private sewing tuition
Have something specific you would like to learn or make outside of the group workshops? Or would just prefer some 1:1 help in developing your sewing skills?
Sarah Diane Creative can help with tailored sessions to your individual goals, whether that be learning the basics, developing your dressmaking skills, learning pattern drafting or simply getting the fit right. In fact anything else sewing related - the sky is truly the limit!
Our private lessons take place near The Embankment, Bedford, Bedfordshire with access to one of our sewing machines and overlockers, together with use of our sewing tools and equipment. All you will need to bring is the materials and pattern of your chosen project.
You can of course bring your own sewing machine however, please provide the full make and model before your session. If your machine is older than 1 year it must be PAT tested beforehand, which can be done by an electrician. This is to ensure the equipment is safe to use at our premises as we are unable to carry out any repairs for health and safety reasons.
If you are unsure of what materials and patterns to bring, we can help you. Please discuss this with us upon arranging your session to ensure you are fully equipped when you arrive.
Sessions can be taken either on certain weekdays during the day or in the evenings until 10pm, or on Saturday’s during the day. The booking calendar below shows the current availability (updated four months in advance approx.).
