The Sewing Space

The Place for Beginner Sewing Workshops & Beginner Quilting Workshops

Our motto here is ‘Sewing Soothes the Soul’ and we want to encourage and inspire you to sew with our sewing workshops! We offer beginner sewing workshops , patchwork workshops and quilting workshops right here in our lovely, fully equipped sewing room.  It’s so easy…nothing to bring but yourself (and maybe a friend).  We provide the sewing machine and all the equipment you need.  Materials for the sewing workshops can be purchased right here on the day (or beforehand if you take a long time choosing).  We even supply the tea and coffee.  Our goal is to help you learn in a relaxed, friendly environment.  We have many repeat customers to our workshops we’re pretty sure we’re getting it right!  Read some of our Facebook reviews of our sewing workshops to see for yourself.

You can learn to sew in one day!

sewing workshops at the sewing space

  • Been given a sewing machine and it’s still in the box?
  • Tried sewing but gave up as soon as the machine stopped cooperating?
  • ‘used to sew’ but gave up when fabric shops became hard to find?
  • Always wanted to learn to sew but had no one to show you how?
  • Thinking of upgrading to a newer machine but are a bit unsure of the computerised versions?

We can help.  Have a look at our Introduction to the Sewing Machine workshop.  We’ll have you confident and sewing in one day.

Individual attention in small sewing workshops and quilting workshops

We teach in groups of 4 so you receive plenty of support and encouragement.   The goal is to teach you the basics, provide you with tips and give you the confidence to carry on sewing at home. You’ll be proud to take home a handmade item for yourself or a special gift. Our workshops make a great day out for friends and have become quite popular as gifts!  Many people attend our sewing workshops as a way of meeting other local, like-minded people or just as an opportunity for some uninterrupted sewing time.

Subscribe for our up to date list of sewing workshops and quilting workshops

Because we only allow four people per workshop they do tend to fill up fast.  Our newsletter is a way of ensuring you are among the first to know when new sewing and patchwork workshops become available. Please scroll to the bottom of this page (on the right hand side) to subscribe.  I don’t send them too frequently, but they are especially helpful for letting you know when the new workshop schedules are available or when we have special events.

Visit this beautiful fabric shop at our convenient high street location in Hythe, Kent

We’re so lucky to be located in a beautiful Grade 1 Listed building in the centre of our busy High Street. It’s a perfect, inspirational place to showcase a hand-picked collection of fabrics from top designers and manufacturers. The selection is always changing and I think you’ll find that the prices are very competitive with the internet. (And if you want to get it right, you KNOW fabric just has to be seen and touched!) We also stock the full range of Simplicity patterns, sewing magazines and books, haberdashery and general quilting and sewing supplies.

If you’ve never been to Hythe, it’s a real treat. The High Street is full of unique, independent shops, boutiques and tempting cafes.  Hope to see you soon!
