The freestyle sewing on a Saturday seemed to be such a lovely class and my 10yo daughter made bunting using a sewing machine, lovely fabrics, a pattern, and she pinned and ironed the material. She said she really enjoyed it with lovely staff and was very pleased with what she had made. Thank you.

My 2 girls love this class ! We always wonder what they will bring back home after each session and it’s lovely to see how different their creativity is :)
Nina Godfrey - 8 October 2023
I think everyone was so friendly and helpful, it was a wonderful experience (especially for my first ever lesson).
Amaya - 8 October 2023
My daughter loves coming to the classes. The team was supportive, caring and was eager to help everyone. It was very inspiring seeing all the other sewers pushing themselves to create incredible work. My daughter will definitely be coming again soon! (The review was written by my 9 year old daughter)
Daniel Thurley - 8 July 2023
My 13 year old loves coming here and has made leggings and a t shirt and has sparked a real interest in clothing design and textiles. Staff are really friendly and helpful.
SERENA LASCELLES - 2 July 2023
I’m 8 years old and I made my first bag! It’s so beautiful. I learnt so much and can’t wait to come back for another lesson!
Hannah Lowry - 2 July 2023
My nine year old daughter loves the first Saturday of the month sewing sessions and we've been so impressed at how much she's learnt. Her confidence and creativity have increased and she's made some fabulous creations. The teachers strike a great balance between helping/supporting/teaching and giving them space to be independent and to learn from trying things and making mistakes. It's hard to find classes as kids get older and this one has the benefit of teaching skills for life!
Daniel - 17 June 2023
My daughters been coming here for several months and loves it, she's made some bags, leggings, headbands etc, she's taught how to use the machines safely and correctly and can choose what designs / projects to work on.
Irene Galbraith - 14 May 2023

Josie Heneghan - 11 March 2023
Such a great learning experience and environment
Cornelia Lowe - 11 March 2023
Fantastic sewing classes for all levels. My daughter really enjoyed learning, from the basics of how to thread a sewing machine to following different patterns. Lovely patient members of the team have made the experience all the more exciting.
REBECCA MACEY - 6 March 2023
We were told about MakeMee by a friend and her daughter. We tried the Freestyle Saturday workshop (having no previous experience of sewing machines). What a delight! My daughter is just 6, but she was engaged throughout. We had lots of friendly help (even though it was busy) and we both made purses. My daughter is very proud of her creation, now showing it off at every opportunity :) The other kids there had been before i think, and were very impressive & inspiring
Zoe Williams - 11 February 2023
Both Zoe and Isaac love coming along to the monthly sewing session. They are learning new skills from patient and friendly teachers, they make great pieces and are always keen to come back for more!
Kelly Bush - 5 February 2023

Absolutely loved the sewing class, the teachers were great. I’m definitely going to sign up for more sessions.
Emma Prouvost - 21 December 2022
My daughter loves the sewing class and never fails to impress with the creations she brings back home. Last time she made a cat tail for her Christmas show :). It’s a great class for kids to boost their confidence and coordination with great teachers who are always on hand . Tracey and Jamie kindly provided advice in connection to buying a sewing machine and what accessories go with it in spite of their busy schedule. Thank you , we will be back ! :)
Philippa Williams - 13 November 2022
My daughter and I both really enjoyed the Saturday morning class. The teachers were incredibly patient and friendly. The machines and resources available were very good quality and we had a fun three hours sewing and crafting. It has helped me overcome a fear of sewing machines and I look forward to another class soon.
Freja Hamill - 8 October 2022
Freja had the best morning learning to make a bag and a key ring. The crafts are very much age appropriate and challenging and the teachers are lovely. We’ll definitely do another Saturday workshop before Christmas!
Katerina Milchevska - 4 October 2022
My daughter loved it! It was our first time coming to Crofton Park Library for the kids sewing club, but i have a feeling we'll become regulars every fist Sat in the month. She made a lovely foxy pouch that she's been showing around for the past few days, very pleased with herself. Thanks for the amazing time and fun ways of transferring useful skills.
Elly & Zoi Vernardou - 4 September 2022
I am impressed every time my girls go to Make Mee with all the goodies they make and bring back and wear on a daily basis! Its incredible!
Sulihat Owoyemi - 7 August 2022
I liked the make mee studio because I got to chose what I made and did most of the work. What I disliked about it was that I did not get to really go on the machine by myself but overall it was really good.
Cleide Marlene Moreira da Costa - 9 July 2022
Hi My name is Acacia I am 8 ,l really like sewing lesson, because it’s very fun, I can learn how sewing, and the teachers are very nice.
David Hunter - 5 July 2022
My son had a great time at the children's freestyle sewing workshop at Make Mee studio. He had stated making a hat at home out of his own interest and needed a bit of help to sew it together properly. The tutors at Make Mee enabled him to make what he wanted. I was very impressed that they managed to give such tailored (no pun intended) support to individual students. My son was really happy with the end result and said the time passed really quickly, he was enjoying the process so much. Thanks Make Mee studio!
Lola Kamp - 5 June 2022
My daughter loved it! She came back home with her home-made skirt, quite pretty indeed. She would like to go weekly :) Excellent skills to learn, while having fun.
Mary Elliott - 16 May 2022
This was the perfect first session for us both (mum and daughter) to learn to use our new sewing machine and to have guidance in our first projects. We both loved it! So pleased to have found your studio & looking forward to learning more with you. Thank you.
Eloise McKeown - 9 May 2022
We love the monthly Saturday sessions, the quality of the projects that come home with the kids is always astounding.
Iona Singleton - 8 May 2022
My daughter loves this class. I'm amazed at the stuff she comes home with - yesterday she stayed for the morning and afternoon session and came home having finished a backpack and made a pair of trousers from scratch. A really brilliant workshop.
Keira Waisome - 8 May 2022
I'm really pleased with my bag. Looking forward to the next session!
J - 8 May 2022
Super 3 hour session. Made a tote bag, hair scrunchie and pompom! Will definitely be going again.
Emma Prouvost - 3 April 2022
I love the class and making the scrunchy and the pillow. ( Emma,6) My daughter absolutely loves this class and has been asking over and over for more sessions.
Isabel Gilmore - 3 April 2022
My daughter absolutely loved her first ever session here. She’d never used a sewing machine before and came home having made a Hogwarts cushion which she was very proud of! She can’t wait to come again. Thank you!
Esther Agbolade - 3 April 2022
Love love all my sessions. All amazing coaches.
Grace Campbell - 13 March 2022
My two girls absolutely loved their first sewing class. They came out so excited and animated about what they’d made. It was a joy to see their faces! We’ve booked again. Thank you so so much Tracey & Jaime.
Cecilia Durbin - 13 March 2022
Cecilia was very focussed.. during the different sessions she's attended so far. and has challenged herself in making a few different items !! It is good fun for that age and the free flow works out well given the different levels and working paces.
Poppy Gleeson - 13 March 2022
My children have been enjoying sewing sessions with Jaime and Tracey at Make Mee since 2018. They love the fact they're allowed to choose projects based on their skill level but also encouraged to stretch themselves and develop new skills. The creations are amazing. Between them they have made jackets, trousers, skirts, t-shirts, shorts, bags and pencil cases. All from interesting fabrics so each piece is totally unique. We love these classes so much that since moving we now travel a 4 hour round trip to participate.
Alex Gimeno Mcmahon - 8 February 2022
Amazing as always, love fact they can create whatever pops onto their head on the day !!
CD - 15 January 2022
4.5 stars She enjoyed it very much - the range of options of stuff to make & the help from Jamie. (although she had her own project to learn to finish! ) She's booked to come again next month.
