About Us

Welcome to The Sewing Club!

 

We're an established sewing school of professional tutors with industry experience and have been tutoring adults and children since 2007.  We run courses, workshops and private tuition in dress making and soft furnishings and we accommodate all levels from beginners to advanced.

On our termly courses you really can make anything you like and we encourage our students to be creative and original through their designs.

We also run screen printing birthday parties for children and organise fun crafty hen parties.

The Sewing Club venue is an inspirational design studio in the seaside town of Herne Bay, Kent which you can visit for a enjoyable 2 hour workshop by the sea or come regularly for a 6 week course.

All sessions are run by qualified and friendly tutors with over 20 years experience working in the fashion & textile industry both in London and abroad.  

 

Angela Pressley is the creative director of The Sewing Club and has a BA (Hons) in textile design.  She has over 20 years of experience of working both in the fashion and interior design industries. She has worked for Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan, Designers Guild and Colefax and Fowler.

 

 As well as a formal qualification in teaching, Angela has several years experience in teaching both adults and children. Since having her daughters, Angela has established her own interior design business making play tents, bean bags and other gorgeous items for the home.

 

She set up The Sewing Club in March 2007 to share her knowledge of dress-making and soft furnishing and she still teaches some of those students from the early days!
