Always fancied trying your hand at sewing? Perhaps you’ve got a poor sewing machine in the attic or you have a wardrobe full of clothes that need alterations? Come along to one of our classes in Chorley and see what all the sewing fuss is about!

Suitable for beginners and returning sew-ers  our Beginners Sewing Course is the perfect way to get sewing! Our studio is super chilled out so no need to be terrified. We know some of you are stepping out of the comfort zone coming to a class (GO YOU!) so you’ll be greeted with a cup of tea and a super chilled out vibe when you come to us! We focus on the social and the de-stressing side of sewing, so you’ll feel zen after your visit! You’ll learn how to thread the machine, and make lots of little projects such as a tote bag, bunting, zipped and lined make up bag, a piped cushion AND there is time at the end for you to start your own project with our help.

No need to bring or even own a sewing machine as we have everything you need in the studio!

All our classes are held at our beautiful studio in Chorley!

We have several different types of the same course these are:

  • 2 Day Class - Held at the weekend over 2 consecutive Saturdays or Sundays 10am - 5pm (£175)

  • 3 Day Time Classes - This is held during the week, during the day. Designed for those who work at weekends or want to work the class around their kids being at school. Runs over 3 weeks, 1 day per week from 10am - 2pm (£165, slightly shorter course than the other others)

  • Evening Class - Runs over 6 evenings, once per week from 6.30- 9pm (£175)


Q. Is it really for TOTAL beginners?

A. Yes! This course is suitable for people who have never even seen a sewing machine before in their life - so don’t be scared to give it a go!

Q. Do I need to bring my own fabric etc?

A. If you wish to bring your own fabric that is fine, we send out a materials list once you have booked. If you aren’t feeling confident about buying your own fabric, zips, cord etc DO NOT STRESS - We have beginners class kits that you can purchase and have waiting for you in the class. These kits include everything, and a little more, for you to complete this course.
