Learn to sew...
Love to sew...


At The Studio at Number 30, you’ll gain confidence in your ability to sew to any level, depending on which classes you attend.

I started The Studio at Number 30 with one main aim: to share my passion for sewing.

I’ve always wanted everyone to feel relaxed and encouraged, while learning tailoring-standard sewing techniques. People call it “The Kaye Way”.

“Completely brilliant. I’ve learned so much and gained sewing confidence. Kaye explains everything so kindly, at our own pace … I absolutely loved doing this course.”

But it’s about much more than sewing . . .

People kept telling me that they gained much more from the classes than just sewing skills. They love the social aspect just as much – real “me time”, away from everything else, sharing experiences with other people from their local area. Many have formed lasting friendships. I now place as much importance on the social side of our classes. We organise Sew Socials, where people come back to chat and sew together, plus a host of events . . . keep checking this website for latest news, or sign up for our free newsletter.

“I am addicted …  Kaye’s instruction is fantastic, and the classes are fun as well as informative.”

All our courses are accompanied by an interactive course workbook, which takes you week by week through all the techniques you will learn, with tick-off checklists and places to stick all your examples. This then acts as a reference handbook to keep by your machine at home. We also offer support from our Social Sewing WhatsApp group. We are always on hand when you need us!

Whatever your stage of life or previous sewing experience, I guarantee you will enjoy exploring your creativity, meeting like minded people AND learning new skills. I hope you’ll be inspired to find a class that suits you.

When I’m not teaching sewing and helping Kaye with the business you’ll find me sewing or  researching and buying fabric!


The love of sewing and all things handmade is something that I have had from a very early age.
