You’ve mastered the basics, feel at ease behind your sewing machine and are now ready to take your sewing to the next level!  Our Intermediate Courses are designed to equip you with extended knowledge so you feel comfortable working with a wider variety of fabrics, more complex patterns and more useful sewing techniques.  Our new Extended Intermediate Programme offers you the opportunity to expand your sewing knowledge using our self-designed patterns which are backed up with printed notes and our usual relaxed, interactive teaching style.   Let us know what new skills / patterns you would like to learn by clicking here.

The focus is on fun and interactive learning, as well as meeting new people. A refreshment break to recharge during each session is included in all our workshops and courses.

Please make sure your machine is oiled and in good working condition prior to starting any course. It’s a good idea to have it serviced if it hasn’t been used in a while. Many of our intermediate courses require homework to be completed between lessons so you will need to have access to a sewing machine at home.  However, if you prefer to not bring your sewing machine to lessons you may rent one of ours by booking one on your enrolment form.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
