About the Course
Join Sandie for a 3 hour morning class to get you using your sewing machine with confidence!
With 30 years experience of sewing and bespoke dressmaking Sandie’s Sewing Bee was established in 2016 to share her knowledge with those of all ages. This class is for anyone that would like to be more confident on a sewing machine. You may have had a new machine or have one sitting in the cupboard that you never use because it’s temperamental and you don’t know how to fix it. Even if you haven’t got a sewing machine you can come have a go on one of ours. We will start with the basics and send you home with a much better understanding of your machine.
Please get in touch with any questions or to book your place!
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?
Bring your machine or try ours, all other equipment provided. Tea, coffee, juice and biscuits free of charge.
My daughters attend two of Sandy's classes and they both love them. Well organised, fun classes. Sandy is lovely and great with the kids. Worth every penny.

My daughter (10) has been going to these classes for a few months now and really enjoys them. The range of projects varies each month and have always been practical, from christmas decorations and advent calendars to pencil cases. The improvement each monrh is really noticable, with less help needed each visit and the sessions are fun and relaxed too Now to just find the time for me to learn too!

I am 13yrs old and go to the teen class on a Friday. I love the classes and have made a bag and Christmas decorations. I am now going to be making a cushion and a skirt. Sandie is a really good teacher and explains everything really well and is very patient with us.

I have gone to Sandie's adult class for a year where I have learnt so much and gained in confidence. It is a relaxed class and I consider everyone who goes my friend.

I’ve been going to Sandie’s adult evening class for around 6 months and feel like I’ve been included like forever! It was great to use a new machine and I’ve made a couple of dresses with help including my Xmas night out one. Can’t recommemd Sandie enough, she’s simply awesome.
