Everybody can extend their thread of knowledge with this sewing workshop. This three-hour class in Wimbledon offers an introduction to industrial sewing machinery and over lockers.
The 1950’s are regarded as sewing’s “golden age” because of a strong focus on fashion sewing, designer patterns, and copying Hollywood looks.
The course is designed for those wishing to progress to a more accomplished level of sewing and making their own garments.

This will give you the confidence to use a sewing machine on your own and to attempt more ambitious projects, clothes making and alterations.

Being born into a family of seamstresses, Antoaneta started out her career in the fashion industry even before she finished her high school. Having been raised with a love for creating cloths and a sharp eye for detail she moved on to graduate from University with a Degree in Garment Technology. She started out developing her career while working for several Italian designers including Magia and Micelle Elite, creating formal wear and wedding dresses.
By 2010, Antoaneta moved to London and started working for a local bridal boutique as a part of the fitting and machinist team. She then transferred to Mark and Spencer's sample team in the heart of London with duties including the creating of first samples and advising on the best ways to construct samples.
This then led to the start of her freelance career as a sample machinist for various designers across London such as Tom Ford, Alexander Mcqueen and Victoria Beckham.
From 2013 she opened her own private sample studio with the goal to transfer her knowledge and expertise to others and at the same time to continue creating sample garments for designers across London.
