Sounds like our Sew with a Pro Clinics are the way to go?

These three hour clincs are scheduled fortnightly (and if you want them we'll make them weekly!).  If you've thought about private tutition but the cost is a little out of your reach, this is a cost effective way to work at your own pace.  With a maximum of four people in the clinic, your teacher will be able to create a plan of attack just for you and teach you specific skills and techniques. 

Grab the project you've been planning to create and make it happen with the added guidance you need from a Thread Den Sewing Pro. You can book in for just one session or come to multiple sessions to complete your project in your time, at your pace. Thread Den provides the studio space, use of our machines and equipment and a skilled professional sewer to offer guidance, but please bring ALL the materials you need for your project. Session fee does not include Thread Den materials.

A lovely relaxed environment to receive advice and learn tips when aspects of a pattern are difficult or tricky. I've been to Sew with a Pro twice now and will sign up again soon.

Danielle was a great help with my lycra bodysuit project - she gave me great tips for sewing with stretch fabric and with her support I felt more confident to add in a few more complicated techniques that really improved the look of the project! Well worth it.

This was such an amazing class. I was taught so many new skills. I will definitely book I again to pick the brains of the teachers and give other classes a go too! Thank you!
