Price: £38.50



This workshop has been designed for those of you who think they might like sewing but want to check before committing to our 5 week introduction to sewing course.

During this 2 hour class we will look at threading the machine, sewing straight lines and dealing with the raw edges of the fabric, all whilst making a lovely drawstring bag.

Everything is included, you can choose your fabric from across our store and you can use your own sewing machine or one of ours.


SUITABLE FOR:  This taster session is designed for those of you who have little or no sewing experience and want to see if sewing fits before committing to 'proper' lessons.

SKILLS COVERED:  We won't get too technical in this taster session, so if you want to know everything about your sewing machine you may be better off booking our 5-week introduction to sewing course.  At this class we will concentrate on learning by doing.   Skills covered included threading your machine, pinning, taut sewing, sewing straight lines and French seams.

WHERE: Course are held in Witney or Ducklington depending on class size and your own needs.

WHEN:  As this is a bespoke course we will agree a day and time to suit you.  We are able to offer slots during the daytime or evening, or at weekends. Email us at to check out our availability before booking.


If you can't make one of our group courses, or would like to complete a workshop or course which isn't currently running as a group course, then a 'one to one or more' course might be just what you need!

We are happy to teach all our group courses to individuals, or small groups of friends, find the course you are interested in, and view the price for the number of people who want to learn together above.  Contact us to select a date and time to suit your schedule and we can take it from there - once a date has been set you can pay in one go using the website, or we can divide the cost between the participants and invoice you all separately (the only days/times we can never do are Monday or Tuesday mornings).

If your group is larger than 4 no problem, if you are able to provide a venue then the overall cost of the course will go up by £15 for every additional participant.  If you would like us to provide the venue then the cost for the 5th person would be £26.50, and every person after that would add £15 to the overall cost - if any of this is unclear please do ask, we are happy to provide a quote. 


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 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!
