Our 'Learn to Sew in a Saturday' course is designed with the absolute beginner in mind!

Learn all about your sewing machine:

  • what the dials are for and when to touch them!
  • the most common stitches and their uses, how to change their size and how big they should be.
  • how to thread your machine, wind a bobbin and change your sewing machine foot.
  • how to sew successful straight lines, back stitch, turn corners sew buttonholes.

As well as about:

  • Seam finishes
  • The importance of the grain when cutting fabric
  • Essential equipment for your sewing kit - what we use and what you probably don't need!

Whilst making:

  • a stitch sampler
  • bunting
  • a cushion cover with button hole fastener on the back.

What is included:

We will provide all the equipment you need, thread and fabrics etc... as well as refreshments and cake!  Plus you can pick the fabric for your cushion cover from across our store.

You can use one of our sewing machines, or if you already have one, bring your own - there is nothing like learning to sew on your own machine.  The only other thing you need to bring is your lunch :-)


Book a place on our follow up Saturday course, moving on to tackle curves and a zipper pouch, within 6 months and save 10%.


WHO:  Classes are kept to a maximum of 4 people, if you have your own sewing machine you are encouraged to bring it, there is nothing like learning on your own machine, but you can use one of ours.  You need no prior experience, just lots of enthusiasm!

WHERE: Courses are held in Duckington, just outside of Witney.  There is on-site parking and no stairs to navigate.

WHEN: Available dates are shown above - If you can't make it to the dates shown, why not consider signing up for a one to one or many course - click here to find out more.


Payment is required at the point of booking your place on one of our workshops or sewing courses.

In you need to cancel up to 3 weeks before the start of the class,we will offer you the choice of transferring to another date, or a refund minus a £15 cancellation fee (if we manage to sell the place this reduces to £5).

If you need to cancel within 3 weeks of the start date, we are sorry but we cannot offer you a refund or transfer.  With less than 3 week's notice it is difficult for us to fill places and it isn't fair on other people who would have liked a place, had they had more notice. We can put you on a reserve list for a future date, and if we still have spaces 3 weeks before the start of a course, we will slot you in at no additional cost.

If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, for any reason, then you can choose to complete the missed work at home, by coming earlier to future sessions, or by booking a 'catchup session' - catchup sessions are mixed sessions run a minimum of 4 times a year, where people who missed part of a course that was more than a single session long, can bring their project and complete their work - the cost for a place on a catchup session is £25 per person.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us - email call 01993 700411, or pop along to one of our pop-up shops (click here for details) to meet us in person and find out more!
