Join a Sewing Class with Camille
It's time to get sewing something autumn and winter ready at a Thimble Studios sewing class in West Wales! Camille is a qualified dressmaker with years of industry experience to help guide you through the process, no matter what skill level you are!
Choosing Your Sewing Class
The levels are here as a rough guide for your ability, but no matter what you can expect a warm welcome, inclusive teaching and lots of one-to-one support in all our sewing classes.
Could also be called a Rusty Returner
You can thread a sewing machine
You are curious about different skills
In these classes, you will be introduced to a new area of your craft.
Expect clear step-by-step teaching, a gentle learning pace and building on acquired skills.
You have made a garment before
You can cut a pattern out.
You want to improve your skills
On these courses, you might be asked to do some prep at home and I, therefore, assume you have acquired skills such as choosing your size and cutting your fabric.
Expand Your Fabric Knowledge
Everyone, no matter where you are in your sewing journey, can benefit from this fabric masterclass. You'll learn more about the fabrics you've used in the past and leave with more confidence when pairing your fabrics and pattern in future!
Complete Beginner? Start here!
Our Beginners sewing classes are the place to begin if you've never used a sewing machine before, or it's been a long time and you'd like a refresher.
Expand Your Sewing Skills
Expand your sewing skills with a varied selection of classes for the seasoned sewist from the sewing studio in Newcastle Emlyn. From copying your favourite store bought item of clothing, to getting seamless with an overlocker and the perfect fit on your body, there's something for everyone in this season of sewing classes.
Sew Your Own Projects
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 and operate a sewing machine is preferred.
Sewing Classes I have Previously Ran
I'm running less sewing classes in Spring 2024 due to maternity leave and learning to balance work and a new baby.
Some classes I have ran in the past, and will most likely run again in the future are:

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."
