Hello! I’m Mary Anne, and successful sewing starts here!
I created Sewing Seams Easy because I want to help you be more creative with fabric — whether it is making clothes or soft furnishings, or upcycling unloved items around the house.
Learn how to make beautiful items at our friendly Sewing Group weekly meetings near Liskeard, Cornwall.
There are also monthly workshops available for a complete beginner: maybe you have been given a sewing machine as a gift, and haven’t yet got the courage to take it out of the box? Well then, you have come to the right place! Now taking on private clients, running private groups & parties, just ask!
Why Do I Teach Sewing?
I love teaching people to sew, I’m a bargain hunter, design lover, incurable DIY-er, mother of one and grandmother of one!
I learn to sew at a very young age and it is a skill I love to share with others.
I live in beautiful Cornwall with my husband, a dog and 2 cats! Life could never be called boring.
Read why I do what I do…
I definitely feel that word of mouth recommendations are very important. Here’s a little selection of what some of my happy stitchers have to say about taking part in a Sewing Seams Easy course!
I recently attended the Beginners workshop. I had a great time, and achieved all sorts of sewing: from seams to hems.
I will certainly be signing up for the follow on sessions.
I thoroughly recommend Mary Anne, fantastic tutor!
I went along to ‘Getting to Know Your Sewing Machine’ this morning and had a great time. Mary Anne Robbins is a brilliant teacher and breaks everything down into simple steps. She’s great fun and full of inspiration!
I hadn’t used a sewing machine in over 30 years but now I’m off to buy a simple pattern to try out. Highly recommended.
I have just completed the zips for the terrified course – what a revelation!
They are no longer scary!
Great course in a relaxed atmosphere.

An abrupt change of events found us living on a narrowboat near Tring. It was during a recession & my online business was failing. Since I’ve been self employed since 1985 I am inclined to think that I’m unemployable, too used to doing things my way! A chance...
Buy the best you can afford; this machine could be with you for a lot of years. (I had a machine for 35 years & did a lot of sewing on it!) Usually the slightly more expensive machines have better motors & are more reliable. Buy a good make (hate to say it but...
My mother has recently had to go into a care home at the age of 98: she was living alone and kept forgetting to eat and drink. She wouldn’t have anyone live with her, so it was the only option. But this isn’t a sad story – it was really touching to see the things she...
