Our Freestyle sewing and dressmaking classes are the perfect solution for those who either need some help with a project or want to make something specific that we don’t cover in any of the group classes. These tutor led evening workshops are designed for those who have a good understanding of how to use a sewing machine but would benefit from some guidance from one of our qualified teachers.


You can come along and set aside some dedicated sewing time with the luxury of spreading out your project, using our tools & machinery and not having to tidy up afterwards! During these weekly sessions you can enjoy the company of like minded people in a friendly environment.


We welcome all projects, bring anything from an untouched pattern to half made garments to vintage alterations. We can guarantee our teacher will be able to tackle anything!


Tools and refreshments are provided. Booking onto one of our classes entitles you to 10% off everything in store from the class date until 2 weeks after.
If you want to start something new that includes techniques you haven’t tried before and would like to book onto a few consecutive classes then you can get in touch to receive a discount.

ABOUT YOUR TEACHER

Rosie Boycott-Brown developed an interest in fashion whilst at school, she grew up in a very creative environment and was taught the technical skills involved in dressmaking and pattern cutting from her mother who worked in the industry. She went on to study Fashion & Knitted Textiles at Winchester School of Art and enjoyed a career in the knitwear industry, designing commercially for several High Street retailers. Since a young age she has enjoyed adapting patterns and making her own clothes in her spare time. In 2013 Rosie started her own label and now divides her time between working for our Sewing School and designing her own range of knitwear & homeware under the brand name Rose B. Brown.


Moyna Hamilton studied clothing technology at London College of Fashion before going straight into the fashion industry and working as a pattern cutter. For over 18 years she worked for a wide range of companies from designers to high street suppliers and, after having children, she also successfully set up and ran her own children’s bed linen and accessories company called Eazy-Tiger. More recently she has been teaching in primary and secondary schools and is pleased to be combining her experience in schools with her years of experience in fashion to teach others the art of sewing, pattern cutting and making their own clothes.


Penny Follows has sewn since an early age, indeed she does not remember a time when she didn’t sew! She was fortunate enough to have a mother who was a skilled needlewoman and who created all sorts of stylish clothes for herself and Penny. Penny was encouraged to sew for herself by her mother and two grandmothers, one of whom was a tailoress. Penny worked with Janome as a sewing consultant at John Lewis and taught machine sewing at their flagship store in Oxford Street for a number of years. Penny joined our team of teachers at Ray Stitch in 2016 and leads a variety of workshops, sharing her passion and enthusiasm for sewing and making clothes. She combines teaching with running her own business called The Village Seamstress taking most pleasure in creating bespoke garments for clients.
