Learn to sew

Learning to sew can be a scary thing at the beginning and sometimes you just don’t know where to start!

This section of the site is dedicated to getting the info you need all in one place!

+ Check out my tips for getting started here as well as a sewing dictionary covering most of the basic terminology!

+ I’ve gathered a collection of amazing resources from across the web here to help you too!

+ If you feel like you’ll learn better in person, try your local adult education centre for reasonably priced lessons or check with your local fabric shops. Those with the studio space will often hold them too.

+ If you’re London based, I’m also offering one-on-one lessons in my sewing studio in Bromley, South London. Check out what’s on offer here!
