Teach Me To Sew, is an independent sewing school, three miles from the town of Bishops Stortford. We offer a variety of sewing, soft furnishing and dressmaking courses at all levels, from a very well equipped bright and airy studio, we have on - site parking and are just a 5 minute walk from Stansted train station with links to Cambridge and London. I have had 26 years teaching experience in London, having taught courses ranging from Corsetry to Curtain making and everything in between, more recently I have been involved in the writing and development of the recent City & Guilds Interiors qualification, with many years’ experience in the Fashion and Soft Furnishing industries.
We offer certificated and non - certificated courses, so if you have always wanted to learn how to sew but have no idea where to start why not test the water with one of our beginners courses where you will be shown the very basics of how to use the sewing machine and go home with a cushion, or bag that you have made yourself. Our classes have a maximum of 5 learners so you get lots of one - one tuition. We also offer courses for those that want to add to their existing skill level, such as skirts, dresses, knickers, corsetry, bra, Roman blind, cushions, draping, personal dress form and more, including our popular Open Sewing Classes where you can come along and work on your own project. We are very flexible and are happy to put on courses at learners suggestion.
