You must be here because you are thinking about sewing. What a lovely thought. Perhaps you don’t know anything at all about sewing and are wondering how to start. Or you used to sew way back when and now you have the time to refresh your memory and skills.
I specialise in helping sewers like you…Absolute Beginners and Beginners.
No sewing knowledge or experience needed to join me in a course. You don’t even need a sewing machine or fabric! All you need is the desire to unleash your Sewer Self, to show up, and to be prepared to impress yourself.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS SEWING
The Absolute Beginners course will teach you the basics of using a sewing machine, which we do by working through some simple projects. There is nothing better than that sense of achievement when you have created something with your own hands.
Not sure if you want to do a full course?
Then the Intro to Sewing with a Machine class is for you. It’s a taster and you will learn how to thread and use a sewing machine and sew up your very first project. Intro to Sewing with a Machine classes are on specific Saturdays and during the week
What comes after you know how to use the machine?
The next step is to learn basic garment construction techniques in the BEGINNERS GARMENT CONSTRUCTION course.
You will learn how to choose the right size pattern, cut and construct basic garments like trousers, a top, and a skirt.
Beginners Garment Construction is for anyone who has completed Absolute Beginners or already knows how to comfortably use a sewing machine.
Beginners Garment Construction classes are 3 hours long and there are 8 sessions. We will complete 3 garments in that time.
A one-session class to show you how to take proper measurements, select the correct pattern size, layup fabric and cut. No sewing in this class but loads of useful information to help you on your way. You may continue with the Beginners Garment Construction course if you are keen to add more to your basket of skills.
Introduction to your teacher
I can't remember a time when I wasn't making or sewing all kinds of things. I find creative pleasure in diversity and have owned and run a baby-carrier manufacturing and retail business for 10 years. I have made and designed clothing ranges, soft furnishings, yacht canvas covers and so much more. Do I love to design and sew? Yes, I do. And now I get share my knowledge, skill and passion with those who are discovering the joy of creativity through sewing, one stitch at a time. It gives me pleasure to watch their growth - from mastering skills, to building confidence, to the excitement of the finished product. The best thing that I have done in my life of sewing so far, is to empower people by teaching it.
Unleash your creative spirit one stitch at a time.
Such a fun experience, Robyn helped me build my confidence week by week by starting off with small projects & building them up to more technical items. The best thing about the course is that you leave with practical items you made at the end of every lesson. I'd highly recommend it! "
"What a little gem you have created Robyn. Thank you so much to Sew-it-together studio for empowering me with the wonderful skill of sewing. I can't remember when last I was so excited to learn something new and looked forward to a Monday.
You are a great teacher!!
I can't wait for the next level.
"I have always loved sewing! But learning how to fit patterns using different techniques was the best part of Robyn's course. I gained so many new skills and techniques that have made me a more confident and comfortable sewer. She is a skilled sewer and patient teacher - an excellent combination. I would recommend her for all sewing ability levels. I thoroughly enjoyed the classes and best of all wearing all the garments I have made!! Go on, invest in yourself!
