I had absolutely no experience behind a sewing machine before this beginner’s course and came out of the course having made three items that I was very proud of. I thoroughly enjoyed learning from Jen and I was amazed how much she managed to teach me in just 6 weeks. I highly recommend this course and I am now completely hooked on the idea of sewing. Thanks Jen.

Jen provides a very interesting, very enjoyable learning experience with follow up emails and instructions for some classes which takes away the fear of practising at home. Small classes means you’re never sitting wondering about much for long! Great classes and I will be back.

Great workshop. Jen taught us so much in the 3 hours, she explained everything so clearly I didn't feel I was getting too much information. I feel a lot more confident in what I can use my overlocker locker for and how to adjust settings if it's not stitching how I want it to. I would recommend this workshop to anyone new to using an overlocker. I will be looking to book some of Jen's other workshops as I enjoyed the relaxed environment and small number of attendees.

Artisan Stitch Q&A

Artisan Stitch Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I learned to sew when I was 7 years old. I've spent my whole life learning about all forms of fabric work so I'm passionate about it. I love sharing my knowledge and experience and encouraging others to love sewing in any form as much as I do.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I realised that others were not offering an adequate service of actually teaching people to sew and didn't had the breadth or depth of experience that I have. It seemed obvious that I'd have to start teaching my own methods and techniques I'd learned and developed so I could help people fast-track their sewing journey and avoid all the common beginners mistakes.

Why should our clients choose you?

I understand that it can be a scary thing to learn to sew and I can use methods designed to help you overcome any nerves and learn to sew confidently. I limit the number of students so I can give lots of personal attention to each and tailor tuition according to your needs. I also offer one-to-one tuition for specific requirements.
