Our tutor Valeria has 10 years of experience in fashion design and is a great teacher with lots of patience and skill. She is also a bilingual English and Spanish speaker.
Learn how to use a sewing machine, hem trousers, mend your favourite outfit and make friends with crafty like-minded people.
Bring in new sewing projects or Val can teach you the skills needed to recycle and upcycle preloved items.
Also, you are welcome to come in and use the sewing machines at any time.
