I have over 35 years experience sewing, from learning to sew as a child, progressing to dressmaking, home furnishings (curtains and blinds), accessories, and always to professional standards. I design and make my own patterns, and work as a freelance tutor. I hope you will come along and enjoy my workshops, where I am happy to pass on lots of information and tips.

Had a great time doing these lovely workshops, relaxed and informal, learnt loads, and I will be making lots more from now on. Particularly liked the zip bags, they can be used for all sorts of things. Thinking of Christmas pressies ;). Wouldn't hesitate to do more workshops with Judi
Simply all it should be. Lovely location, easy access from motorway, small group, very clear instruction from Julie at a pace which suited all, one stage at a time. Judi had time to assist everyone when they needed it. She is a very good tutor. We finished 2 zip bags on the day, most other workshops I've gone to need the work to be finished as home. I will definitely keep an eye out for more workshops.
