All Machine Sewing Classes

We do not provide sewing machines for classes as we believe that you will learn more from using your own machine. If your machine is too heavy to lift; let us know before the class and we can make exception by prior arrangement.

We can help you to get your sewing machine from your car to the workshop space upstairs if you pull up outside the shop on the double yellow lines to drop it off. Then you can go and park in the car park behind.

Lunch Breaks

If your class goes over lunchtime you can either:

  • Bring your lunch with you
  • Pick up a sandwich from the lovely Commute Cafe over the road (it's best to pre-order before the class to guarantee availability).

Our classes generally only break for a maximum 30 minutes so there isn't really time to go out and buy lunch during the day.
