Our Story


Hi, I’m Kay, I am absolutely delighted to introduce myself  as the new face of Sew you Can and can’t wait to welcome you all to our lovely studio.

I’ve been sewing since I was a little girl my lovely mum Linda had the patience to teach me. I made slightly iffy items for my Sindy doll to wear and that’s where my sewing journey started. I kept up sewing well into high school and excelled at fashion & textiles which lead me to a long career in DAKS Simpsons Larkhall. I was a Team Leader of  training and a Quality Manager of Ladies wear this gave me a vast knowledge of patterns,large scale garment manufacturing and of course the DAKS way which was always Quality Quality Quality!  I went on to run a successful soft furnishings company JA Interiors from home while my 3 kids were little making curtains, Roman blinds & cushions etc.

 So, if you have always wanted to learn to sew but didn’t know where to start, I can help you. If like me there’s a dusty old sewing machine in the back of your cupboard but you don’t REALLY know how to use it, I can help. If you do know how to sew but your projects never seem to fit correctly or something seems to always go wrong I can help, or if your wee one is bursting with enthusiasm and want to learn to sew and you can’t even sew on a button, let me teach them.

Sew You Can is my dream, but I hope it will make your dreams come true too. If you dream of a me made wardrobe, of perfectly fitting clothes, of seeing a designer frock and being able to recreate it yourself I can help you make those dreams a reality. If you are just looking to learn some thing new, meet new people and have a laugh I promise that our classes will do just that too.

I hope if you’ve made it this far in reading Our Story you will give us a try. I promise that our studio is warm, friendly, and welcoming and not at all like school. You won’t do anything wrong, there’s nothing to worry about, but you will have a cuppa, probably a biscuit and at the end of the class feel amazing about yourself and proud of what you’ve made, so, what are you waiting for.

See you soon
