Why Learn To Sew?


Sewing isn’t all Lavender bags and covered coat hangers. we are a cool bunch making made to measure garment, our own wedding dresses and we make the most amazing interiors.

Don’t buy stuff, make some awesome gear. Super thoughtful and individual.

Create And Meet New Friends.


Dolly’s classes are small and friendly. Some beautiful friendship groups have been created. We have social events and coach trips to buy fabric. Although Dolly’s clientele is mostly females, we do have a few cool male sewers too.

Join us, come and be part of the best Girl Gang around.

Children’s Sewing, Children’s University


Our young talent is growing from strength to strength, we currently have a waiting list for classes. These talented fearless mini members of the gang tackle projects some adults would shy away from. Watch this space, these children are the designers of the future.
