This Beginners sewing class for Teens and Tweens will teach all the basics of learning to sew. We will then choose a project (or two) to create some easy sewing projects especially created for teens and tweens that can be made again at home!
We will go through all the basics that you will need to learn sewing for beginners including all the basics of the sewing machine. The class will then make a simple project (Bag, cushion cover or purse) using fabrics of your choice or bring along some of your favourites from home!
The ‘Sewing for Beginners Class’ are set in Greenwich Market in our studio upstairs and are always kept small in size (so we can get the most out of the workshop session) with nibbles & refreshments provided!

What some of our ‘Sewing for Beginners’ participants have to say: –
Hi Libby, I just wanted to say thanks for the great class last night! I am so pleased that I was able to walk in without any confidence in using a sewing machine, and walked out with a great bag! I’m amazed really! I really enjoyed the class, and just wanted to say thanks – just a little bit of knowledge goes a long way! You really have helped give me confidence to start sewing! Have a great day! Kind regards Sarah J “ Sarah Warrington
