sewing club

A small group of beginner to intermediate level sewers

In early 2019 I started a Sewing Club for sewing enthusiasts who live locally to me in Norfolk and wanted to be part of a small friendly group in a relaxed and creative setting, to learn new techniques and work on textiles projects from clothing and alterations to home furnishings and quilting.

  • Sessions take place at the Stitch Me Happy sewing studio in Gorleston, Norfolk

  • Sessions are 2-3 hours long and there are 2-4 sessions per month, with weekday, evening and weekend options

  • Pick and choose which sessions to attend; you don’t have to come to every class

  • Details of the Sewing Club and booking system are on our closed Facebook Group but if you don’t have Facebook you will be emailed all relevant information.

  • Use the Facebook group to share sewing tips/advice/projects with fellow sewists

  • Joining is FREE and there is no obligation to attend any sessions once you’ve joined

My Sewing Club is great for people who have already got a sewing machine but want to learn how to make more textiles with it and pick up more techniques and skills. It’s also a fantastic place to come and learn hand sewing. If you’re completely new to sewing you’ll need at least 1 individual session with me first - see ‘One to One’ under the Classes tab.
