Sewing - All levels

Private Sewing Tuition

Would you like to have some 1:1 help with your sewing journey through private sewing tuition? Do you find it hard to commit to fixed workshop times?

Whether it's learning the basics or developing your dressmaking skills, we can help you achieve your goals.

Our tutors can start at the very beginning, teaching the basics such as how to use a sewing machine or overlocker. They can also help you to tackle a personal project or pattern that you're working on.

All private lessons take place in our gorgeous studio with full access to our top of the range sewing machines and overlockers.

About this workshop

After a booking is made, we will be in touch to discuss individual requirements with a short questionnaire to complete and a follow up phone call. This is to identify your learning needs and ensure a 1 to 1 session is the best option for you.

Please feel free to get in touch with Lorna, our Workshops and Events Coordinator and sewing tutor with any individual questions. Additionally please get in touch if you would like private tuition at a time not listed below or would like to book more than 2 hours.

Get in touch with Lorna via email: [email protected] or call the shop (0121 449 8419).

"Lorna clearly and patiently explained all the functions and uses of my dear Grandma's sewing machine even without a manual being available. My fear of winding bobbins and setting myself up has now vanished and I can't wait to get sewing!"

Lorna Hulme

Lorna is forever grateful to her Mum for teaching her to sew as an adult. She fell in love with everything sewing! So much so that she couldn’t bear to keep these skills to herself. Being driven by her passion for inspiring other people to sew, Lorna spent 7 years sharing this love of sewing through teaching others in her own sewing workshop business.

Lorna joined the Guthrie & Ghani team in January 2024 as the Workshops and events coordinator. She is responsible for organising the programme of events and sewing workshops and will be joining the team of sewing tutors too.

Lorna loves all aspects of sewing but her particular passion is dressmaking.

When she’s not sewing she enjoys running, cycling, running around after 2 teenagers and drinking hot chocolate!
