I rarely write reviews but I had such a fun time at sew over it that I had to. Me and my sister went to the intro to sewing weekend this weekend and our teacher Dominique was simply amazing. I had never used a sewing machine before but over the weekend we learnt so much, so much so that i think everyone is going to be getting cushion covers and totes for christmas! Both me and my sister will definitly be back for the introduction to dressmaking class soon!
Sew Over It

Posted: Wed May 2 2012
Independent stitchers can drop in and sew at this informal sewing café, where machines can be hired for £5 an hour (including a pot of tea). For clueless crafters, there are a host of classes ranging from the broad – an introduction to sewing, for example – to specific workshops where you can learn how to make a pair of knickers, a make-up bag, or even a ’50s dress.

LOVED my trousers course I took at sew over it. I have really struggled to get the fit right on trousers I've made before but after the course I now have a pattern that fits me perfectly, and some funky new trousers! Totally ecommended if you are like me having trouble with fit
I live just round the corner from Sew Over It and can I say what a delight this little place is! I first came when it opened and took the Cushion Cover making course. I kept sewing at home and recently came back for another course in dressmaking with freya - who is fab! Would recommend to anyone :)
I love the idea of this cafe, so quirky and sweet! I booked the intro to dressmaking course which was teaching you how to use a pattern (something I've never done). Firstly I was told the wrong time (i had email confirming the time) so I got there an hour late which I received no apology, also I was told that the patterns go upto a size 20 so being a size 18 I thought I will be ok but I had to pay an extra £15 for the pattern to be adjusted because it didn't fit and this was in ear shot of the whole class.....I was humiliated!! lovely idea shame about my experience :(
