PRIVATE SEWING LESSONS with The Avid Seamstress (2 Hours)

Every so often we all get stuck with our current sewing project. Regardless of how long you have been sewing or even if you can’t use a sewing machine at all, sometimes we all would appreciate that expert in the room to show us what to do.

Our 1-2-1 Workshops are designed to cater to what you need.

Your two-hour session will help you get to grips with what’s troubling you, support you in making amazing progress with your project, or the beginning of your journey in learning how to sew AND leave you with the confidence to continue on your own.

Once you have booked your session we will plan and tailor the time together to focus on the areas that you would like to develop.

Recent 1-2-1 workshops have included:

  • Learning to use a sewing machine
  • Learning how to use an overlocking machine
  • Reading and understanding a sewing pattern of your choice
  • Tackling a particular part of a pattern/sewing project such as sleeves or zips
  • Learning how to create beautiful buttonholes
  • Making one of our Avid Seamstress patterns under our expert guidance

Day, evening and weekend times are available.

Adult and children’s lessons available.

Once your workshop is booked we will get in touch to confirm the date and time or this can be pre-agreed before booking.


Our founder, Lisa Falconer, has been an avid sewist since childhood. She loves to spend time in her studio developing sewing patterns and teaching the incredible art of sewing.

Lisa’s mantra is “enjoy the whole journey; she will teach you how to enjoy each stage of creating a garment, from preparing the fabric, pinning and cutting to finally sewing. Each of these are integral parts of the process, and she loves to inspire an appreciation for each of these stages. She’ll teach you essential skills, tips and tricks, and you’ll have a great time along the way.
