Whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to expand your skills I aim to have a class that will suit you. 

With years of experience and knowledge I’m keen to pass on the tricks of the trade that give you a better fit and finish. Learning should be fun and I’ve covered all kinds of projects and age groups in my sewing journey. Happily fuelled with tea and biscuits!

Based in Edinburgh, my studio is an explosion of colour and creativity.
If you are interested in 1 to 1 tuition my hourly rate is £30. Times can be arranged to suit so contact me to discuss further.

I was delighted to be expertly guided in to making my own shirt that was in my own style.
