Sewing Classes and Sewing Workshops in Brundall, Norwich for Adult Beginners, Refreshers and Improvers

All my sessions are taught in a relaxed and comfortable environment in the GillyBee Sewing Room and you will leave brimming with more confidence, inspiration and feeling really proud of your achievements.

You will receive lots of tips from me to achieve a professional finish on all your projects.

I absolutely love teaching and have oodles of patience to take you through your sewing/dressmaking projects.

One To One Sessions

1-2-1 sessions are available at £25 per hour. You may want individual tuition to make a garment or help with your overlocker or sewing machine.

Curtains and Blinds

I offer sessions to make curtains and roman blinds for competent sewists who can both use a sewing machine and handsew.

The sessions last for 3 hours and cost £95 per person – you can attend with a friend for which the cost will be at a discounted rate of £150 for the session.

Please contact me to arrange a mutually convenient time.
