At my old premises on Church Road, I was constantly asked to run sewing workshops, but I just didn't have the space.
Since being in my lovely cottage on Buxton Street, Gatley, I have been doing lots of sewing workshops for all ages for the past year now, and am finding it so rewarding spreading the love of sewing and passing on hints and tips on how to succeed in creating a professional looking piece of work!
'Sewn Roses' workshops (aptly named due to most of my bags having my signature rose corsage) are for two hours at a time, as this has proven to be the perfect amount of time to create a beautiful project.. There is also a good saving if you book a course of six lessons....and each one can be booked around your schedule rather than the same time every week for example.
The workshops are usually one to one or for small, intimate groups, (ideally a group of up to 6 friends) and ran from the workshop ustairs in my shop.
I have sewing machines you can use, or if you have one that you would like to get to know better then please feel free to bring it with you.
All classes are booked around the times YOU have available and include whatever YOU would like to learn to sew, whether it be clothes, using patterns, soft furnishings, bags or other useful items which make the most original and thoughtful presents!
I also run sewing birthday parties for children above the age of 8, please contact me for details to discuss your requirements.
Prices are as follows for one to one tuition -
1 x 2 hr workshop £28 pp
6 x 2 hr course of workshops £145pp (saving of £23)
If booking for more than one person coming together then the cost is slightly reduced -
1 x 2 hr lesson £25 pp
6 x 2 hr course of workshops £130 pp (saving of £20)
Here are some pictures of recent classes and what 'The Roses' have made themselves!
