The Sewing Studio is my space and yours. It’s where creativity comes alive for me, where I make stuff to delight buyers looking for a spark of originality.

The Sewing Studio is also a sewing school where you can learn to create magic with needle, thread and a sewing machine. I am pleased to offer this space to creative hearts and hands – and those looking for a creative outlet. I can’t wait to meet you!

Playing with fibre is my favourite leisure activity — whether it’s sewing garments and bags, spinning and making yarn for knitting or weaving, or creating portraits with my sewing machine and a palette of lovely threads, I love it all. Sewing is what I choose to teach because that is where my knowledge and skills go the deepest. This craft has occupied my imagination and my hands ever since I sewed my first dress at age 12. I have since taken many classes and workshops and have kept my skills sharp over the years. The best precision sewing techniques I learned from a brief  exploration of piecing art quilts and free-motion machine stitching.

I enjoy using the latest high-tech sewing machines as much as the next sewist but I have developed a soft spot for sturdy vintage machines because they stand by you through thick and thin — literally! I especially like them when teaching as these no-nonsence machines allow learners to better understand and execute the required,  step-by-step construction. (I make an exception here for modern authomatic buttonholers..)

swiderski-1-copyAt The Sewing Studio, classes are kept small (2-4 students) for better learning and a relaxed athmosphere. All equipment is supplied including sewing machines and cutting and pressing tools. Project kits are provided where indicated (kit fee is payable at first class). Registration is required to mark your spot.

I am a certified sewing instructor with Palmer-Pletch.
