Frequently Asked Questions
Got a question before you've booked a course, or afterwards? You'll probably find an answer here - or drop us a message!
Do you provide materials?Depending on the course you book, materials may be included. You will need to go onto the specific page listing and it will be detailed for you. Generally, the One-to-One classes will not include materials but the others will.
Which sewing machines do you use?
We use Janome 230DC sewing machines - full details on the sewing machines can be found here. These great machines are perfect for both beginners and more advanced sewers. They are ideal for children (aged 7+) too as they are all fitted with speed control dials.
How old does my child need to be for classes?
Children need to be 7 years old to start on the sewing machine. I will tailor the class lengths according to a child's age and attention span, so it is not overwhelming for them. Students up to 18 years old can also benefit from the Children's One-to-One prices.
I've got an old machine I'd like to learn to use - can you help me learn to sew on it?
Yes of course - If you have a machine at home that you would like to learn more about, I run a One-to-One service for Adults where I can help you with this. I will tailor the course to your requirements.
I'm looking for a One-to-One option for myself and for my daughter - Do you run these?
Yes I do :) Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, I tailor the course to your needs. I am very flexible, so we can organise convenient days and also times to suit either yours or your child's concentration levels too. I will travel to you for no additional fee if you are within 10 miles of Stratford-upon-Avon. If you live outside of this area I will still travel for an additional fee. Adults are 18+ and Children 7-18 years.
