About the Course
These weekly classes are suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced sewers. You work on your own project at your own speed and at your own level. Expert tuition and fantastic peer support guide you in making your garments. Lots of help with everything especially the tricky things like fitting and finishing. In the lovely bright studio nestled in a Victorian walled garden, you make friends, learn new skills and gain confidence. We also drink lots of tea and eat biscuits! Max participants 7.
You can book a class at a time but regulars get priority. Please contact me to discuss any questions you may have or find a date that suits you for a first session.

I’ve been doing dressmaking classes with Saj for almost 2 years now.
I started out making simple things for my 6 y/o daughter (which she loves) and have now progressed to making things for myself – including a tailored winter coat.
Saj is a great teacher, with years of dressmaking experience. She is very patient and encouraging – and classes are relaxed, friendly and supportive.
I would heartily recommend these classes to anyone who is considering it!

Saj runs her evening classes in a very easy going manner and this makes it a very friendly place to be. Saj is always on hand to help and is very supportive of the sewing projects I bring to the class.

Saj is an excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge to share. I attend her dress making class weekly and have been for a year. Starting as a complete beginner I have learnt a great deal and really benefit from her teaching style. I highly recommend Saj’s courses.

I attended a Go Deer course and found it extremely helpful and enjoyable! Saj has a knack of pairing a calm and friendly atmosphere with hard work and concentration. So I would highly recommend Go Deer courses.
