Classes & Workshops

I love teaching and offer classes tailored to suit your needs.  My mantra is KISS – keep it simple, sweetie, and I really believe in using simple techniques to create stunning results.  Just follow the links for more information.

You might be a group of friends or a long-established sewing group, maybe a WI or craft group – whoever you are, I can bring one of my workshops to you.  You organise the venue and I’ll bring the inspiration!  More details here.

Perhaps you would like to join one of my day or weekend workshops.  These focus on a specific skill or project.   More details here.

RIMG0121If you are looking for a weekly class, then join one of my termly half-day  courses in Watford or Letchworth.  Choose from Beginners or those with some experience.  

I also offer Online classes.  These are weekly sessions and follow a similar structure to my face to face weekly courses.  If you like to have a guided learning environment but can’t get to classes then this is for you.  

More details here.

Classes do assume a basic knowledge of sewing with a machine but if you are not at that point (yet!) then consider my occasional Absolute Beginner short course during which you will learn about your sewing machine and use it to make a simple patchwork project.  I maintain an interest list for this and then run it when there is sufficient interest.  Please email me to be added to the interest list.


If you are a busy person and would love to learn a new skill but you cannot commit to a regular time then you may like my VIP sessions.  You get to work with me one to one in the quiet of my home away from any distractions.  With my undivided attention, and a programme geared specifically to your requirements we can achieve so much.   Book a VIP session with me in Watford for just £150.
