Access for people with disabilities or injuries
The Sewing Lounge (our Hove classroom) benefits from amazing light and peace & quiet, being at the rear of the 3rd floor of Kingsway House. Students come back month after month here as they love the venue, class and teachers. However there is no lift, so you will need to walk up a few flights of stairs to reach us (we're on the 3rd floor).
If you think you may struggle with the stairs but are still keen to attend a class, let us know in advance and we can arrange for you to arrive slightly early and get help up the stairs from the teacher - either helping you or carrying your sewing machine for you. We do have lots of Janome 525s sewing machines available, so you don't need to bring your own, but if you prefer to learn on your own sewing machine we can help you by bringing it up. Email us here if you would like to arrange this option, saying which course or workshop you are booked onto.
Private Classes at your home We can sometimes offer private classes at your home with one of our teachers depending on where you live, if our Sewing Lounge accessibiliy is a concern for you. Please get in touch here or visit our private lessons page here for more info. (There may be additional charges depending on location, travel or parking costs.)
