Making Bags

Making Bags

Sewing is a great way to explore and express your creativity. I am a professional seamstress having worked as a theatrical costume maker at Cosprop in London, have run my own Soft Furnishings business and worked as a schoolteacher for 20 years. I hold City and Guilds Fashion parts I & II (millinery, pattern cutting, dressmaking) and have been making my own clothes and items for the home for many years – cushion covers, loose covers, curtains, children’s clothes, decorative and functional items. Come along and improve your sewing skills in a relaxed and supportive environment –

  • learn to sew from scratch beginning with the basics
  • develop your existing skills in dressmaking
  • make practical, useful items for your home and family
  • learn to use your sewing machine confidently
  • read and adapt a paper pattern
  • make your own clothes
  • carry out useful alterations to your existing clothes

Equipment I have a well-equipped workroom and work space. You are welcome to bring your own sewing machine if you prefer but there are plenty of machines here. All electrical equipment is PAT tested every year.

Cost  A one day workshop is £25 where the maximum number of students will be four, but the ideal number for learning is three.

Beginners will be able to learn some basic techniques and quickly move on to making a simple cushion cover, apron or bag.

Intermediate sewers might prefer specific help with their own particular projects – interpreting and reading a paper pattern, cutting, fitting, hand-finishing.

Groups are small and relaxed so whatever your skill level you will be able to make good progress.

When are the sessions …. You book a session at a time which suits you (morning, afternoon or evening) and come along for tuition as a beginner, an intermediate learner  or for assistance with your particular project as outlined above. A single session is £10 and runs for minimum two  hours. Additional hours added at £5 per hour.



I am based in Martham near the High School.
