Welcome to The Sewing Lab

The Sewing Lab is a place where you can experiment with fabrics or have your creations bought to life by us.  We are passionate about providing sewing tuition to anyone. If you have never threaded a needle, or if you require advanced tuition for a special project then we can help you. 

The Sewing Lab was established by Jane Hitch and was set up to help customers with curtains & interiors.  We were then inspired to provide sewing tuition after seeing how much people wanted to learn to sew, and the resurgence of the ‘Make Do & Mend’ culture ~ of course the popularity of the Great British Sewing Bee, which is returning this year !!

We are specailists in teaching stretch sewing using standard sewing machines, overlockers and cover stitch machines, we are one of the very few schools that offer this breadth of techniques.  Therefore, we are exceptionally well set up to teach the making of dancewear and costumes, we can provide 1 to 3 day intensive courses.

If you are interested in dressmaking, soft furnishings or creating unique gifts we have Courses & Workshops that will unleash your creativity. We are also established experts in computerised Machine Embroidery & Free Standing Lace, and teach both the hardware and digitising software.

We also have courses for those that would like explore setting up their own soft furnishings business making Curtains & Cushions 

If you want to get sewing we also have fully refurbished Sewing Machines for sale - please contact us for details of machines that you woul be interested in.
