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.         I have now expanded my business to help you build a business like mine! 

 

When I started running a sewing business I had some surprises in store for me! I’ve sewn all my life & can’t remember what it was like not to be able to sew.
1) Barriers come down, people chat while they are sewing, make friends, you become a confidant.
2) Sewing helps with people’s mental health, not just the fact that they are using their hands, but they talk about home life, problems with the family & often quite intimate things. Usually, the group doesn’t know each other before they start the class, so it’s a safe environment to vent about life.
3) You can actually make a living from your sewing hobby! I’ve been running my business since 2012 & still love it!
In a few weeks, I’m going to open up a membership academy to help you set up your own sewing business. It will include Q&A Zoom calls, planning, cheat sheets, Facebook lives with loads of help & our own community, so we can do this together. Join my waiting list so you will be the first to hear when I open the academy!
Talk again soon.

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.

Happy Stitchers!

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.

They are no longer scary!

Great course in a relaxed atmosphere.
