If you need some help with a sewing project or just some extra time in the studio with a machine, then this Sewing Sessions is ideal. Come along and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of The Stitchery, meet new people, and get expert help with your creations. Bring along your up-cycling, your alterations, or any unfinished projects that you just need a little help with.
Each session is 4 hours long, but you are welcome to come and go as you please. We have sewing machines available but you are welcome to bring along your own machine. We also have an overlocker (Janome 6234XL) and a coverlocker (Janome Cover Pro 2000CPX) that are available on request. You are also very welcome to bring along your own sewing machine if you prefer.
