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 partner, a dog and 2 cats! Life could never be called boring!

Why I do what I do!

Lots of reasons! To bring women together — women talk while they sew —groups become friends.

Women support and listen to each other, and learn while sewing. It is therapeutic, and a hobby you can share at any age.

I am going to support you in another way by helping you build a business like mine! I can’t physically teach everyone to learn to sew & I’m passionate about people sewing & crafting both for their mental health & to stop all the fast fashion going to landfill.

So, you are stuck at home maybe with the kids or in isolation, you can sew? Then this is the time to start thinking about starting your own sewing business. Before you shout me down think about it, by the time you are ready to start we could have some normality back in our lives. Your very own business would be ready to start taking on clients! I have a lovely eBook that will start to get your brain whirring & your creative juices flowing. Here is the link http://bit.ly/337jl8R please don’t miss out this could be your chance to build something for yourself & your family.

Do you really want to go back to the job you hated after coming through a pandemic? That’s if they have a job to offer you! Life is going to be very different, this way you will have more control over your life & will be able to do the things that matter to you & are best for your family.

I have run a successful sewing business for the last 8 years & I’m now ready to teach you everything I know! From how to set up, what to teach, how to market your business & all about social media, how much to charge. You will have a road map to follow. Dip your toe in the water with my eBook Start a Sewing Business from Home around your Family http://bit.ly/337jl8R

 Creating a support network to help each other, so no one will feel lonely, or feel that no one listens to them. We can laugh at our mistakes – learn from them. Pass on the knowledge to our children and grandchildren.

It’s a life skill you know! It truly makes us appreciate the work that goes into making good clothes that last, AND having things that fit properly!

Being able to look around your home and say, “I made those cushions/curtains/soft furnishings.”

I am contributing to the environment by refashioning/upcycling fabrics. 

Why not join us?

I have a simple dream: transforming the drab into fab with an arsenal of needles and thread. I often shop in charity shops, car boot sales, flea markets and antique stores with an eye for repurposing the objects I find.

I’ve made clothes and soft furnishings for people since I was a young child, starting off with dressing my dolls!

My Mum taught me to sew and I also had some lessons at school but mostly it’s been a case of passion joined with practice.

See you soon.

Beginners Sewing Machine


Make A Cushion


Zips For The Terrified!


There is no such thing...

As too much fabric!

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.
