Improver - Browse Sewing Classes & Courses

Improver courses & classes are perfect for you if you have used and threaded up a sewing machine before, sewn in a straight line following a seam allowance, perhaps made a small item like a bag or cushion - but may need a reminder
We've also included below any 'beginner' and 'all levels' workshop that would be suitable for improvers

More advanced than this?
If you've already made at least 2 simple items of clothing with a sewing machine we class you as Intermediate so you could take a look at the Intermediate courses here - although many of these Improver courses may still be relevant to you

Sewing machines: 
We provide Janome 525s sewing machines* which are ideal for beginners and similar to many others in the shops so great to learn on - or bring your own if you prefer and we'll help you learn how to use it with confidence

Here's a reminder of all our Experience Levels:

  • Beginner
    - You're brand new to sewing, never sat at a sewing machine or picked up a hand sewing needle, never pinned & cut fabric
    - You want to re-learn/refresh the machine sewing basics from scratch
  • Improver - You have used and threaded up a sewing machine before, sewn in a straight line following a seam allowance, perhaps made a small item like a bag or cushion - but may need a reminder
  • Intermediate - You've made at least 2 simple items of clothing with a sewing machine
  • Experienced - You've made 5 or more items of clothing using a sewing machine, including set in sleeves & are confident sewing unsupervised

 *Sewing Machines: our in-class 'Janome 525S' sewing machines are lent to us from Janome. They are non computerised so very easy to use and are replaced every 18 months. These are sold locally at Brighton Sewing Centre & Varneys (details here) should you like them and fancy getting your own
