I’m running lots of classes this Autumn for various sewing studios and shops. Join me for some fun sewing and to learn lots of new techniques
2nd – 3rd September Claire Tyler’s Sewing School, Midhurst
15th 16th September – Made And Making, Hassocks, Sussex
– This is a two-day class. Take away the pain and difficulty of getting garments to fit you perfectly by making your own Body Double. Using a dressform, padding and detailed measurements you will recreate your own figure with my help. Mimic your own curves, bust point, hips and bum so that you can use your Double to create a perfect fit every time. Once you have made your Body Double you will test it out by making a simple garment, firstly tissue fitting and then sewing it to fit – you!
9th September – Goodwood Revival, Goodwood
- Come for an early morning class on the Saturday of Goodwood Revival and make to take away a retro circular skirt with comfort fit elasticated waist. You will make French Seams, use the quartering method to add the elastic and double turned curved narrow hem – all whilst learning hints and tips to make sewing easier.
22 – 24th September – Creative Sewing Weekend, SOLD OUT
24-26th November – Creative Sewing Weekend, New Place Hotel, Shirrel Heath Near Wickham
Join Jennie Rayment and me at our four CSW this year. We are all about Christmas in November!

And of course, if you prefer to come and dressmake, you are welcome to do that too!
