2 hour workshop
Bring along an item of clothing you want to embroider on to, freshen it up and make it on trend or simply create a stitch sampler on fabric. This is a free design class, we'll show you an array of different stitches you can learn and you can pick and choose what suits you, and we'll send you our handout of stitch techniques after the course!
A relaxing way to spend a morning. We can show you an huge array of stitches you can then use to carry on your new hobby at home! Make sure you absorb all the knowledge you want to, and then if you want more help and guidance you can pop back to one of our Sewing Surgery Socials.

About your host, Make Mee Studio
Make Mee Studio is run by Tracey & Jaime. Two enthusiastic lifelong sewers (both sewing since they were 5 years old!) They love sharing their making skills with others, and have over 10 years of combined teaching experience working with adults and children. They offer sewing lessons, parties, alterations, makes and commissions in their Brockley, South East London based garden studio and are also available for external school and community projects.
Tracey is a very experienced seamstress who has been working in the business for over 18 years, she started as a costume assistant working for Grenada and the BBC going on to run her own bespoke label and then she began teaching 6 years ago and fell in love. She one of the most precise sewers you'll ever meet and always has a handy hint or trick up her sleeve. She loves keeping the studio neat, tidy and organised, everything has a place!
Jaime primarily studied Textile Design gaining a Masters from Chelsea College of Art. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and textiles, she began teaching as an antidote to the endless cycle of fast fashion. Teaching people how to make and sew and fix and mend themselves can have a huge impact on how they consume and how they feel about their clothing. She is a self-taught dressmaker and loves encouraging people to make things unique, she's a magpie for anything, velvet, fluffy or sparkly and is terrible at keeping to Tracey's organised system!
If you have any questions, please contact Tracey & Jaime using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
Bring along an item of clothing to stitch straight on to, or some special fabric to create your sampler. We also have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which we just ask for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. Feel free to get in touch before the class to discuss fabric choices.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
