Welcome to Spinney Brook Workbox

COVID UPDATE: I have resumed classes, but only on a one-to-one basis, unless you wish to come with one other person of your choice.

My bespoke sewing classes, or what I call workboxes, are tailor made especially for you.  Indulge in a day where you can concentrate on using your sewing machine to work towards the projects you dream of, whether you are making cushions or soft furnishing items, clothes for your children or outfits for yourself.

Situated in south Suffolk, I am within easy reach of Ipswich, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Hadleigh, Lavenham and Stowmarket as well as over the borders in Essex, Cambridge and Norfolk – so well situated and conveniently located for pretty much most of East Anglia.  I am also able to offer accommodation to those wishing to travel from far and wide to enjoy a sewing mini-break.

Full & Half Day Workboxes

Workboxes can be personalised and are available to mix and match; please discuss with me if you would like to tackle your own project or mix the projects on offer.

Beginners Sewing Machine Workboxes

If you are in trepidation or wary of getting your sewing machine out of the cupboard, this could be for you. Bring it along and get to know it again, so that you can once again have confidence in using it.

Family Workbox

The idea here is for an older person in the family to come along with a younger family member to have some fun together, use a sewing machine and go home with a completed item.

Gifts & Bits Workbox

Choose from a selection of items that will make great gifts. Your day can cover many skills, including appliqué, easy quilting, inserting a zip and making and using bias binding.

Book one of the workboxes outlined, or design your own to work on your own personal project.  Perhaps you lack confidence or the knowhow to get started? In a small group of no more than four, or even one to one, I will help you on your way and give you the skills you need to use and enjoy your machine.

(All classes can be booked for a maximum of 4 people)

Or you may already be proficient, in which case you could try something different or improve another aspect of your skills with some close personal tuition.  Maybe this is a chance to spend time together with friends, or enjoy mother and daughter time.

So dust off the machine that has been at the back of the cupboard for too long and find out just what you can achieve. Alternatively, use one of mine to try a new hobby or help in your decision to buy a new one.

Your special day includes tea and coffee, a homemade soup lunch and delicious homemade cake to reward your labours at the end of the day.
