Teaching people how to sew and be able to make their own clothes or other fabric based projects gives me great pleasure.

Following my hobby, I took classes at the local college and gained a City and Guilds in Fashion. I really enjoyed learning about creating fashion and gained many new skills that I passed on to others in the local community education classes. Later, I completed a business degree and became a qualified teacher, which I loved. Now I want to go back to my hobby and give others the skills to enjoy a new practical and creative leisure interest.

I have called my business - Fun with Fabrics and Fashion, because that is exactly what I want my students to have.

Group Classes

Advanced Dressmaking

This is a group for the more experienced dressmaker but if you know something of the basics I am happy for you to join us.

Students choose their own project and work through it with guidance to complete to a more professional finish.

Projects covered so far include tailoring and making and fitting a trouser toile as well pattern cutting for skirts.

The three hour session is great for allowing total immersion in the project but with time for friendly chat and getting tips from other students. In case you are wondering about the fee - I am doing this group as a volunteer for AgeUK who run the Gilbert Richards Centre.

It's a: 
Gilbert Richards Centre Broadway Earlsdon
COVENTRY, Coventry, United Kingdom
Date and time: 
Friday afternoons 1 - 4 p.m.
£5.25 per week plus annual membership fee £15


Aimed at: Beginner and Intermediate.


I am very flexible in offering the learning to students, either:
a) teach in groups
b) one-to-one lessons in the students own home or a small group of firends
