Sewing School

Welcome to Our Sewing School

We welcome sewing newbies, and practised sewers looking to make some protected sewing time or develop their skills further to our sewing school based in Ducklington, just outside of Witney in Oxfordshire.

We have a programme of planned workshops and course on offer, as well as one to one and tailor-made group lessons.

We teach a wide range of topics, including:

  • dressmaking
  • quilting
  • bag making
  • homewares
  • skills focused sessions - such as zips and buttonholes, or pattern adjustment.

Browse our current programme of events below, where you can also find out more about one to one lessons, sewing parties and bespoke group lessons.
