Learn to sew in beautiful Derbyshire!

Sewing classes for all abilities

  • Absolute Beginners (never held a needle?!) - learn to sew and how to use a sewing machine from scratch

  • Intermediate - extra tips and techniques using a sewing machine…do you know how to use a machine but would like to learn how to add a buttonhole or add a professional finish using bias binding?

  • More experienced (want to learn new techniques?) - learn new techniques such as free motion machine embroidery, or learn how to sew with new materials such as waxed cotton or pleather!

  • Families (Adult and Child [aged 8+]) - looking for something different and creative to do with the kids over the holidays or at the weekend? At family learning sewing workshops, both Adult and Child learn how to sew and complete their own project on the day with full support.

Why Sew Need a Drink?

  • It’s EASY! No preparation or materials to be bought beforehand as EVERYTHING is supplied..... you just have to bring yourself.

  • Materials are prepared for you so you can arrive, settle down and start sewing straight away

  • NO COMMITMENT! Projects are completed on the night so you can pick and choose workshops to suit your life

  • You always leave with something to show off to friends and family - even if you are a complete beginner and haven't even held a needle!

  • Patient and understanding tutor

  • Lots of delicious homemade cake and refreshments

Great cake, teaching and support.
Always come away with a fab make too!
