I am regularly asked to alter garments that no longer fit or flatter. While I always prefer making items from scratch, it is also immensely satisfying to turn something that is heading for the scrap pile into something beautiful and functional again. If you have a garment that needs some attention, please contact me to discuss further. My rates are £10 per hour and I will advise of likely costs prior to any work commencing.
I offer one to one sewing lessons either at my home, or if you are in the South West, I can come to you. I have three modern Janome machines to teach on and a lovely spacious working area. Whether you are a complete novice or just need a refresher, I can cover the very basics from making a cushion, or how to read a pattern, to more advanced dressmaking techniques.
