Sew Friendly open sessions (3 hours)

weekly sewing class at Made and Making

Our regular stitch classes for those looking to build their skills or sew in a friendly relaxed environment.

Need help with some dressmaking? Looking to adjust a pattern? Stuck on a piece of patchwork? Not sure where to start with a project? Want some pointers on how to complete your project? These sessions allow you to bring along your own project and our tutor will be on hand to provide any guidance that you may be after. Or just come and sew in company!

Sessions last 3 or 5 hours depending on the slot that you book.

Please note that these sessions do need to be booked in advance but don’t worry if you don’t have a machine as we have plenty in our studio that you can use on the day.

During these sessions you are welcome to use our Overlockers (free) , Coverstitch machine, ideal for hemming stretch fabrics, (£7 per hour)  and Sashiko machine (£7 per hour) . Support and tuition is provided you just need to let us know when booking so we can make sure we have everything to hand.

What you will need

Please bring everything that you need for the project(s) you wish to work on.


Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.
