx 3 Hours, one off sessions        Size: Group bookings of 2-5 people      Price: £25-40 per person


If you want to make a group booking of 2-4 people to attend a sewing workshop you can choose from the workshops I currently have available; they are updated fairly regularly so if you like learning new techniques you can come back again to try out different projects. Each workshop is a stand alone session where you come along to make a specific textile item. All materials and light refreshments are included.

  • Bring your own sewing machine (domestic, general purpose, electric sewing machines - not overlockers) or borrow one of mine (I have 2 basic machines available to lend).

  • Make and take home the project you have selected (list further down this page)

  • Take home the pattern/instructions for your project so that you can make it again at home

  • Short break with light refreshments included

* Not recommended for absolute beginners; I would recommend taking my Basic Introduction Class or Basic Refresher Class first if you are completely new to sewing or haven't used a sewing machine for a long time. Once you've learnt the basics you'd be able to book one of my workshops. 

Really enjoyed my bloomers workshop with Emma. She took a lot of time preparing the workshop so it was ready and perfect for us. She shared her skills and experiences and we felt very welcome in her home which was a lovely set up. Look forward to the next one!
