Complete Beginner? Start here!
A Beginner Friendly Dressmaking Class
The beginner dressmaking series is suitable for the total novice or the returning sewist.
Every term a new pattern is chosen to make in this class, so you can discover or revisit dressmaking fundamentals and walk out with a new garment each time. We try to cover different techniques with every pattern, so your sewing skillset is always expanding no matter how many times you join us.
Courses to Expand Your Sewing Skills
For those who want to work on their own project
Do you have a project you've become a bit stuck with? Maybe one you'd would like to get some help with? Our open-sew offering is an excellent blend of expertise knowledge and a bit of tuition, all while achieving your own projects. All levels are welcome, but knowing how to thread a sewing machine is preferred.
A Lovely Place to Sew
I'm a bit in love with our West Wales sewing studio. And I know I'm kind of biased so here's some things that previous students have loved about the it...
it's a bright, airy space
the high cutting tables (goodbye sore backs!)
long individual working benches, which bring a whole new meaning to personal space - no knocking elbows around this studio!
a shared overlocker, which is always threaded
And really the best part about coming to our dedicated dressmaking studio is that everything is on hand; from endless cups of tea to a fully stocked haberdashery. Everything you need to get you through your project is here.
Still don't believe me? Here's some direct quotes...
"Camille is a genuinely lovely person who goes all out to ensure everyone gets support and direction to achieve their sewing aims .... her jolly outlook is contagious"
"I love the in-person teaching. I love the camaraderie of the group, having a whole, uninterrupted session to work through each stage and of course, having Camille right there."
