Our teaching venues
The Sewing Lounge is our fully equipped teaching studio in central Hove. We have brand new Janome sewing machines, a cutting table all in an inspiring and creative setting! We've space for up to 9 students (up to 10 for hand craft classes) although we usually have just 6 or 7 in a class.
Most of the courses and workshops are held here, except the Pattern Cutting courses which are held at The Werks - details below. We can hire out The Sewing Lounge space to other craft/sewing teachers or to crafts people needing space to wortk on projects, so if this is you please click here for more details on hiring the space.
