The Avid Seamstress Workshops



Our workshops are fun and relaxed for you to come and learn to sew or enhance your sewing skills and meet some other lovely sewing friends.

Workshops are run by Lisa Falconer, owner of The Avid Seamstress.

Where do the workshops take place?

Our evening workshops take place at Baskervilles Tea Shop, a gorgeous tea shop in Palmers Green that runs a craft evening on a Thursday night. We get a lovely space in the tea shop to hold our workshops and each workshop includes a lovely cup of tea and delicious piece of cake!

Our 1:1 lessons can take place at your home or mine.

How do you join a workshop?
You can sign up to a workshop by booking and paying directly through the website  - this is the best way to ensure that you have a confirmed space on the workshop.

I want more info before I book

That's ok - feel free to email Lisa and she will gladly answer any questions you have -

How many spaces are there on a workshop?

We keep our workshops small to ensure that you get 1:1 attention and leave the class feeling like you got everything out of it. Therefore, spaces are limited - so sign up as soon as you can. If the class is full, or you can’t do the dates the class is on we would be happy to do the class as a 1:1 lesson (how's that for full attention?!).

What do I need?

Some of our workshops include all the materials you will need - even down to a sewing machine!

If you need to bring anything we will list everything you will need, therefore please check this in the workshop description before booking. Once you have signed up we will reconfirm the things you will need to bring.

Cancellation policy

Once you have paid for the workshop if, for any reason, you are not able to join the class we will do our best to move you to another date.

Cancellations made on the day will incur a 20% cost of the total workshop fee.

Please try to give us as much notice as possible so that we can fill the space.

If there is any reason we have to cancel a class we will let you know as soon as we can. We will offer you the next date that the same class is available and if you are unable to join we will offer you a full refund.

Looking forward to sewing with you!
