I am now taking on private clients, tuition for 1, 2 or 3 hours in your home. This can be on your own or, if you prefer, with a friend to share the cost.
It is your time, so you tell me what you want to sew, make something from new, alter clothes/soft furnishings you already have, upcycle.
My private tuition classes are suitable for a complete beginner, or if you have children that you can’t leave to come to a class and don’t want to have to get a babysitter. Also suitable for a teenager to learn at home.
Times & days to suit you.
Charges: 1 hour £40 pp, 2 hours £75 pp and 3 hours £95 pp
Within 10 miles of Liskeard, there will be no charge for travelling.
Over 10 miles I charge 45p per mile.
Happily cover most of Liskeard and surrounding area.
For those who want the absolute best! My VIP option is for people who really want to get ahead with their sewing!
Having regular practical help and guidance will give you the results you want.
I am offering 6 hours per month private tuition in your own home for £175 per month per person by standing order (within a 10 mile radius of Liskeard, then it will be 45p per mile).
So every month you can book up either 3x2hrs/ 2x3hrs/ 1x4hr + 1x2hr/ 1x6hr! Times & days to suit you.
This will give you masses of help with your sewing projects, learning new skills at every session!
Thanks for today Mary Anne – I’ve been practicing this afternoon and made some little bags for the children which they’re very pleased with! Definitely book you in for another lesson soon. Thanks again.
If you would like to know more about Private Tuition, and upcoming availability, please send me an enquiry via the form on my Contact page. Thank you.
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.
