The Studio Pass... a bit like a ski pass but for people in West Wales who sew. Carve out your time to sew, distraction free, in the Thimble Sewing Studio - expert advice on one hand... and a cup of tea for the other!
The Open Studio Pass is for you if you often find yourself with multiple unfinished projects, lack of motivation to sew or are finding a particular project difficult.
Maybe you don't have enough space at home to lay everything out, or the lack of space makes you lose your excitement about tracing your patterns?
With the Studio Pass, you are welcomed into the Thimble sewing studio twice a month to work on your own projects, with access to sewing studio staples such as a pre-threaded overlocker and basic haberdashery.
The Studio Pass is open to all levels of sewist, from beginners through to accomplished dressmakers. Opening the studio up is about bringing together like-minded people to engage in an activity they enjoy, away from the stresses and distractions of their daily lives.
How does the Studio Pass work?
you buy your pass - this gives you 10 hours of sewing studio time
you let me know in advance that you'll be showing up on the day the studio is open to you (I need to have the biscuits in, don't I?)
you turn up, stay for as long as you want or need, then we deduct these hours from your pass when you leave
repeat until your hours run out (at which point you can choose to buy a new pass, or not)
Please note: the pass operates on a use it or lose it basis. Any hours left over at the end of March 2023 cannot be refunded or carried over into the next season.
What are the benefits of the Studio Pass?
a friendly welcome and unlimited teas and coffee (important! They go with the biscuits!)
my expert advice and support to help move you through projects
an overlocker that is already threaded
large cutting tables, lots of room to spread your work out, tracing paper
access to my basic haberdashery - no stalling due to lack of supplies around here!
an unhurried pace, calm atmosphere and like minded people - you will be free to pop on some headphones and crack on, or engage in chitchat with whoever happens to be there that day
Kind words about the Sewing Studio
"The studio is excellent. Tables for cutting out are nice and high to save our backs. The workstations have ample space and suitable lighting. All necessary tools are available and most importantly Camille is there with her knowledge and skills."
"Having a dedicated space, and sharing it with like minded people really helps. Also having Camille there in person to answer questions and talk through problems is fab"
The Studio Pass is £160 for 10 hours of access to the studio. Payment plans are available here.
Please familiarise yourself with our Terms & Conditions before booking.
