Professional pattern designer and seamstress gives private and group sewing classes in Portsmouth.

Methodology

For private lessons I focus very much on what each individual is looking to learn. That may be the absolute basics of how to use a sewing machine or overlocker (I am happy to use my machines or teach you how to get the best out of one you own already). Alternatively if you have a particular goal in mind (cushions, curtains, a new dress for your upcoming holiday for example) I am happy to walk you through the process. In each session I will aim to either show you a new technique, or help you reach a particular stage in your project.

Background

I have been sewing professionally for three years, and for more than 20 years in total. My real strengths are bag design and fabrication, children's clothes and home furnishings, but I am happy to teach other skills and techniques if that is what you are after.
