  • The Sewing Shed

    Location: Ilkley,
    Contact: Leonie Pratt

    Whether you’re a complete beginner or want to develop your skills, The Sewing Shed in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, offers a warm welcome. You’ll get expert sewing tuition from a patient teacher, and lots of personal attention. You’ll be part of a small, friendly group of no more than 5 students. People come from all over the North to benefit from Leonie‘s professional training, patience and enthusiasm.

    Choose a small group or private tuition

    Beautiful award-winning studio
    The Sewing Shed is exactly that: a purpose-built studio dedicated to sewing lessons. Modern, bright and airy, it’s a great place to learn to sew.

    Wide range of classes
    You can learn anything from dressmaking (including fitting, and adapting patterns) to how to make soft furnishings. Our sewing classes will teach you to make interior items such as curtains, Roman blinds, cushions and loose covers. You’ll cover techniques such as patchwork, quilting, appliqué, concealed zips, free-motion embroidery, piping, bags, bunting, and lots more.

You will be hooked in no time!

    Lorna wants to share her passion of sewing with others by encouraging people to come together, learn a new skill, make something they are proud of and most importantly enjoy themselves. Class sizes are small with a maximum of 5 people to allow lots of guidance and support from Lorna. Classes include the use of Janome sewing machines, basic sewing tools and fabric in a lot of the workshops. Lorna has achieved the Level 1 NCFE in Dressmaking and Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
