Social Sewing at it's best
Jan 2020
I have been going to the Wednesday evening class "make your own project" since January . I started sewing in September of the previous year. This class is amazing. The setting is calm, friendly and spacious. I was welcomed by Nadine who was totally interested in my project and has always been interested to help. It is an informal atmosphere and I have totall confidence in what Nadine advises. If you want to imagine what it's like, it is like walking into a John Lewis haberdashery department and working on a project with a group of friends. I have continued to book.

Enjoyable day
Feb 2020
Excellent beginners class, everything you need to get you started, Briony was a fantastic teacher, very patient and understanding, small sized group so easy to get help when you needed it. Pace was just right, the day was filled with instruction, demos, practice. We all had our own machine. Definitely booking another course, well worth it.

Introduction to Quilting
Apr 2019 • Friends
Not having sewn since school and being dyspraxic - can’t do numbers!, I initially felt way out of my depth but thanks to the patience of Bryony on Friday and Nadine on Saturday I needn’t have worried. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, learnt so much, had a laugh with the other ladies who were all so supportive and helpful. Would recommend York Sewing School to anyone who will listen and I can’t wait to go back! Thanks Nadine and Bryony x

Best Beginner's Sewing Course
Mar 2019 • Friends
Having been on a number of different sewing courses I can say that this one is the best. I completed beginners day 1 & 2 and learnt so much! Nadine and Bryony are so knowledgeable, patient and supportive. I love this course so much I've done it twice and will be booking on the intermediate course. And I love the pin cushion I made!

Beginners Sewing Course
Mar 2019 • Friends
Excellent - thoroughly enjoyed this. Nadine and Bryony were knowledgeable, approachable and supportive throughout. Well structured course which covered lots of areas from the basics up. Would recommend to both beginners and people like myself who haven’t sewed for a while and need a refresher to get them going again!!

I attended last Saturday's workshop
Feb 2019 • Solo
I can't speak highly enough of this workshop... as a beginner I was fearful before starting out! What a waste of energy! The staff were friendly, extremely professional, knowledgeable, patient and great fun! No longer fearful, I can't wait for the Beginners 2 workshop. Fantastic day, thank you so much.

Loved it
Sep 2018 • Solo
Had a great afternoon in a ‘Your Own Project’ workshop. I needed some help making a Roman blind and was nervous about tackling it on my own. I’ve made many things before but it’s been a few years and felt I needed a bit of guidance. Nadine was brilliant in showing me the way to do it so that it looked like a quality product. It was a small group of friendly ladies ... and although we were all doing our own thing Nadine guided us very well. The only problem was that I’m sure it’s a time warp as the 3 hour session was over too quickly! 😁 It has rekindled my desire to make something else and maybe try one of the many workshops offered. Thank you Nadine

Great teaching
Sep 2018 • Solo
Classes at York Sewing School are always excellent. They are well structured, with everyone able to progress at their own pace.
Nadine is knowledgable and able to support students whether they are absolute beginners or very experienced, always encouraging us to try new things and push boundaries.

Project Morning session
Sep 2018 • Solo
Just finished a my project morning and can’t say enough about how happy I am with my experience and the outcome of my project. I have completed sewing classes elsewhere ran by local schools as well as private ones and have found York School of sewing by far the leader. Having done bits of sewing I have further developed my skills with the excellent knowledge of the tutor. Her knowledge and experience is tremendous and delivered in a lovely warm friendly way, nothing is too much trouble and her patience with each individual is beyond belief. Will be returning again very soon to further develop my skills and would highly recommend to everyone whether your a beginner or experienced machinist you will most definitely learn something in a fabulous studio. 😊

An own project
Jul 2018 • Solo
The workshops are definitely not for beginners. The tutor is very knowledgeable, however, she’s rather busy and not very attentive, so if you happen to finish one step of your project and don’t know what to do next you just sit there and waste your time hoping someone will come and help you with further steps. Unfortunately, I don’t feel like I’ve learned anything new, apart from having a chance to practise my sewing skill.
