About the Course

Whether you're a complete beginner or have been sewing for years we have skilled tutors for all abilities. ready to take you to the next step.

No need to book a whole course. At Stitchingtime you fit your classes around your busy lifestyle. Come once a week, once a month, anytime - whenever you need help we're there.

Bring along your own project for help and guidance on the tricky parts or start a new pattern with your own fabric or choose some from our selection.

Stitchingtime workshops specialise in teaching dressmaking for clothes that fit YOU: No more droopy dresses. twisted trousers or baggy necklines.

We'll show you how to find the strategic points on your body so that you can alter your pattern for a lower or higher bust, short or high waist and hip. We'll even help you identify areas such as uneven slope on your shoulders and show you how to alter your pattern so that your clothes hang better.

Whether you're a complete beginner or a regular dressmaker you'll learn something new every time you come to a workshop at Stitchingtime.

You'll learn tricks and tips to make your sewing easier and more accurate and you can try out our overlocker and cover-stitch machines. If you need a specialised course for your overlocker or want to learn pattern-making we do that too.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Free refreshments of tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the session.

We have two venues to choose from: Ramsden Bellhouse CM11 1RH on Mondays or Little Baddow Memorial Hall CM3 4TA on Wednesdays. Each venue has easy parking and disabled access.

Bring your own machine and sewing kit or hire ours. We have a good selection of (cheaper than the shops) equipment, threads and lots of lovely fabrics should you need them.

If you have any mobility issues please let us know and we will help you to bring your equipment into the workshop.
