Whether you’ve never threaded a needle or are just a bit rusty, ‘You sew fine’ workshops are the perfect way to start! Taught in an informal, creative atmosphere, come and learn the techniques of hand embroidery.

I run workshops in my home town of Hastings ‘Sewing on Sea’, as well as in London, and more recently the French Alps!

In Hastings, ‘Sewing on Sea’ came out of a desire to teach embroidery to the local community, and being surrounded by such creativity in Hastings and the surrounding area, these workshops grew in numbers now run annually in various venues.

I also work as a visiting tutor on the Hand Embroidery degree at the Royal School of Needlework as well as teaching my kits on weekend workshops.

I run small, informal group workshops as well as give private tuition to stitchers ranging from beginners to advanced. Maybe you would like to learn a new skill or perfect your stitches for a more professional finish?
