Join a sewing club like no other

Our sewing club is run in the New Forest, a short drive from Ringwood. We can help sewers of all abilities in a friendly environment, using purpose built facilities.

Jayne Edwards has been running a sewing club for over 20 years, and is presently working from the bespoke sewing studio at Gaddens, near Ringwood in The New Forest. The ethos of the sewing club is very simple: you sew what you like or prefer and Jayne will guide you, from an Ascot outfit to new curtains!

There are presently 2 sessions each week for 4 hours each and the charge is £15.00 per session.

  • Tuesday evenings 5pm to 9.00 pm.
  • Wednesday afternoons 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm.

There is a maximum of 6 students per session on a first booked first served basis.

You would be welcome to come as regularly or occasionally as you wish. The aim is to exchange ideas and techniques, to learn and to thoroughly enjoy your sewing!

Jayne is sponsored by Janome and has Janome sewing machines in the studio which you can use. It is however, better to use your own machine, understanding it and comparing types of sewing machine. The idea is to really become friends with your machine!

Periodically 2-day workshops are arranged, usually over a weekend, to pursue a joint project. Examples are: Leather Workshop to create a handbag; Millinery; Stretch fabric techniques; Jeans workshop.

We have a strong connection in our Couture Workshops with couturier Jon Moore of Hardy Amies and Kathryn Brenne of Vogue. Have a peek at our couture sewing courses. We offer regular residential courses using wonderful couture fabrics, taught by the experts, supported by Jayne.
