Do you know anyone getting a sewing machine from Santa? If so why not treat them to one of our gift vouchers for a private lesson, group workshop or kid’s club session. Prices start from £12.50.
We have a lovely selection of hand sewing kits suitable for beginners and children age 6+. We also have a range of Christmas decorations so fill your home with unique handmade gifts and trimmings.
Make your own Christmas present
Fancy making your own gifts this year, but not sure where to start! Then come along to one of our festive workshops or pop in to hire a machine, bring your own fabric supplies and with a little guidance you will be producing decorations, bags, cushions, bunting etc in no time.
Working with Schools
I am happy to announce I have teamed up with a number of local Schools in the Harrogate area to teach an after school sewing club. Projects include patchwork cushions, purses, bags and pencil cases. The feedback has been fantastic from students and parents.
If you have a connection with a local School and would be interested in me visiting to teach either a one off workshop or a series of after school clubs then please get in touch.
Take a look at our brand new programme of workshops on our workshop page.
As well as our popular machine appliqué, patchwork quilt and crochet courses we have introduced classes to make a messenger bag, stocking and advent bunting.

Changes to our Saturday Morning Kid's Club
Due to the increase demand of our Saturday morning kid’s sewing club we have decided to make a few changes from Saturday 3rd October.
Firstly the club will now run weekly, Yeah!!!
The same session will run for 2 weeks, therefore every other Saturday will be a different activity, still making it a fortnightly club for your child. Or come weekly and make the same thing twice!
We will also be limiting the class size to a maximum of 8 children per session due to the amount of space, time and equipment available.
You will now need to book each session in advance to secure your child’s place. Booking can be made via email or phone. You are welcome to book more than one session in advance.
Each session will cost £12.50 per child. All materials, equipment, tuition and refreshments are included in this price.
Sessions and dates coming up;
- Saturday 3rd and 10th October – Mini Messenger Bag
- Saturday 17th and 24th October – Cosmetic Bag
- Saturday 31st October – Halloween project
- Saturday 7th and 14th November – Stocking
- Saturday 21st and 28th November – Mini Christmas Bunting
- Saturday 5th and 12th – Patchwork Christmas Tree Decorations
- Saturday 19th December – Mystery Project
We hope the above changes will mean everyone can be accommodated onto a session and gives Caroline the opportunity to spend more time teaching each child.
