Thank you Lou.
Brilliant with the kids.
Both projects were fun and the themed cakes and personalised biscuits were just very special

It was excellent, I didn’t realise I could sew and I can’t believe I did it! Thank you, you taught me a lot.

Learn to Sew Together

Children’s Sewing Classes

Family learning sessions are designed to give you quality time with the special child in your life whilst learning something new

Each adult and child ‘pair’ sew a different project each.

I am there to guide the kids through the basics of using a sewing machine (including safety) and through making their own project as well as helping the adults along the way with theirs.

Open to children aged 8+, however, being a mum myself, I know that children (like adults) have very different personalities.

Lots of machine practice which isn’t usually available to primary school aged children!

As the child will spend 3 hours or more in a workshop, you are the best person to decide if they are ready for this. If you have a younger child who is great at sitting still and listening to instructions, please get in touch with me.

As with the regular workshops, ALL materials are included in the price as well as homemade goodies and refreshments.

Please see below details of forthcoming Family Learning sessions….

Everything is prepared before the class - including sewing practice sheets

Do you and your child already know how to use a sewing machine? Been to two or more Sew Need a Drink Family Learning sessions already? Then these workshops are for you. They include some more challenging techniques and materials making the sessions but still with the same amount of support, guidance and practise time!

Missed out on a Family Learning session? or the dates aren’t good for you? You can booking a private Family Learning workshop instead (I just need a minimum payment of £70 to cover two adults and two children). Additional ‘pairs’ are charged at £35 each after booking and additional children are £15 each
