What ya got there sunny?

This is very much a social sewing session and not an intensive teaching class so we require you to have previous experience.

If not or feeling rusty, book in to our ‘Learn to sew’ workshop and build that confidence up!

Brooke and Becky are happy to help if they can while the studio is running smoothly.

Do I need any previous experience?

Just a little. We recommend you attend our learn to sew – the basics workshop so you know how we like our machines to be treated. But if you have the confidence and previous experience then just get here already!

Can I stay a bit longer?

Sure! If there are no bookings after you and you need to stay a bit longer its £10 per hour or partial hour – Try not to rely on this though, better to be safe than sorry!

I didn't use all my time?

Too bad bro. I wish I could accomodate every single persons whim and wish and personal experience with speed of sewing, but this is how we roll so the admin is less painful. Soz team –

Can I bring my dog?

Nah not this time. I mean I would love to say yes, but because of all the pins on the floor I just know how this is gonna go down!

Can you show me stuff?

Maybe. As a member we are happy to share everything we know with you. If you are just dropping in, you are just paying for the space. Any wisdom and advice you require will cost ya.

What if I can't remember?

Go back to the beginning. If you have booked studio time and it looks like you can’t remember anything then you will have to book into a workshop to refresh your brain.

Shop FAQs

I am running late?

Damn it! We start our classes bang on time – It’s just how we roll. If you are late – you may be turned away and will need to re-book for another time.

Kinda like rocking up to the theatre late and the show has started so you have to wait outside until half time, except there is no half time and we can’t catch you up, and you will just disrupt the whole session. Think about your fellow class mates x

Can I reschedule my booking?

Yes! Please email to request a new date that works with our current calendar. This must be no later than 72 hours (3 days) before your class takes place. If you miss this window, tough titties.

Rescheduling is fine, we are fully capable, but it does suck lots of time, so please be clear and quick. Much appreciated.

I can't come and I only found out today!

Yeah sorry! We have already prepped and planned for your class by now, so you can send a mate in your place instead.

Sometimes we have a waiting list and are happy to offer your place. But no guarantees as this is not always the case.

I only used 1/2 of my booking can i use the rest later?

Not this time! We don’t refund or rebook any unused time.

Think about it like missing the opening act of a gig, you don’t get half ya ticket price refunded at the box office back cause you were late, or walked out half way through. You just gotta suck this one up.
