with Di Kendall
I'm based in Heage in mid Derbyshire (DE56) and I've been sewing and dressmaking for over 50 years. I have succesfully completed The Saville Row Coat to develop my hand tailoring skills. I'm keen to help others experience the joy of working with fabric to make something unique.
I can teach you to make the most of your sewing machine, to
make clothes that fit you - dressmaking lessons beginners to tailoring.
I'll teach sewing in your own home where I can bring a sewing machine to you.
I'll come along to a community group to teach dressmaking.
If you own a sewing school and would like me to teach workshops for you I will work freelance - including bra making, menswear. I will tailor courses to your requirements
