What people Say
“I can’t think of a better place to learn sewing than here. Friendly and great teachers who can cover from complete beginners to advanced dressmaking. The classmates are also very friendly. I have never touched a sewing machine before I started last year, and now I am making clothes & costumes for myself and my son!”
(Yen, student for 2 years)
“I’ve been going to Little Hands for a few years now – I’m part of the furniture there! What I love about it is that I can create whatever I want, it’s the only place I have found that doesn’t dictate what you are making. The teachers know their stuff – they’re extremely knowledgeable & have helped me from potential fashion disasters! I have got several comments from the dresses I have made and love wearing my creations! Little Hands is brilliant! They have loads of materials to choose from including ones from Ted Baker at a very reasonable price. ”
