“Inspiring People to Pick up a Needle”

Based in: Unit 14, ‘Vane Tempest Hall’, Maynards Row, Gilesgate, Durham, DH1 1QF

The Sewing Room offers a range of lessons covering a variety of sewing techniques, from applique and embroidery, to patchwork and quilting and more. Aimed at complete beginners and upwards, or for those wishing to try something new. There is a collection of Janome sewing machines for you to use, (unless you prefer to bring your own).

Never used a sewing machine? Then take the introductory sewing machine class and you will be ready to attempt the rest.

Every customer is important  therefore if only one person books onto a class, the class will still go ahead. You will have the benefit of one-to-one tuition for only the cost of a class.

Small class sizes – To ensure everyone has adequate tuition, there will be a maximum class size of 6 and sometimes 4.

Disability Access – The Sewing Room is on the ground floor with only a small step (2 or 3 inches high), down into the classroom. A disabled toilet is directly opposite the classroom door.

For the Sewing Room Opening Times please see here.

Also available are One-to-one sessions, which we can arrange at a mutually convenient time. Contact me on: 077913 06497
